Help required, no turbo power 147 JTD
Hello, So I start my beloved car yesterday to the notice of a motor control system failure. this has happened before with a bad connection so didnt panic and was able to start up and drive.
I noticed the turbo doesn't seem to be providing power when getting to the 2k rpm area as usual,
after reading lots of posts on here I assume it is a turbo hose or the egr perhaps.
my symptoms are that it feels that the turbo isnt providing power, so the whole rev range feels flat in comparison. on a previous motorway journey the car was dumping black smoke under heavy acceleration but I think this has been happening for a while. no other symptoms noticed.
am I right in thinking turbo hose would be the first place to start or something more serious?
car is 95k miles
any help appreciated
