also the 1.4’ have turbo issues from what i researched they have a lifespan of 60~70k miles before something with the turbo fails (weather its electrical or mechanical). my 13 1.4t stick has underboost codes and i’ve replaced everything but the the turbo in mine.

also when you replace the turbo i forgot what it’s called that does what i’m about to tell you automatically. before you shut your car off let it idle in park (or n if you have a stick) for about a min to let the hot oil circulate out.

Turbo timer is what it’s called. Not really needed in modern day cars unless you’re revving it to the sky then immediately turning it off. 😀
thank you for that i couldn’t remember what it was called, but imo i think there still needed because the eco’s and a lot of newer turbo cars are having similar issues. regardless i would put a turbo timer in or just let the car idle for a min as good preventative measure. me personally i just don’t trust any manufacturer when they say this won’t happen. perfect example is the auto shut off cars have when your at a light. i don’t care what they say using a starter (or any mechanical part not designed for constant abuse) like they do is going to wear them down
