Cry Like A Baby Stuttering acceleration, noise adn smoke. Help

Posted a request for info a couple of weeks ago on this ... had a bit more than usual smoke from the exhaust and the accelaration was very uneven. No warning messages on the dash. Left it in to a garage -- spent over 500 on a full service and was told there are no faults showing and all is normal. But I've been driving the car for over a year and I know it is not running as well as it did. That's why I took it into the garage!

You put your foot down, there's a terrible hissing/whoosing noise, you get a bit of a boost but it stutters. When the garage took it for a drive they said there was plenty of acceleration. But that's not what I'm getting and I know there is something wrong.

Any ideas would be grateful,

I had a problem similar to this, except I got an engine warning light come up. There was a whooshing noise and lost loads of acceleration. Turned out it was a turbo hose (I think it was the one between the intercooler and the turbo). Symptoms sound similar, yours may just be a smaller hole. Maybe worth a look.

Good luck
