Is It All Going Wrong....
Well I've had the 159 2.4 Q4 for a 11 days now. The trip home was fantastic, 220 miles and it's seen little use since then as I've been stuck in the office. It's done 275 miles since I got it, 70,700 in total now.
Today I needed to use it to come to work, it's only 8 miles and the first 7 were just great. Then no power, boost gauge is hardly moving and there was a slight burning (oil?) smell when I got out of the car.
Checked it at lunchtime and no ominous puddles anywhere!
The OBD2 scanner is at home, haven't used it yet (need to read the manual that came with it) but I'm reluctant to drive the car again in it's current state.
Can anyone offer any guidance this afternoon before I call the AA tonight?
