156 jtd 2.4 10v 2001 power loss!


I just bought Oily's 156 jtd 10v. As he stated in the ad it lacks power. It feels like the turbo isnt boosting. The egr has been deleted. Any ideas what to test? I'd rather investigate than just start swapping in new parts. All main hoses are dry showing no signs of a leak I.e no black wet stuff! Any help much appreaciated.

hi, my 1.9 has the same issue, and similarly no obvious leaks or blockages, which leads me to the turbo. The valve on the radiator that helps control the turbo is functioning correctly, so must be the turbo itself. So I am taking it off to see if it still spins or whether it is blocked up internally.

There is a thread on here detailing the main things to check, but sounds like you may be in a similar position.
