Ok hi to all......
I took my car for its MOT 2 weeks ago which gladley it passed
On the way home i noticed a slight difference in performance but nothing major. I then went out an hour later and had a car full, its then that i noticed that something was really wrong.
It would creep up to speed but the moment i put my foot down it would lose power and not want to go anywhere. The next day i went for a road test to try an get a feel for what was happening and i noticed that the turbo seems to be working correctly as i can hear it whiring up but no power. I have bin through the forum an tried most things that are recomended e.g (Cleaning EGR, Cleaning air intake manifold, blocking off EGR etc)
I took it to a mechanic on sat who plugged it into his laptop using opcom software, there were no fault codes only the ones that i had caused by messing an pulling off random plugs with the engine still running. In the end he put it down to the bosch air intake sensor next to the air filter box. Which in all honesty i dont think it is, he then ran off with my last £40.
Tonight i took the car out for a long run 50 mile all round trip, i have noticed that when maintaining a costant speed (70mph) its like the car has got its own heart beat, it struggles for 5 seconds like some kind of flutter then gets a little power for 1.5 seconds. It seems to do this for the whole journey. and this is all around 2000 revs.
If anyone has any answers i would be very greatful for your replies
