So looking at the forum half the posts are about this... :| Today after work i jumped in my car for the short journey home i seemed to have no power. usually when i start driving when i put my food down there is 1 1/2 seconds and then BOOM the turbo i guess kicks in and i get some power. Before i panic (already have) about the cost what steps can i take myself to diagnose that this is really a dead turbo and nothing else simple like a loose pipe ? I have checked the engine codes and there are no errors (apart form my usual roof ones). There are no error lights on the dash. From what i can see the turbo seems to be hidden behind the front bumper and the radiator, is this correct?
