    Default Vacuum Pipes on Diesel engines

    wonder if anyone has had or having the same problem, i keep havin problems with the vacuum pumps for the turbo keep going or having a hole in it.

    which does not let me go above 2500 revs and going into limp mode!

    is this a common fault? my car has done 80k now and i have replaced two pipes replaced but i dont know which one it is now!

    took it down the garage and they said they'll fill the system with disco smoke and find the pump which is letting the pressure out!

    Yep mate happened to mine a few times, luck enough my mate used to work for vauxhall and sorted it im 2 mins. You just got to look at each end of the pipes first as they split very easly tbh.

    Are you sure you mean vacuum pipes and not boost pipes? I know that the vacuum pipes sometimes go but not that often
