Have just installed a recon turbo on my 1.6 tdci along with new oil pipes, oil pickup and a sump clean out (which wasn't that bad, car now done 93k).
Made sure oil was getting thru to the new turbo, after reconnecting started her up and idled for about 20 mins while I checked for leaks etc.
The initial run out for a couple miles seemed ok although I was very light footed. Took it out for a longer run today (15 miles each way) and it started to get very sluggish, no power thru the revs, very gutless. It felt strangled but not juddery in any way. Have no lights on the dash, no strange noises etc.
Am worried about driving anymore as I dont want the new turbo to go. Had a prev one go 2k ago after a garage put a second hand one on.
Any ideas, it does feel very slow.
Would a blocked dpf show on the dash somewhere if it was that?
Took the air filter off just now, there is a small amount of oil on that side of the turbo plus a bit in the air pipe to the filter, I did clean all this out during the work.
Have noticed injector 3 has black hard stuff around it, would this cause this kind of power loss?
Thanks in advance.
