HELP!! need some urgent advice 530D turbo failure?
I own a 2005 530D auto BMW. A few days the car developed a lack of power sympton while i tried to accelerate, when i put my foot down on the accelerator it would not go past 15-20mph. The revs will slowly build up, then there was a sudden boost of power after approx 20 secs and it will drive normal.
To cut a long story short, i took it to my local mechanic, he suspected mass air flow meter or the guibo (what ever that is?).
To make sure he took the car to a BMW dealers to get a diagnostic report. While the car was at the dealers undergoing checks for the MAF meter the dealers notified me that my turbo had failed and the engine started to run on its own oil and it is completely damaged.
they quoted me approx 19,000 (yes nineteen thousand pounds) for the repair, but told me BMW GB are willing to pay 40% for the parts, which still leaves me nearly 12,000 to pay.
Can anyone please help me!!......
