X Type 2.0D Slow acceleration


Recommended Posts

Hi, I've got a 2006 2.0d X type and it seems to be really slow getting off the mark, this has happened all of a sudden. There is no black smoke and the engine management light has not come on, anybody have any ideas please? Thanks, Mart

Hi Martin, 

My son had the same problem with his 2006 x type 2.0d,  and it gradually got worse till it had no real acceleration.  He thought it was the turbo failing, and I thought it was somewhat slightly different and cheaper.

Eventually he stopped googling and got my mechanic to look at it and it was found to be a split pipe ---  one of those going from the manifold to the turbo.

You could have the same problem.  Just start the engine and see if you can hear a whistle or feel a leak.

Let us know how you get on.
