Question about 1999 Ford Escort
I have a sweet 1.8 td escort. with only 60,000 miles.
the turbo is not kicking in and the r.p.m will not go over 4,500.
whats wrong with the turbo, and how can it be fixed
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
