as some of you are aware there has been an issue with the cars performance for nearly a year now. So many things have been changed that i wont even bore you with.
Yesterday after reading some threads with regards to checking to see if the actuator rod moves when the car is started, as it could be my source of problems if it doesnt move. Well it moves the way it should, moves out when started and then a few secs later it moves back towards the turbo - so all ok there. Unplugged the MAF again and still no luck, just a bit more smokey and if the AC is on then the black smoke that pours out is embarassing.
The power problem comes when 3000rpms are reached, hesitates, then gets a bit of power back but its not the way it should be. A few days ago on the autobahn getting to 100mph was a bit of a struggle and anything above that would take me the length of Germany to get to its top speed
So any ideas?
Just to mention what has been changed:
Turbo Actuator Solenoid and pipes
Hose from Intercooler to engine
New filters (still havent fitted the air filter though)
Serviced about 10k ago
Belts done about 5k ago
Apart from the Air filter not changed yet, the only thing left is the turbo to intercooler pipe. If it helps the car is fairly smokey (black like coal)
