Default HELP!!! Turbo has gone!

Hi,

When driving home from work this evening, my pug felt really sluggish (especially when going uphill) and though the engine was running quite happily, it had no "boost".

Wondering if it's a turbo problem, as there's no whistling coming from it.

Any ideas what it could be?

It's a 2.0 HDI, there's no warning lights, no smoke or leaks. Just as if the car is a normal diesel without a turbo.

Thanks,

Tij

There is a heck of a lot of things it could be, ranging from a 2 minute fix, to .
Best bet is to get a diagnostic scan done and see what it comes back with.

I thought might be on the cards. Ok, I'll get it checked out.

Out of interest, what would the simple things to check be? Hoses and that sort of thing?

Vaccuum pipes, intercooler pipes, wires etc etc are the simple things to check.

Morning.

Plugged my scanner into the reader prot this morning and it has come back with the following error code:- P0299 "Turbo Super Charger Underboost"

Would that point to a sensor or a loose pipe ?

This code pertains to the turbo housing resonator which makes the turbo quiet. Normally, the part is broken into to 2 parts which are glued together. This is the source of the problem, the glue usually fails and this affects the turbo pressure which is usually needed in going uphill. The part can be bought from the dealer or check your after market supplier of this turbo model. On some European cars, this P0299 fault code can also mean that the waste gate solenoid actuator is defective. As such, it could cause turbo inactivity causing the engine to loose power. To check, test the wirings of the turbo waste gate solenoid and the vacuum supply to the actuator. If OK, the most common fix is to replace the waste gate solenoid.

Thanks for your answer.

I've just tried calling my dealer parts dept and they've never heard of one! They say is it the Air meter?!

The bit that fits between the airbox and the turbo?!

Is that what I'm looking for?

Sorry for the questions, but I'm used to playing with classic Alfas instead of pug diesels!

No, basically. They want to sell you an air flow meter.
Probably best off going to a turbo specialist

This shows what you want
P0299 code is an engine turbo housing resonator defect
