Okay for a couple hundred kms and engine light came on then the car would stop at higher speed and lock up.

Hello and welcome to JustAnswer!I see that you've having some issues with your Bentley but I'm unsure exactly what your question was.Can you describe the symptoms? Is it just running out of power or the engine going into limp in?Do you know what fault codes are setting?
Customer: replied 6 months ago.
It just dies and completely locks up. The mechanic dropped the engine and replaced the wastegate actuator pipe. It had pinhole leak. Didn't fix it. Now removed the engine and claims wastegate problem in the turbo. The engine is now out so no need to answer re repairing without removing engine

The engine simply stops. Have to restart
Expert:  sprinkles08 replied 6 months ago.
None of the issues mentioned would cause the engine to die. Are any fault codes setting when the problem happens?
Customer: replied 6 months ago.
I don't think you have the knowledge to help me. We can read codes ourselves. I want the opinion of an experienced Bentley mechanic . You are saying the wastegate problems won't stall a car
