Have checked bottom hoses, big hose can be moved about a bit from both ends. I am waiting for a friend to check the rest. will advise.
Should you be able to move this hose (the big one with part metal part rubber hose)?
Have checked for leaks, no leaks found. Cleaned top part of hose , not the intercooler end (the engine end of it with the metal end). Still a bit loose.
Drove car, turbo do not kick in at all on any gear. Had a bit of white smoke could be due to cold then no smoke at all.
Engine sounds normal but no power on the gears and have difficulty going over 2000 revs.
Have checked all pipes/hoses no leaks. Had to take car to garage, confirmed my findings. Garage thinks that it may be the cat converter having a blockage which is causing the problem. Any chance of this?
Thank you for your help. Hand to get a replacement turbo as the wastegate was all knackered and blocked.
