There were also error codes for 2 of the glow plugs, but not major I imagine as no engine warning light or service light on dashboard.
The turbo whine is also louder now than it has ever been.
So, I'm nursing it around now, turbo still works, haven't pushed it at all. But I know it's on it's way out.
3 garages I've spoken to have said not to use recon turbos, 2 of them couldn't quote me a price for a new turbo at that time, one of them quoted me Â£1100 for parts and fitting.
Now that's a lot of cash which I don't really have right now, is it worth going to a garage that will fit me a recon? if so what cost would I be looking at for that? or are they right and I'll likely not even get a year out of it, and the 12 month warranties aren't worth the paper they're written on.
Anyone got any experience with replacing turbos on their PD140s? I see lots of posts on here about people having this issue, but never any posts about people's experience after the work has been done.
Or I could just not be using the search function right
