    Default need some help guys

    hi all

    ok, took the car out before (vect c 1.9cdti 16v), lost all power after 2500rpm, no turbo nothing. had to restart the car and all was ok for 2 mins then same problem again, at the same time i noticed the thermostat had started working again, its not worked for 6 mnth so i thought it must be linked to the turbo problem.

    just had the AA out and the fault codes are as follows

    p2279 plus - intake air leak
    p0105 - map sensor

    any of you guys experienced these problems and if so how do ya fix it

    cheers all your help is welcomed

    Hose leak from MAF to turbo
    4) Turbo problems - including vacuum hoses
    5) Hose leak from turbo to intercooler


    check for splits in the intake hoses - the ones either side of the intercooler are prone as is the intercooler itself, but you would usually hear a whistling.
