Noticed today, that it isn't just the boost guage not working, it is the boost gauge only showing boost. It will drop the 0 pressure area off boost, but not go into - vacuum, and once it actually stuck at + a small ammount, and then gradually crawled down. Then after the car has been sat for a while, it will work fine. I'm guessing I've nipped a hose in there somewhere and the trapped pressure is gradually leaking back. Only explanation I can think of. Oh, and to add insult to injury, while passing an Audi TT this morning, on a Dual carriageway, got it upto about 60 in 3rd, just about to shift up to 4th, when there was a pop, and a stumble, and the bloody thing just limped along till I could pull over. Bloody boost pipe to the intercooler had decided to part company with the turbo. Not the most pleasant job, reattaching a boost pipe to a turbo at working temp, when the jubillee clip is awkward to get at. -- The poster formerly known as Skodapilot. http://www.bouncing-czechs.com
