I have the car listed above 1.6 titanium tdci 09 plate.
Been to 3 different garages (including £1600 at fords themselves).
Have spent £4000 trying to fix the problem and no one seems to know what is wrong.
I have a turbo over boost problem which keeps blowing my pipes.
Turbo has been checked and looked clean and in working order. Apart from a slight oil leak. From my knowledge everything has been checked and said to be working. But nothing has been said about the solenoid. I am no mechanic but been told that could be something to do with it. Any help please?
Do you
