    Engine : 1.9 CDTi

    Year : 2005

    Default 2 litre Dti no power

    I will be looking at a friends car at the weekend that has no power.

    I had a quick code read but there were no codes at the time so took it for a quick drive.

    No engine management lights but it feels like the turbo isnt cutting in. I could 'rattle' the actuator rod a bit. Is that normal?

    Is there anything to look out for?

    Can/should you hear the turbo spool up?

    Turbo vacuum pipe, one of the rubber elbows will have split, the turbo just stops working, no lights on the dash (well not when the turbo stops but when it first started happening limp mode and spanner would've popped up) and no power, just masses of fuel consumption!

    I have access to a smoke machine so will bung that up one and see if there are any leaks.

    I did have a chick check but didnt see any obvious splits but will have longer this weekend.

    Spot on.

    Turned out to be one of the the straight joiners that goes to the valve/sensor on the slam panel.

    Thanks
