    Default problem with engine

    Car went back into garage today and they told me that there is a problem on the car causing reduced power from car recognising a fualt. Problem is a Turbo overboosting that is taking place when accelerating but they dont know what is causing it. He mentioned that there were 2 ways to get to the bottom of the cause:

    1) using a Cambus system??? which they dont have which can test solenoids/sensors on computer system - only available from main dealers (expensive)

    2) stripping engine down further to check for mechanical faults from faulty 'air valves'

    Any experience or ideas on what I should do next?
