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.

I have isuzu bighorn '92 model automatic,there is a leaking oil under the intercooler turbo...is this normal?thanks.


Leaking of any fluid is not normal. The only time any fluid should expel from the car is if you have overfilled something. Your turbo could need replacing, you could have a hole in the intercooler. Have you noticed any lack of performance or extra smoke...

My daughter has a 2003 Pontiac Grand Prix, WHEN SHE IS DRIVING IT BOGGS OUT WHEN SHE EXCELERATS Can, she has had the front sensor changed and it is still the same way. could you help or suggest...


The most common reasons for that situation to occur are as follows;

1. The fuel filter is plugged up or the fuel pump is malfunctioning.

2. The air filter is plugged up and is limiting the air flow to the MAF sensor. (Mass Air Flow)

3. The MAF sensor is faulty.

4. There is an air or vacuum leak in the air induction system.
(Check the air induction system and be certain that there are no air or vacuum leaks, especially between the MAF and the throttle body, and that all of the hose clamps are tight on the air induction boot between the MAF and the throttle body)

Any one of these can cause that to happen and any un-metered air getting past the MAF will result in poor engine performance.

No power noisy engine smokey exhaust


Clean air filter, fuel filter and turbo filter. Check the inlet and outlet manifolds incl. EGR valve and Turbo gate. If there is particle filter then may be it is clogged. If its a diesel then open the injectors and clean it.

It is your fuel pump it has to put out at least 30psi at the fuel rail. Regardless of how much gas you think its getting its not enough. Replace the fuel pump.

WHISTLING BELOW TURBO


Its surely not turbo, its is somewhere a hole or leak in turbo air filter housing or air inlet pipe that is making noises when turbo sucks air. check the air pipes wheather they are fitted correctly. Take a keen look at air hose and close any hole with silver tape check the hose is fitted correctly in Turbo air filter housing (if not then it makes whistling noise when air is being sucked by turbo) . Clean all air filters and then give it a go.

Accelerator problems


Hi,

If you have the turbo charged version, this issue refers to the "turbo dead zone" between 3500-4000 RPM. This refers to the no acceleration between these two RPMs and is caused by the time difference between the time the second turbo kicks in after the first turbo has activated. If you are referring to acceleration loss/delay below 3500 RPM, the issue is "turbo lag" which pertains to the delay in time between the stepping on the gas pedal and the 1st turbo activating.

In some other instances including non-turbo versions, the problem may be due to air leak in the intake manifold and the air cleaner. In the turbo versions, it would include the in/out junction of the blower including the clamps.

Hope this be of initial help/idea. Pls post back how things turned up or should you need additional information.

Good luck and kind regards.

Thank you for using FixYa.

Remove the hose at the intake on the turbo and see that it turns freely with no sideways movement. If that checks out ok, then see that the air filter is clean. At the air filter also check the intake is free of any debre. Most times if a turbo is not working propperly oil will leak causing the car to smoke. Frankster016
