    Default Me & My Big Cakehole!!!!!

    After saying my service went well today in another thread, for my £200 I now have a problem that wasn't there this morning.

    PICKED UP THE CAR AND DROVE IT HOME, THOUGHT, HMMM BIT SLUGGISH CONSIDERING IT'S JUST HAD A MAJOR SERVICE!!!

    Had to nip out tonight, and thought, hmm still no guts but it is cold, so anyway with a fully warmed engine it's still gutless, gets on the motorway and gets to 70, all power goes for a moment and on comes the spanner light, I hope they've not allowed a youth experience kid to service my car today as I know they have a few floating about right now.

    So where am I?

    Air meter
    Turbo
    Throttle fault
    Wrong parts fitted


    HELP!!!

    It's a 2.0 dti Andrew, am I right in thinking that is the hose that runs up to the turbo from underneath?

    Thinking about it, they've had the airbox apart today to replace the filter, and it is a similar feeling to the B one I had that had a meter fail on it, so with any luck thats all it is, still means another trip to the garage though.


    Plot thickens, on my invoice it lists a Particle Filter along with 3 other filters, maybe it's just the pollen one, one thing I have noticed though is the derv filter, I'm assuming this should be new, but the housing doesn't look like it's been touched, always get residue spillage when changing these, but there's none or any clean up evidence either, I guess the morale is D.I.Y if you want it done properly.

    if your oil filter is anything like mine then it's only the filter itself that is changed, the plastic housing is reused

    Oil one has residue on it H, I know thats been done, it's the fuel one that looks like it's not been touched, should at the very least drain it, but again unless they've used a cup to catch it there's no spills on the gearbox casing.

    The kiddy I'm thinking of is the one, as you look at it, is the chubby fella on the right hand side that disappears under the engine cover. Easily checked though, just give it a sharp tug away from where it's going, if it moves, it's loose.
