the time has come where I think my turbo is finally on its last legs.
When I enter the turbo range I get a high pitched whistle sound, like a siren and I think it is starting to loose power. Very subtly it seems as other people who I rarely drive around, have noticed its lack of pulling power.
I have done a number of jobs myself (with heavy guidance) -
Throttle body etc etc...
But the turbo looks like a much bigger job! Also I can physically see all of these areas of the engine, on the 120 the turbo is part of the Manifold so I am a little lost as to actually where it is!
1) Where the hell is the turbo in the 120 1.9 vectra?
2) What turbo will my car actually have if I opt to purchase a new one?
have 4 turbos for the 120bhp model like mine. Anyone with any info would be great.
3) ease of replacement?
How difficult is this job going to be? I can imaging it being insanely fiddley as I can't even see the turbo under /over my car!. I have a set of ramps and tools, will it be enough to do a replacement? I have a haynes manual but it practically ignores the 120 model and gives more info on the manifold removal.
