    Vehicle : safira

    Trim : Se

    Engine : 120

    Year : 2006

    confused Loss of turbo whilst driving

    The Turbo drops out when Im slightly pulling up hill or easing off...

    Checked the HP lines from the turbo through the intercooler, no leaks

    All I get is 3000 rpm and really flat acceleration.

    Power off and re-start its all ok for a while.

    Very strange, even more so that the ECU is not logging a fault. Things that might have cause that which should log a fault are:

    1) EGR as always
    2) Vacuum control line to turbo actuator leaking
    3) A remap or tuning box issue

    Quite possible as you have an estate that the dpf is 70%+ saturated and putting strain on the engine due to the blockage or even limp mode, would have thought eml would be on mind but you never know
