Hi Adrian.

Personally I do not think your two problems are related and I'm afraid to say neither job will be cheap to repair, I wish you luck.

Return it and get your money back? Just hope it was not a private sale?

Hello Adi I just joined about an hour ago.Sounds like this is likely to be an inherited problem rather than a coincidence.

last time I had a gearstick doing that was a synchronise ring failed after my mate missed third wearing platform shoes in the seventies.

slim chance it might be outside the box and somethings popped out of line and interfering with the selector.

Turbo problems are often Oil related, dirty or starved of. Check any service history concerning both issues, and check the MOT history of your car at the .gov check address, it's handy for sussing out all manner of things that you could be encountering soon.Loads of dodgy "people" giving out certificates for sheds.not saying yours is, but good for getting a feel for the way it's been cared for.

You Tube is handy for getting an Idea about problem solving

Keep us posted, I will do a bit of research.

5th gear is a fault with these ravs very expensive fix and and even if you fit a box yourself it's a real struggle to the other problem could be anything really probably not the actual turbo the easiest way will be to take it back get money back asap
