Loss of power, air leaking and smell of fumes. I think my GT is sick!
So ive come of a messy stag week to find on my return when driving to work that my GT is not quite right any more. The car is severly underpowered seems as if nothing is getting to the turbo, but also as i accelerate i can hear a sound of air which gets louder as the revs go up (almost sounds like the fan on full blast) and on top of that a distinct smell of fumes inside and outside of the car when it starts up and i start driving.
I took it in to my local garage who after a day of having it called to say it was the glow plugs, i was a bit skeptical and said i didnt think it could be but they were adamant and seeing ive had the 'glow plug error' for a good while i thought hmmm maybe.
But no, 220 quid worth of glow plugs and labour later ive collected my car and its no different at all! Any one got an idea of what it sounds like it could be, seems im gonna have to go back to the garage and tell them to sort their lives out!
