    Default help needed....

    i have noticed a creaking when turning the steering wheel and coming from the front wheels. any ideas what this can be?
    also sometimes the car can be a rocket and other times can be sluggish then suddenly shoot off.

    ideas on both please

    thanks in advance

    Inconsistent/sluggish power:-
    1) Clean/replace EGR
    2) Clean/replace boost sensor
    3) Check/replace vacuum and boost pipes.
    These really are simple to do if you can handle a spanner and set of allen keys. Read the How2s on the site, and give them a go, with a mate who has a set of tools if necessary. It can save you a few hundred quid.
