95632,no repair work has been carried out
no previous symptons or problems,the engine warning light did not come on just the loss of power
there are several things that can be the issue
first thin before the details if you turn off the car and restart does the power come back?
yes,but then it comes back after few minutes of driving
i will start with the common issues with boost issues and power reduction1st common issue is that the turbo vane actuator /vanes stick and then if it sees an overboost then the reduced power comes along and you limp to the side of the road (very common) and requires a turbo replacement assy w/ new actuator
second is the vac hoses (common) but you have an overboost condition code vac hoses broken would cause underboost while driving at startup so this will be eliminated
3rd the n75 valve (turbo boost controller) solenoid can be sticking (very limited cases of failure) but it is possible
so it looks like i may need a turbo?
due to the odometer and age leads me to a turbo replacement
while replacement recommend also to remove the intake manifold and have the carbon cleaned as best as possible to prolong the new turbo's life
i know it is not the good news you want to hear because of an expensive repair!
not the best as i only had it for 2 months,thanks for the assist
sure just remember the positived feedback !! thanks
