Air Intake Turbo Pipe replaced but still no power

Post by PHD » Wed Aug 14, 2019 9:52 am

Hi

I have a 2012 quashqai NTEC1.5 diesel.

A week ago I was loosing power and after a google it was obviously a cracked air intake turbo pipe (seems a regular problem)

I ordered a replacement.

In the meantime I drove the car for short journeys over a couple of days. Yesterday, it limped home and then konked out.

I have replaced the pipe this morning but now have no power at all. It turns over, revs to 1000 but then won’t idle and konks out again.

Have I damaged the turbo, engine or anything else driving while the pipe was cracked?

I had the turbo replaced with a reconditioned one 6 months ago.

Any advice would be great.

Thanks

I am just guessing but, if it do not rev up more than a 1000 rpm, I would check if turbo is ok. Maybe you have problem with a turbo.

Your DPF filter is blocked or partially blocked, this will cause it to come to a shuddering stop when you start it. The broken pipe is the weak spot within the system that has relieved the pressure simply replacing the intercooler turbo pipe will not fix the issue.

The Deisel Particulate Filter gets a build up of soot from short journeys and it requires a good motorway run in 5th to burn off the the particulates that build up.

You will need to find a garage willing to remove it and a DPF cleaning business to take it too. Soon as you mention Nissan Qashqai you'll get the oh yeh I know which means it's a common problem for this type of car. No point taking it to quick fit or halfords they dont touch them.
