split turbo hose?
Ok chaps need a second opinion, i'm 99% sure the problem is the hose but you may be able confirm this or to suggest other possible reasons.
The car is a 147 1.9 JTDm 06 reg.
Right the symptoms:
Started with a gradual decrease in fuel consumption accompanied with a progressive increase in turbo whistle, became a whoosh type noise on pressing the accelerator thengoes after lifting.
Yesterday lost more power and got loads of black smoke on acceleration.
By last evening was running "lumpy" if revs about 2000 on a deas throttle and getting very poor acceleration and poor consuption.
The whooshing noise has now gone so i assume the split is noe too big to create the noise
Low down >1500 revs engine seems normal.
How quickly do i need this fixing and will it screw up the DPF rapidly i.e. between now and getting to the garage later this week.
Many thanks in advance
