Turbo seized

Postby RECKLESS ROAD » Fri Aug 11, 2017 6:42 pm

Only had van a few weeks and for the last couple of weeks I felt the van was not right , I couldn't put it words what was wrong but it felt like the power wasn't controlled 100% by the accelerator if that makes sense , anyway booked into ford on Wednesday but said van was fine, I took the tech notion out on a test drive explaining best I could what I thought was wrong but he just said that's modern vans for you , anyway started van this morning and my dash lit up like a Xmas tree , eml , traction control light , service light were all on and I had service engine now and hill start assist messages on display and van had no power , ford managed to get me in today and have just called to say my turbo has seized and needs a new one , 125bhp jumbo trend l4 2016

Hope you do not need engine as mine has been in the dealers since 3rd July and still waiting for engine.
Only did 47000miles

They phoned yesterday to say replacement turbo would be here first thing today (thursday) and my van would be done at 1pm , so at 1pm I went to collect my van only to be told that the turbo hadn't turned up and they didn't know where it is , my van was booked out on a job at 2pm and they just said we can't do anything cause we don't know where the turbo is :? They are hopeful that it will turn up in the morning but they can't promise, not sure how I kept my cool but I did, but this is the last time I use Evans halshaw wolverhampton
