    Car had to be taken back last night on a flat bed truck.

    The Problem: Had absolutely no power and turbo surge. Could not rev past 4000rpm and max spped was 60mph.

    Anyone got any ideas. Goes into dealer today. It was with them just 2 days earlier due to a whining noise which was still there when I got the car back. Any ideas?

    Cheers

    whining noise like a supercharger?

    could and probably a turbo hose blown off.

    or if its running like a old subaru lumpy and erratic... coils

    or a major MAF failure?
