Hi i have a bmw 320d touring 06 plate. While driving it the turbo stopped working. I shut off the engine and turned back on then it was working ok for a few miles now the turbo isnt kicking in until the revs hit 3,000 rpm or above but when it hits that it seems to be working fine, there is no smoke either, do you have any idea what this could be? Many thanks dan.
I will provide an honest answer. I trust this will be appreciated. Please remember that a low rating PUNISHES me for being honest and that I receive nothing for my time until a positive rating is clicked.
Most likely it is simply a failing turbo... It will need to be replaced
Please let me know if you have further questions. Please do not forget to click a positive rating as this is the only way I receive credit for my answer, thank you. Best wishes with your vehicle.
