Just my dads e61 has lost all power and whistles virtually all the time and gets louder under load.
Not been able to do much yet but can feel exhaust fumes and soot being chucked out around the turbo area. The turbo actuator moves up and down when you first turn the car on but not when revved will it not move without sensing the load off the turbo?
With it chucking air out a hose must of split or be off but everything looks to be ok and there was quite a lot of exhaust gas coming out.
Are the exhuast manifolds prone to cracking on the n47d20a engines?
He wants to sell the car in the next couple of months so hoping its a cheap fix!
Anyone got any ideas on what to look at?
Thanks in advance
