156 JTD lack of power after 2 new turbo pipes fitted
After experiencing a few splits in my upper and lower turbo pipes over the last few months, I had them replaced today. The car drove the 1/2 mile home from the workshop fine.
Driving approx 20 miles to work tonight I was still experiencing the loss of power that I had with the knackered hoses but without the wooshing/whistling turbo noise. The engine was really struggling to rev and I found myself having to depress the clutch and keep pumping the accelerator to get the revs up.
Could I have caused any other damage by driving the car for a couple of days with a split in the lower hose?
Any ideas what could be causing this please?
