Customer Question

I have a BMW 530 SE Auto diesel 04 plate. I have completely lost power. It will not go over 30 mph. No fault indicators have come up and emissions seem normal. Also the rev counter jumps up and down but will not go over 3000 rpm. This fault is getting progressively worse. Can you please help. Many thanks. Pete.

Most likely its a bad turbo. Any decent bmw or diesel specialist garage can verify and make the required repairs.
