My X5 30l turbo recently had the turbo replaced. since then the car has no power on start up. If i idle t for a few minutes it is fine and performs fantastic. Please help

check for a bad coolant temp sensor. Also a dirty air filter will affect turbo spool up (turbine speed). A clean air filter is critical to turbo performance.

Fault codes I have on my bmw x5 2003 is p3505 p1260 p09f6 what do I need to fix them

P1260 is pre supply pressure monitoring, rate reduction due to low-pre-supply pressure. That is, fuel related. However, this normally triggers limp mode (<30mph/<2000RPM). Not uncommon on the X5. I would start with replacing fuel filter before delving into the lift pump/fuel delivery unit, in tank pump etc. Clear fault codes, run the car again then see what happens again - same fault codes?...then its delivery fuel pressure related. Should be 3.9bar at idle and not drop below 3.5bar.

Hi my Saab 2001 93 2.0 turbo convertible has lost power get into limp home mode I reset it every few weeks codes come up p1105 p1260 p1251 p 1264 what do u think is wrong ?

code p1105 refers to manifold absolute pressure(MAP) sensor, TC system-leak detected. causes ---intake leak, ---hoses There are to references to p1105 The second response is still map sensor but the causes are---TC system--mechanical fault--air leak between throttle body-TC,map sensor---TC system--exhaust blockage
code p1260 refers to throttle return spring--weak spring force. causes ---mechanical fault,--,throttle control unit
code p1264 refers to throttle valve opening-accelerator released causes ---throttle control unit---mechanical fault

Problem with the Subaru Outback 2008 diesel Low power at low RPM before turbo starts working. Difficult to drive the car on mountain roads where you have to shift from third to second gear, often the...

the turbo is a variable vane type
that means that there are vanes in the exhaust housing that redirects the exhaust gas flow onto the turbine blades to get extra boost at low rpms
those vanes are controlled by an actuator and vacuum hose from a sensor
the hoses get brittle from the heat and fails , the vanes can rust up and seize or the actuator doesn't get the message from the sensor
run the fault codes first , then take it to an accredited turbo professional shop for a proper diagnosis

P1260 code. No idle/start. Funny thing is, I can depress the gas pedal and the car will start and run at 750-1000 RPM. When I release the pedal the car dies. Thought that this issue might be the TPS,...

P1260 it is in the throttle body.Make sure that it is clean and functioning, then make sure the wiring is good at the connector with no breaks or corrosion.The codes have to be erased by disconnectiing the battery for awhile or with scanner BEFORE plugging the throttle body wiring back in or it will go back into limpmode.Let me know if it helps

Is the theft light flashing while your trying to start it? Try a different key,maybe the theft unit in the key got damaged. Has to be one that came with the car. Also if someone has a code scanner, you will see a code like p1260 theft detected if it can read your key.

I would start with the TPS, and if it doesn't solve it then the AFM would be the problem.
