    Default Thought i had blown my hybrid turbo today.......

    On my back from from ipswich to northampton on the A14 doing the legal speed limit and...........


    Loss of power over 2000 revs and car and spanner light on followed by clouds of smoke out of the back

    Pull over in a layby and put my code reader on to get the code (P2279) then searched for it online on the BB. Seems quite a few people had the same issue, air system leak detected. Next step was to lift the bonnet and I find that the top intercooler hose had blown off as the original VX jubilee clip had given up.

    Managed to tighten it back up but could not do it fully as the worm drive would slip. Got home by driving a bit slower and fitted new jubilee clip and all is fine . The hose was just about to come off again but at least the temporay fix got me home. Have ordered a T bolt clip as these are what I have to my FMIC

    Hi merikiito
    Vx have had trouble with this one,before you fit your new clamp clean the hose face with brake cleaner/petrol or similar to prevent it sliping again
