    confused Has my Turbo died? Vectra C 1.9 cdti 150 16v

    Hi there everyone,

    Just after some advice. Been out in car today and all was okay until after about half an hour of driving around the car seemed to be sluggish, I had a feeling something was wrong but at the time I was in a built up area in traffic so couldnt be sure.
    When on the open road it became obviously tthe lack of power and up hill car was really struggling, some times having to drop one or two gears.

    Ive been looking at second hand turbos and emailed a local company that reconditions them but before I buy anything expensive is there anything else it could be. I am fairly good with repairs is a replacement a DIY job?

    Thanks in advance

    Tim

    Its probably not the turbo. More likely one or both of the following: EGR valve, inlet manifold/swirl valves.

    I know my swirl valves are disconnected as the bar was off in the valley for ever and when I did the fix from the forum the EML came on so I took it off again. I've cleaned EGR a couple of times is there anything I should look for?

    Thanks

    I've just been to look at vacuum pipes and there is one that goes over engine that really small and seems to go from a small meter tube into a larger metal tube, anyway that's just come off in my hand, it seems to have split all down one side. I put a piece of heat shrink on it and tried engine, it ran a bit lumpy then on checking pipe the little bit inserted in the big bit had come apart. Could it be this part? Where can I get something to replace it tomorrow?

    Thanks

    If you mean the plastic bit that was inside the pipe i just threw it away and stuffed the pipe back on .the orignal pipes are useless uou will have to replace it in time but they are cheap enough.

    Yeah I think that bit, it's all brittle, been reading a thread about this pipe, I don't think it's helping but it seems a bit extreme for it to completely lose all power for a small piece of tube.
