    You won't find one on here as it doesn't work.

    Vile Invention

    Dark was that day when Diesel conceived his grim engine that begot you, vile invention, more vicious, more criminal than the camera even, metallic monstrosity, bale and bane of our culture, chief woe of our Commonweal. How dare the Law prohibit hashish and heroin yet license your use, who inflate all weak inferior egos? Their addicts only do harm to their own lives: you poison the lungs of the innocent, your din dithers the peaceful, and on choked roads hundreds must daily die by chance-medley. Nimble technicians, surely you should hang your heads in shame. Your wit works mighty wonders, has landed men on the Moon, replaced brains by computers, and can smithy a "smart" bomb. It is a crying scandal that you cannot take the time or be bothered to build us, what sanity knows we need, an odorless and noiseless staid little electric brougham.

    My turbo was sticking slightly but had no more limp mode after `exercising` it with a handheld vacuum pump and a few bottles of Forte/Wynns turbo cleaner and Archoil 6400-D MAX http://archoil.eu/ar6000-fuel-treatments/ in Shell V-Power.
    Worth changing all the vacuum pipes in case they are collapsing or split, they`re cheap enough.

    Reviving another thread but better than starting a new for same issue... after a bit of googling and tame mechanic questioning I have come the conclusion that I may have a slightly sticky VNT mechanism, and have found articles detailing inserting Mr Muscle into the exhaust side of the turbo and Letting it work it’s magic then going for a good high-rev drive to clean out the crud. Can anyone categorically confirm this as a successful cleaning method? I.e. tried and tested? Cheers!

    I'm sure I've read a thread about cleaning turbo's where Crasher said Mr Muscle removes everything but it leaves water behind which buggers up the turbo bearings.

    I've searched for this thread but nothing useful shows. If Crasher can post the link that would be good.

    In that case would a liberal spray of WD-40 afterwards be of benefit?

    Aint no such thing, we are all savages, we have signs up here saying "please don't feed the mechanics"

    WD40 would do the DPF/cat the world of good.
