FOCA - any opinion is greatly appreciated, I havent a clue on these things.
the over-revving could be part of it - Halfords Autocentre have had the vehicle in recently due to them being the warrenty preferrd repairer when i thought the issues i was having could be warrenty issues. they replaced the DPF on it but the original fault was still there, they were out in it for 2 hours and i can honestly say it went in with half a tank of fuel (About 300 miles) and it came back with 60 miles left. he said he has been out in it for hours and couldnt make it replay the fault i had been experiencing. but did say it had been driven at high revs - it was only after this point that the turbo started making a noise - before that there hadnt been any hint of a turbo issue. so it could all tie in back to them saying the DPF needed replacing - carbon blocking, over revving etc.
never mind.......empty savings account here i come !.....
