I put the car into the garage to get a breather pipe replaced. When they replaced the pipe and smoke tested it, they discovered to turbo itself was loose, they tightened that up but still I'm not feeling the whoomph effect I had before this problem.
The turbo used to kick in from 2000 Rpm and the car went like a scalded cat. Now it just limps its way up through the rev range. The garage said the turbo appears to have had a new valve installed (forgot the actual name) recently but can't explain the loss of power.
The turbo is still spinning up but it's not delivering the power expected. There's no leaks, any ideas?
Also the ESP light is coming on and VCDS is showing a faulty lateralG sensor. Any ideas how to fix this?
Im putting the car in next month for a full service and get all the faults fixed on it while it's in.
Also, nearly forgot, when I put the foot down and get a tiny bit of boost, the car stutters at 4.5k RPM and just goes kinda meh!
Hopefully some of yous can lend some suggestions to the above problems. I love driving this car but these niggly faults are starting to put me off!
