No boost, no power, hunting, black smoke
As you know I had the timing belt done a few weeks ago, and it ran much better... And it was nice being in the Alfa
It's done a few thousand miles since then...heathrow and back to Leicester. However last few days it's been dropping boost, low boost anyway like from one notch on the scale. But it's been ok if you put the boot in, it's done this before in the summer.
Anyway going along, went over a small bump and lost all boost no power putting my foot down it sounded like a tractor, very deep boom to the exhaust note.
Starts, idles but no power no boost...any thoughts? Wasn't overheating, if I didn't know better id say a pipe has popped off.
All advice greatly received.
