Alfa gt 1.9 jtdm cloverleaf
Hi everyone,just to say this forum has been fantastic in helping me cure numerous problems I have had since I bought the car for my wife around 6 months back so thanks??
Think it's terminal this time though can't really describe it 'I'm no wordsmith ' or mechanic lol
Could hear a whine from the turbo for a couple of days in the morning but now ?No boost
Sounds like there is a bucket of spanners under the bonnet when under any type of acceleration a friend told me to check for a blown hose but I don't know where to begin , could it be that simple ? Any replies are greatly appreciated

As already suggested try asking in the Tech Lounge Alfa Romeo Meets & Events - Alfa Romeo Forum for help.

Thanks for the replies guys , quick update I have just this morning removed the bottom engine cover ( snapped one of the torq screws ) anyway finally had a proper look at the thing and low and behold there's a 2" slit in the lower turbo hose ?Just on the bay just now to squire new silicon one well actually a pair as May as well do them both ??
Then to the next problem which is the noisy fan that comes on even when cold , then the fact the engine sounds like an old taxi lol , then it's the non working parking sensors , the cigar lighters not working and probably more?
If this car wasn't one of the prettiest things I've ever owned I'd have set about it with s sledge hammer by now ! But god it's great lol
