Turbo Lack of Power
Recently been experiencing issues with my boost. the turbo will kick in with no problems but sometimes normally in 2nd or 3rd it will kick in around 2k rev boost up to 3-4 K then drops back down to 2.5k with no increase in power. In the high gears 5 or 6 there never seems to be any boost.
When using the cruise control to speed up if the turbo kicks in once the boost drops out it kicks the car out of cruise.
This has been happing for a couple of months and finally having a chance to service the car yesterday i asked the mechanic to check out the lack of power and he told me the turbo is losing pressure and is failing but i choose not to believe this as there seems to be no other signs of a turbo failure.
On another note i only get smoke when i accelerate hard and the boost kicks in but not always the case.
