Is my TURBO Dead....?
Alfa 2.4 jtd 20v 54 plate car....
I have a small issue where the car judders slightly when driving the car on a steady throttle.
When I accelerate away and the turbo is under boost, it works fine, doesn't pull like a train, but it pulls.
I then change gear and you hear the waste gate dump the pressure ready to boost again.
Once speed is reached (approx 40mph) and I am generally driving the car, it sounds as if the wast gate is opening and closing on the turbo...
the car jolts a little and gains / looses power. Giving it a little throttle puts the turbo back into boost and the issue goes away.
Has anyone ever had this issue?
Will I need a new turbo, or is there a hose somewhere I need to replace...?
