car starts fine acceleration is very slow very sluggish but seems to be gaming at a very slow pace the turbo indicator I was told is not resetting were moving like it should
Turbo failure was said to be due to an oil leak. Hard shifting/no power when i'd hit the gas. Replaced and haven't had a problem with it since...have a whole host of other issues though :(

While driving my car loss power. Acceleration went from normal to a shaky slow. Car acted like it wanted to cut off. Thankfully i was close to home and was able to prk it up. Haven't had a chance to look into it yet.
