You could have a blocked catalytic converter. When engine is at operating temp, if the pipes glow red in the vicinity of the converter (enough to get the floor hot), it's critical to replace the catalytic converter to restore power and prevent engine damage.

the PCM may see the boost too low for load and RPM.
so, that can be lots of things, besides a bad turbo cant spool.
even a stuck open waste gate.

I have an A5 3.0TDI which has a flat spot when


Can you describe what you mean by "flat spot"? Do you mean that there is par of the rev range where there seems to be little power? Turbo engines tend to produce bursts of power when the turbo spools up. Does the "flat spot" happen at low revs? If so, your turbo isn't spooled up yet. As you accelerate and it fires up you feel a rush of power. just a guess, provide more details and we'll try to help

Grommett fell down intercooler charge-pipe on my 03 PT Cruiser. if I disconnect upper charge pipe and rev engine/spool up turbo will it blow grommett out or do I have to disconect the whole thing to locate...


If it was my car I would be tearing it down because I couldn't afford to buy a new turbo. Maybe it will come out if you spool up the turbo but if it doesn't there will be a new turbo in your future. Hope this helps.

Hi, I have a 2001 ford f250 diesel. Recently I`ve lost fuel ecomomy (600 km/tank to 400km/tank),and also lost power. The turbo sound has changed and is not as quick to spool. At normal driving turbo...


I had one of our work trucks do something similar. It turned out to be the tube that goes to the charged air cooler was split. This is a large plastic tube that carries the pressurized air from the turbo to the chraged air cooler (it's in front of the radiator) then back to the engine.
Start the engine and have some one hold it at a fast idle and feel around for an air leak on those tubes. Be careful not get your hands in the belt or fan.

Turbo spooling too high


Sounds like the gate valve is stuck. This valve dumps excess pressure when the turbo makes it.

Engine power loss


Can you hear the turbo spooling up? If yes do you hear an air noise... could a number of things from bad turbo, air to air leaking or its piping, or something simple like a clogged fuel or air filter.
