My bongo which has always driven beautifully has just started to judder... at speeds... it's as if the engine suddenly snags on something... it's a little jarring and then it goes on... not smooth any more... and also it's lost its power... struggling to go over 65... sometimes on very slight inclines hardly able to accelerate...
I've checked over all the air intake hoses that I can see and nothing obvious is loose... I've run the engine and felt around for air leaks from those pipes... can't feel anything there either.
There's a leak in the exhaust pipe that i've found about half way down that really blows out a lot of warm air but i'm not sure if that could affect the turbo. I'm wondering about the intercooler but not sure how to check its health?
I'm pretty much ready to surrender and bring it into a garage... anything else i can check before doing that? Thanks!
