    Hi

    I am looking at buying a hymer 544 which i've had inspected. The report indicates possible low turbo boost but on driving there is no loud whistling or smoke. I wondered if anyone here had had boost issues and if so what fixes there were for this. It is a Fiat Ducato 2.5 TDI, 1991.

    Thanks

    I would ask the person who carried out the inspection, why they suspect low turbo boost and what the cause could be.

    Hi if you take the Air intake pipe off at the turbo you will see the turbo needle -stick your finger on it to see if it wobbles-if it wobbles it is kna---ed so allow £500 off the price for a new one
