So on the way home tonight on the motorway i lost boost.
Didnt hear anything at the time as i had some music and the aircon on full. But when i went to pull out round someone there was just no power there.
Turned off music and aircon and all i can hear is a rattle. A little play about with the throttle and it only rattles when the the turbo should be kicking in. All that happenes is that the rattle and the mpg dial shoots up.
When i turned the car off it made a noise as if the turbo was slowing down but rattling with a grinding type noise.
There was no smoke at all which is making me question if the turbo has actually died. Reading a few threads people are saying to others that i could just be a pipe. But its the rattling that is making me think otherwise.
Any ideas what i could do to find out? Dont have loads of tools so stripping it down really isnt an option much.
