Is This Stuff Normal?
Just have a few things I noticed with the car that I was wondering if is normal.
When I stomp on the accelerator I will get some turbo lag, then the boost guage goes up to about 120 Kpa (17.5PSI) and then a few seconds will drop down I'll feel the car lose power than it would go back up, regain power, and so on. If I don't totally pin it I can keep a constant 80 - 90 Kpa (11.5 - 13PSI) without it doing this. I inspected my charge air piping looks alright, and I am not sure if this is even a turbo issue because sometimes during a cold start it will surge as I drive away and this time my car isn't using boost at all. Any ideas on that?
Also I noticed the oil seems to smell a lot like fuel, oil level hasn't increased at any amount that I could noticed though.
And lastly, I can hear an intermittent tick now, very light, probobly ever 2 seconds. Any ideas on that?
Thanks a lot guys for your time.
