HELP - Loss of Power
As this forum has helped me previously, again it will be my first call!
My GT 1.9JTD has developed a severe loss of power problem. At first I thought it was when running cold, but for 40 miles I was getting no real power and really struggling on hills. Trying to push acceleration was as though no turbo boost, and huge cloud of smoke in the mirror. I could get power by getting down gears and the revs up. Felt like sudden turbo kicking in once revs reached 2500ish.
I had a similar - trailing smoke and sluggish power (albeit not as bad) a while ago, but that was with a whistling sound as well. This BB pointed this out to be a probable turbo hose problem, and that diagnosis was spot on. Thought it might be the same, due to the smoke, but feels like missing power alot worse this time and no whistling noises.
Dont know why, but after 40 miles, the problem cleared - not fully but only marginally there in the background. Interesting to see how it is 2moro. Should also add, no Engine Management warnings
So all you experts...any suggestions what this might be? Many thanks!
