I just finished a new radiator and BPD EGR cooler. And serpentine belt. It started and idles O.K., but a fierce turbo leak in the rear. Lettin' it cool down a bit before I climb up and try to tighten the clamp.
On my road test it was shifting and accelerating with great difficulty. Made about 25 lbs. of boost up a slight incline. turning onto my street, it barely made it up the rise and into my driveway. BIG lack of power. Reached into the plumbing and the turbo spins freely with no noticable endplay. Shade Tree mechanic (that i was stuck with) thinks low trannie fluid. Thoughts?
My apologies for this, I don't mean to hijack this thread. After blowing white smoke, I feared an engine swap, too!
