    Loss of power

    Just noticed my car does not seem to have as much power recently

    Almost as if the turbo wasn't kicking in

    How can I tell what's wrong ?

    Could also be a split boost hose.

    Dermot,

    What model car do you have?
    Petrol or Diesel.

    If it is a Diesel then it could be the MAF sensor. Mine went flat at 3000 RPM. Replaced the sensor and now ok.

    Re: Loss of power

    Hi, mate did a diag for me and I got the following errors

    16500 Engine Coolant Temp. Sensor (G62): Implausible Signal
    P0116 35-10 Intermittent

    and

    16518 Oxygen (Lambda) Sensor B1 S1:No Activity
    P0134 35-10 Intermittent

    Could the 16518 be affecting the cut in of the turbo ?

    Anyone ?

    Thanks Dermot

    Hi guys, finally got it sorted

    It ties back to the oil pressure warning I was getting

    I had changed the sensor and the warnings stopped but about 3 weeks after the power loss the warnings started again

    Left it in to be fixed. The oil sieve at the bottom of the sump had clogged

    This starved the turbo of oil and the shaft in the turbo broke

    Everything fixed again, great to have her back
