    think i have a turbo prob.

    yesterday every thing was running sweetly on my astra gsi. today tho is a diffrent story. was driving a long and the the first thing i noticed was a whinnig coming from the turbo. then as i put my foot down there was no boost. just driving like a normal car. there also isnt and whoosh from the dump valve. i have checked hose inthe engine and eveything seems to be in order. there is no blue smoke and no lights on the dash have come on. now i also noticed that my exhaust has sprung a leek as it is poping form the mid section some where. culd this be the prob or is the turbo gone. hope some one can help. thanks

    £500+ for a new VXR turbo and fitting kit plus labour if you can't do it yourself.
