    Service vehicle soon - turbo issue

    Forum Key Rings
    I had the service vehicle soon message pinging up for a few weeks. Even though the car ran perfectly I booked it in for a diagnostic check at vauxhall. I expected it to be a glow plug issue as this seems a common fault but it turned out to be a boost sensor or switch on the turbo. It appears the sensor is built in to the turbo at manufacture and cannot be replaced so I have a new turbo on order. Fortunately it is covered by the warranty I got as part of the deal when I bought the car so I'm not complaining. Another bonus is that my insignia is approaching 60,000 miles so was probably due a turbo anyway. Not my usual luck I can assure you.

    Replace an turbo each 60.000? What are you doing with your car? I never had to replace a turbo, even on my Astra which had 200.000 miles on it...

    as far as i know there's no switches or sensors on the turbo
    the boost is measured at the manifold, and the variable vanes is controlled by the boost solenoid valve at the front
    either way let warranty fix it

    Yep, I'll take your word for that.. I spoke to a receptionist not a technician so that was all the info they gave me. Either way , a new turbo is not something to be turned down. Just waiting to a fitting date.
