    I wouldn't put any serious money into a non EU6 TDI now with the Toxicity zones which will be all over the UK in less than three years. I can see an absolute collapse in the value of non EU6 diesels vehicles in the next 18 months when people finally stop living in denial.

    I wouldn't worry Zolly, it is only being introduced in civilized countries, not Wales...

    Well... the flashing coil light, turned out to be a faulty bulb.

    Took it to a local garage who plugged it in... ran a few tests under the bonnet... and told me that the turbo was Underboosting and was basicly stuffed!

    Didn't charge me a penny! Said he could fit a new turbo but would be looking at around 500 labour and said I'd need a kkk turbo... then added that if I took it off and just cleaned it. It would probably work fine. (Just he didn't do that.)

    So I've been looking at trying out the Mr muscle clean... any advice?

    mr muscle is a short term solution . some people use it successfully, but it can do more harm than good and cannot get into the places it needs to. and 500 labour, he really doesnt want to do the job, does he . 4 hours would see it off and back on again..

    He may not have wanted the job. But he didn't charge me for any of the diagnostics and that's normally 60 alone round here, without them popping the bonnet.

    Even with only 4 hours labour and the cost of a turbo... I only paid 700 for the car 6 months ago and just got it past the 180k mark. (And the gearbox goes a little clunky all of a sudden...)

    I like the toledo because it's rarer.. hardly see any on the roads... its comfy and keeps on going... the unfortunate reality it's knackered.
    If I Mr muscle it and it works, great! If it doesn't. ...well it's still knackerd

    So... update time...

    Had a puncture... jacked up the car... blah blah blah... just doing up the spare and some idiot bumps into my car and drops it off the jack. (Yes. Should have used axel stands)... anyway... now it's working! Boosting like a trooper. No limp mode and back to being a nippy lil motor.

    Must have been a stuck impeller?
