So, I recently had an issue with my 2007 2.3T Wagon. I was accelerating to get around a slow driver and when I decelerated for an intersection, the boost dropped faster than normal. After that, I was unable to get the car to come on to boost and the acceleration was sluggish. I removed the battery and spent an hour, maybe an hour and a half digging around and checking hoses and found nothing. after that, the car ran like normal until yesterday. Now the acceleration is a little on the sluggish side and the car won't go over 4 psi (and to get it to 4, I have to really push it, normally it stops at 3.1-3.5 psi). If I try to go past half open throttle, the car will climb revs quickly but no boost. What's going on? Do I have a really quiet leak? Has an intercooler hose come loose? Is the throttle in need of attention? Is the turbo going out?
