Limp mode after new turbo fitted

Recommended Posts


I've got a subaru forester 2010 which over the past year I've spent alot of money on. A new full reconditioned engine, new clutch, reconditioned injectors and most recently had the turbo sent away to have it full reconditioned as the car was smoking alot due to the turbo leaking oil and coolant. All the work was done by fully guaranteed garage's. I had the turbo returned to me  and fitted but now it all seems fine for a couple of mins then the car goes into limp mode with no turbo. When I turn the car off and back on its fine again but only for a couple of mins. During the few mins it runs like a dream but that's it. I have no warning dashboard lights on so I don't know what the issue is.

Ive disconnected the Battery, pressed the brakes for 10mins to try and reset the ECU but still no joy. Could it possibly be EGR needs cleaning or the solenoid or the boost valve.... Or anything else. 

Hopefully sombody can help me, many thanks in advance
