Hi Guys, i'm new to the forum and never owned a turbo car before so I was wandering if you could help?
I bought my Astra Coupe Turbo yesterday, the clocks read 96k but the engine has around 42k. I have a receipt for a stage two map just so you know. I have a couple of questions so here we go:
I was driving home to the West Midlands from Cardiff yesterday and it seemed great, I was very happy. I went to give it the beans on the motorway and the turbo wasn't always holding boost then eventually the engine management light come on and the car lost power and started to sound like a Subaru? Any ideas?
Secondly, the screen that displays the date on the centre console seems dodgy, theirs lines through the screen making it difficult to read and keeps flashing up things like 'Brake Pads and Door' and stuff?
After driving it for a while when stopping at lights and junctions the revs drop below 750rpm and then bounce back up, it even cut out twice yesterday? I have a feeling this could be the AFM?
Last but not least... The alarm went off whilst driving it yesterday which was very strange, I had to turn the car off and back on for it to stop. The car had a satnav built in to the centre console once which was damaged by the previous owners daughter and then returned back to standard. Could this be dodgy wiring?
Thanks in advance guys and I appreciate and help
