    A Big Help Needed And Welcome

    well i think its my vxr turbo,which was only fitted jan this year and its only done 6k since fitted by courtaney sport, dont now what is going on with it, some times if i put my foot down it will sploter as in a bubble sploter, then the engine managment light comes on, and the turbo stops working and the car sounds likea clamped out scubby, but if i turn the engine off the back on a gain , it goes away, and itll work again as long as i dont stamp my foot down, itll easy still do 100mph if i build it up nice and smouth , and some times it works fine if i put my foot down , i know what your thinking it sounds f_____ed but how , if the turbo still works fine if i dont stamp my foot down, well im geting it rolling raod on sat morning, hopeing its just a gasket or some thing simple to fix as i was looking at focus rs, to px mine with, and this goes and happens , well any 1 got any ideas what it sounds like would help, and if any 1 heard much of the fucos rs what there like would be nice too, thanks for reading , paul

    Don't think it's turbo if it seems OK sometimes.
    Prob. some sensor or other.
    Someone on here will be along and give better suggestions.

    If it's sounding like a scooby under load then its probably the coil pack breaking down, change the plugs first and regap them if you are above standard map, failing that it would be the coilpack. post the fault codes up

    have u done the pedal trick to see if theres any codes stored?

    could be something as simple as a sensor or solenoid for instance

    Sounds like the coil pack.

    Where you from?

    Maybe someone local could try it?
    The truth is always the truth even if you haven't realised it yet...
