    my cars turbo blew last week and had a used one put in. Turbo whines really loud but the turbo felt fine before instalment and had no play at all
    Also Ive noticed my car will no longer stay at 90 it goes between 80-90 now
    what could be causing these problems
    Also seems the egr valve is leaking and getting oil everywhere
    Any help will be appreciated

    Mine goes 80-90 now too. I've got a new thermostat (hoping to fit tomorrow) to see if it cures it.

    From seeing another thread, seems the dash gauge can show false readings, as my water pipe down there also looks weak, so I won't disturb for now.
