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.
Turbo bearing wore out and caused a complete failure. Had to replace turbo.
Oil looks like chocolate milk.
Still have the problem losing power
