i recently got my car back after fixing a rattling sound coming from under the car which was due to a metal piece in the catalytic converter or somewhere down there, got the car right before the dealer was closing for the weekend and was happy with the fast service but now i got this.
my car feels really slow and from what i can see the supercharger boost indicator in the dash shows me 20% efficiency while driving, from stop i kick the pedal WOT and see the boost indicator going to half and slowly going down to 20-30%, 2nd gear and the boost either stays the same or goes down slightly and as the speed builds up and gears change the boost just stays there @ 20-30% of the bar when i take my foot of and kick the pedal again boost jumps to almost 60% and goes back to 30-40% and slowly goes down to the same 20-30%.
very frustrating problem with the car only @ 45,000 kms , took the car back but the dealer didnt know what was wrong. took it further away to another dealer and they changed the spark plugs on my request and cleaned the supercharger from the inside or so i was told but still no improvment what so ever. tomorrow the car will be towed to a far away dealer who seems to have a bigger place with twice as much engineers and technicians, fingers crossed hope they get to know whats causing this.
has anybody crossed upon a smiliar problem? what was the solution? anybody wanna share some knowledge regarding what could be affecting the supercharger?
while in neutral revving the car makes the boost jump to almost 70% and go back down so i guess its working fine but whats affecting it while driving?
