Hi Guys!
Just bought a Mondy Mk2 TD ghia estate. The car is fine except it feels like the turbo isn't boosting. Theres no smoke at all and no misfiring, just no power. A common easy fixable problem?
Cheers
Jim

sounds like a siezed turbo bearing,the turbo proberly isnt spinning at all,hence no power no smoke,remove the turbo induction pipe and see if you can turn the turbine....hope this helps, turbos can be bought from most breakers for 30.....

if your turbo's not seized see if you can borrow a boost gauge see if your actually getting boost. could be a few things, air leak on vacuum pipe, intercooler leaking, all will lose boost pressure.

Hi again,
I've pulled the car apart today to investigate the problem. The intercooler and its pipework are fine, the pipe from the turbo to the pump is fine, the one from the turbo to the wastegate actuator is fine, and the turbo turns quite easily by hand. However it only turns very slowly on tickover, plus on hard revving although there seems to be quite a draught coming out of it, theres no pressure, you can easily stop the airflow with the palm of your hand. The other thing is its very oily indeed. I suspect that its had it, but I suppose the wastegate could be stuck open? The EGR doesn't appear to be opperating either, so if thats stuck open will that cause the same symptoms?
Cheers
Jim

All fixed! the wastegate actuator arm had fallen off. Had to remove the manifold to get it though. Still a bit worried about the oil, but we'll see what happens.
