My turbo blew last September taking with it the gasket and injector. I was charged £2000 for it all to be done at a independent garage. We were driving on the motorway yesterday at a steady 75mph, no acceleration involved and the revs went upto 3000 I thought maybe I just needed to change gear and pushed it into neutral, the revs went over 6000 and white smoke was pouring out of the engine. The only way I could get the smoke and revs to stop was to pull over and switch off the engine.
I have read a lot of articles that say this would be down to poor workmanship and the garage should be liable to repair the work.
Is this the case? Is there anything else that would have caused the turbo to go again?
