Jtd loss of power again
Where do i start
My 1.9 jtd 16v has been blowing out clouds of black smoke when it's cold eg first thing in the morning,i also thought it didn;t want to rev as good as it used to.
It was remapped 3 years ago and would rev to 4500rpm quite easily,the egr is blanked off
It's blown turbo hoses 3 times in the past so i reckon i can rule out a split hose cause the power was still there but it would only rev to maybe 3500rpm and it now has silicon hoses it's also had the hoses of the turbo solenoid replaced about a year ago as they were split.
So today i thought i'd have a look for anything obvious,I stripped all the hoses off just to check but everthings ok but i noticed quite a lot of oil sitting in the intercooler,i know turbo seals seep a bit but is this normal.i also thought the intake was quite gungy again i believe this is reasonably normal,i checked for movement on the turbo but there was very little if any but when i spun the turbine with my fingers it seemed stiffish is this normal .
Then i thought maf,big mistake
After reading a few posts on cleaning it i thought give it a try with some carb cleaner.
Now i have no power at all(no smoke either)if i unplug it it's slightly better but only slightly,the turbo still doesn't feel like it's getting on boost at all,could all this be related to the maf as i'm not to keen on paying the best part of £100 only for there to be no change(her indoors would not be impressed).
Any thoughts and advice would be greatly appreciated.
