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
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.
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 :(
seems like the turbo gauge is not accurate...while I have power I have seen the indicator get into the 'red'
Driving down the highway, lost power pulled over called tow truck had to replace turbo.
Oil looks like chocolate milk.
Turbo bearing wore out and caused a complete failure. Had to replace turbo.
Still have the problem losing power
