I could really use some ideas being thrown about over this one.
Took the car out today on a journey to visit friends. On the way, and after coming off of a roundabout onto a dual carriageway, I floored the throttle and got to about 3.5K when it felt like someone had turned the power off!
Simply put - I had no power at all for acceleration, in any gear and at any revs.
If I can explain better - I'll try; you know if you coast in a diesel, you can change up through the box and not accelerate, like you were in a slow moving queue of traffic and was just letting your car pull itself along? Well, this is how mine felt.
It felt like no turbo - no boost, but more than that, less power than an NI diesel too!
It was as much as I could do to get up inclines.
The car starts fine - idles beautifully too. Revs VRY slowly and there is no power in any gear at any revs. It does rev through to the limiter though, with no missing or lumpiness.
I had no codes thrown up - nothing to identify with.
Had to call the RAC out, who, to be fair, checked the EGR amongst other things. He 'thinks' that the turbo is definitely working as there seemed to be evidence to say-so (I'm in NO WAY mech-minded, I should add) but felt that I should not drive it further and therefore towed me back to my local garage, outside which the bella is now sitting.
I have thought along the lines of hoses, maybe filter (I wish) but after searching here before posting I couldn't see anything with the exact symptoms I had, so... any ideas or shall I just have a few more beers tonight and forget it and worry about it tomorrow?
