Hi all
how do you know if your turbo is Knackered?
are there any symptoms?
things that are blindingly obvious?

just wondering as mine seems to have a different sound now:confused:

sorry also meant to say, I seem to have quite a bit of oil traces in the air intake parts including the intake manifold.

and it is hesitating like the clappers now

cheers

Is the power coming on and off as you accelerate? That's what happened mine and a turbo repeat sensor sorted it. Any smoke?

hiya mate
no no smoke just hesitation all through the rev range!!
ie you could just be bimbling along at 30mph with a steady peddle and it drives you crazy with hesitation,
but you put your foot down and it goes ok.

cant understand it

Sounds to me like possible injector trouble. Only a thought but that was one of my other problems! (of which there have been many) Bumbling about in traffic bouncing about like an idiot!

Does this car have an egr valve? If yes, classic egr buggered symptoms. HAd exactly the same symptoms on an Astra with knacked egr.

Ah yes! Forgot about the egr! Did that too! Lol. Try that first but don't rule out injectors either.
