The past couple of days I have noticed while coming from a stop in first gear, right around 3k rpm it feels like the turbo just stops working, but i will still accelerate and it isnt rough or a missing cylinder. the engine still runs smooth but it just feels like the power cuts out. could this be a clutch problem? The car WILL still accelerate, just at a slower rate. only happens in 1st gear though.
So i took it out this morning, and it only happened on the first time i pulled out of the driveway. I watch the boost gauge go up to 0, then drop to -10 in Hg when I felt the power loss. Is there a thread on how to pull codes? BTW I just put an OEM diverter valve on and took off the BOV.
this same weird loss of power feeling happened to me in first and second. only for a brief second. when was the last time you changed your fuel filter? it could be clogged with shit.
Not sure, as I just bought the car. It came with a short list of things that had been done. (timing belt, water pump etc) but no record of fuel filter. The only reason i think it WOULDNT be this, is because i can see the drop of boost in the gauge, and a filter would be more of a stutter/miss feeling, just from what i have experienced in previous cars.
