    I was driving back from Liverpool (Knowsley) to Leeds on Saturday, and when I got onto the M57 I was in the middle lane when I realised that I was only doing 65mph and not getting any quicker. I did have 4 people in plus some stuff in the boot so wondered if I'd just got into 5th too early, so changed down. There was a lot of noise and high revs but even with my foot to the floor I wasn't picking up any speed. It actually felt like I had the handbrake on, but no.

    In the end I pulled over into the Hard Shoulder, switched off my engine, waited a short while and started the car again - and all was fine and I was able to enjoy the full 130bhp. Talking to a friend it sounds like my turbo may have stopped working properly (my other car's a Fabia SDI and in hindsight, it was pretty much the same as driving that in terms of what was under the foot). It's been fine since but I just wondered if there's anything I can do to check the turbo over or keep it in good nick, or whether I should be concerned? The A4 has 234k on the clock but drives flawlessly; this is the first issue I've had with it in the year since I bought it.

    Cheers!

    Get a scan done using vcds software you most likely have a over boosting turbo sticking vanes in the turbo but get that scan done and post the code up on here.

    Classic under or over boost problem, a fault code read is the easiest way to find out which it is and 99% of the time it will be overboost which means turbo rebuild time.
    Dark was that day when Diesel conceived his grim engine that begot you, vile invention, more vicious, more criminal than the camera even, metallic monstrosity, bale and bane of our culture, chief woe of our Commonweal. How dare the Law prohibit hashish and heroin yet license your use, who inflate all weak inferior egos? Their addicts only do harm to their own lives: you poison the lungs of the innocent, your din dithers the peaceful, and on choked roads hundreds must daily die by chance-medley. Nimble technicians, surely you should hang your heads in shame. Your wit works mighty wonders, has landed men on the Moon, replaced brains by computers, and can smithy a "smart" bomb. It is a crying scandal that you cannot take the time or be bothered to build us, what sanity knows we need, an odorless and noiseless staid little electric brougham.
