Hi guys, becoming quite a regular on here, the joys of Alfa owner ship!! haha
Well the other day my car lost power, would still drive, but seems no turbo, though you can hear it winding up when I rev the engine, it all happened when I was going for a land speed record using some new fangled App on me phone.
After some helpful advice I have just had the under tray off and checked the lower turbo pipe, but it seems fine, and then checked the top pipe just incase. I was really hoping it was going to be that simple but seems not!
Has anyone got any other ideas, like I say, the car will drive, just very very very sluggish, top speed about 60 in about 3 mins, and I ain't exaggerating!! There has always been a bit of white smoke coming out of the exhaust when I accelerate after just setting off but this always died down and i put it down to the car being a diesel. One other thing I noted was the presence of oil inside the hoses, is this a clue??
I know the previous chap that offered advice suggested the EGR, but not quite sure where that is or how to get to it to check it.
Thanks for taking the time to read this, and if we manage to come up with a solution I will do a guide for it, hopefully then help some others out in a similar situation.
