Turbo / Erv - Problems
I had my car in a few weeks ago after changing down a gear to overtake and the turbo just cut out and the engine symbol came on. i took it to my dealer and they said it needed a replacement ERV in the exhaust??!!
Since getting it back turbo is still cutting out on me and is also coming in later in the rev range (closer to 2,800 - 3,000rpm) and only part ‘boost’ about 1.0 - 1.2). Also cruising, especially in 2nd gear, at around 2,000 rpm it is jumping / kangarooing. When the turbo has no boost i simply stop the car, turn it off and back on again and it works!?!?!?
i think before the erv replacement the turbo was coming in around 2,000rpm and was at a boost of at least 1.2 - 1.4 all the time, is this correct?
has anyone else had this issue?
By the way i love my Alfa, the first one i have had and would not change it for the world.
