TURBO

2005 Peugeot 307 • 85,000 miles

When I accelerate on 4 and 5 gear then turbo turn off. Then I stop the car turn the engine off and back on again and turbo works fine. Can you tell me what is wrong with it?

Not possible for turbo to "turn off" if engine is runni ng turbo vanes are turning. Car has veriable displacement turbo so at low speed vanes are small and turn faster to prevent lag at high speeds turbo vanes expand and turbo quites in operation. Why do you think it "turns off"?

Because - lost power, revs up to 3000rpm. Looks like electrical problem because when stop the car, turn off engine and back on again works fine.
