if the turbocharger is faulty is so many different thinks to come

Sometime I loose power and black smoke is coming from behind is mean vacuum or actuator is faulty and need to repairs

I still drive the car, this is dangerous

If the smoke is blue or white is really big problem, sometime this is mean turbo or injectors are faulty

many times is come on dashboard "limp mode" or " check engine lights"

Faulty turbocharger c
an be damage the engine

Turbo bearing can suck the oil and back to the engine , burn it and over rev itself

You can't stop the engine even if you turn off the key

But I really don't care car is old and will go soon to scrap yard :)

My problem started with a sudden acceleration fully loaded car and I lost the power.

That was a year ago.

I started with the diagnostic myself.

Turbo was failure, rotor and VNT dammaged.

I gave the turbine to the guy who deals with the regeneration of the turbines.

I told the guy to replace faulty turbo parts.

I did fitting and I did changed oil and filters myself.

After driving approx. 15 miles route cut off my turbo!

At first I thought it was just a single error.

It's happened again and again

Please help me
