Injectors And Turbo Trouble

Recommended Posts

hey thare, im from ireland and have an 05 landcruiser gx commersial, i have it sence 06, the injectors went in it, causing the gause filter in the sump to block up stopping Oil flow and starving the turbo of Oil, i managed to get the injectors done under warrenty as there was a callout on the 05 models but i never got it, infact i never got any callout for any of the problems they seem to be having, for eg: brake master cylinder, injectors, corroding wheels,seised brake callipers ect ect. anyway my problem is sence the injectors have being done, the turbo is giving up, its making a shocking whine and is lacking power, it costs over 4 thousand euro for a new turbo, the main dealer will do nothing for me, yet my friend is a michanic in the same dealer and says by rite i should be getting a new engine!, has anyone here suffered the same problems? i just want to know where i stand with the dealers.

thanks.

Barry.

Best thing is to call citizens advice and see what they have to say or try to get a news paper to run a story, Dealerships hate bad publicity and may fix it as a PR thing.

Good luck.
