    having a quick scout around it seems to be a common problem in which once you cut the engine out, and start up again the car seems to be ok?
    this is the same as what was happening to me?

    reading on the N75 valve seems to pop up a lot?

    variable vane turbos seems to pop up a lot?

    however innotec have some sort of turbo cleaner that people say works a treat? how does this work?

    I had an over boost problem and this was mentioned to me that could be the cause, but in my case turned out to be the turbo, different from you. Sold the car now

    its wierd regarding from what the AA guy sed.. Suspected Turbo Actuator Valve..
    i doubt its the turbo because theres no smoke, my dads got the skoda octavia 1.9TDI PD Engine same as me, when his turbo went all you could see was a cloud of smoke.
    after searching up it could be a number of things
    im gettin it checked out from a diesel specialist tmo.
    hopefully fingers crossed it wnt be the turbo and hopefully nothing major

    When my turbo went, I got no smoke. Just a whining that progressively got louder! Only I heard it at first, on each one that went lol, thought I was going mad!!! Fingers crossed for you that its something simple.

    again i doubt its the turbo, as once it starts juddering and not picking up speed correctly turn off the engine and turn it back on it seems fine?
    ive read that the car automatically goes into limp mode in order to refrain any engine damage or summit.
    its confusing me it cud be soo many things?
    cars are jus expenses expenses expenses

    regarding the turbo? how much are you looking for labour and parts?
