I appear to have a problem with either my turbo or the EGR valve. If I give it some welly the engine revs up to 3000 rpm then goes flat i.e. limp home mode. Switching it off an back on seems to fix it for a short while. I tried putting some Forte cleaner in the tank but to no avail so far. I bought some EGR valve blanking plates off ebay and fitted one to the exhaust side of the valve this morning. Took it out for a run and if anything it's worse now. Although it only seem to happen if I give it welly in 4th and 5th. 2nd and 3rd seem ok.
I have seen on an Audit forum http://www.audi-spor...urbo-vanes.html that using Mr Muscle foaming cleanser on the exhaust side of the turbo might fix it but a) it seems to be a right swine to get to the turbo and b] obviously I'm a bit nervous about doing this.
Does anyone have any other ideas please?
