No power when driving

Post by Leejohnson23 » Sun Feb 21, 2021 4:23 pm

Hi, first post. Hopefully someone can help. I have a 2007 Qashqai. I had the turbo changed about 6 months ago, the car has seemed sluggish since but today there was hardly any power when accelerating. It struggled to go above 20mph. When I took my foot off the accelerator and pressed down again it seemed to kick in. Black smoke is coming out of the exhaust as well, not sure if same issue. Any help would be greatly appreciated.

Smoking like that will be over fuelling for some reason. You need to get it checked which would likely reveal certain error codes (DTCs)

Hi, I have changed the fuel filter as that keep coming up as maybe the problem. Done everything I should do and gone to pump the ball thing but it isn’t dragging any fuel through. Why would that be, do you know? Thank you in advance.
