Hi Guys , whilsts I have adapted my driving to deal with the lag in my IS220D`s turbo kicking in , it seems now to have stopped kicking in al together :-/ , I now have a complete lack of power all the way through the revs and gears :-( the only way the reach 30mph is to high rev ( 3500rpm) in both first and second gear ...... not good !! I`ve cleaned the MAF sensor with electrical contact spray , and also had the EGR valve out to claen out all the carbon deposits , of which there was plenty, all though to no avail , could it be the turbo that has failed , any advice will be greatly appreciated :-) Jc
BriS220dSE posted a topic in Lexus IS 250 / Lexus IS 250C Club / Lexus IS 220D & IS 200D ClubI purchased my 220d se in November 2013 from non dealer garage 2008 model. Recently had a Lexus interim service. I have been having white smoke but it is intermittent. I have also had problems with loss of power in 2nd gear, I can put my foot to the floor and nothing happens and then the power is there in a quick burst. Read on forums and looked on YouTube for solutions and found that cleaning the egr valve can help. When I took the engine cover off there seemed to be a lot happening under cover. Loads of carbon on leads and injectors and the underside of engine cover looks like it's been on fire. Booked in to lexus Thursday after speaking to customer relations regarding extended warranty on certain engine faults as head gasket and 5th injector common faults. Has any one come across similar or is this an indication of anything major. Don't even know how much investigation work is going to cost, I don't suppose lexus will cover it. No warnings are showing in dash other than contact lexus dealer for maintenence Sorry for length of this topic as you can see in relatively new to this. Any help would be appreciated
