Check your waste gate and make sure its not dumping into exhaust instead of sending into intake. waste gate is controlled by vaccum so if it is not functioning check to make sure it isnt leaking.

Turbo / Boost Issues


Sounds like a faulty boost pressure sensor or waste gate. I would check the waste gate first. Sounds like it is opening to soon and letting the boost out, than regaining again.

Turbo not kicking in like it should cant find no leaking pipe and turbo seems to be working fine


In general the possible causes could be:
- Boost pressure sensor harness is open or shorted
- Boost pressure sensor circuit poor electrical connection
- Faulty boost pressure sensor
- Faulty Turbo/Super Charger
- Engine over temperature.
- Ignition misfire exceeds the calibrated threshold.
- Faulty Knock sensor (KS)

I would doubt its the turbo as you said it seems to be working just fine (unless the wastegate is stuck open/wastegate seal is cracked). Also if the ignition misfire exceeds the claibrated threshold then I would think you'd hear that in the engine running normally. I would say locate the sensor and replace it?

Hope this helps

Turbo cuts out under normal driving


That sounds like turbo overboost, ECU cutting the boost off. when you try and boost again feels like your hitting a brickwall, or when it happends feels like your hitting a brick wall...turning the car off resolves this.

Reset your ecu, disconnect the battery for 30seconds - 1minute.

Engine management light came on after cold start speeding and car feels like it is spluttring also smell some burning like clutch


You more than likely have a turbo boost hose leak or vaccum leak, and the burning smell will be the catalyst getting hot from unburned fuel..The car will run very rich with a boost leak.

Your problem with the APC system. Any perceived fault and you only get base boost. The most likely fault is the boost pressure sensor located under the dash on the left-hand side. when it is bad you often hear the APC solenoid valve clicking at idle.

Check out all your air hoses and clamps and check the turbo itself to make sure it spins freely. (Engine not running)
