O/T Turbo Diesel help

Anyone know a (cheap) garage competent with Turbo Diesels in the Maidenhead area.


Local Renault garage says

We'll replace the Turbo and glow plugs for £2000 and then start trying to figure out what the problem is - no thanks !

Renault Laguna 1.9DTi


Total lack of power from low revs - need the turbo to kick in a 2000+ rpm to get anything to happen.


this follows a dodgy , not fully undiagnosed non- starting fault - ECU diagnostics claimed Crank sensor error , but replacing sensor made no difference - the fault kind of went away and then...

New turbo my c*ck. 10 to 1 says this is electrical and some sensor has gone tom and dick, and the ECU is being given duff info. I dread to think how many ECUs have been replaced for a bit of corrosion on a sensor connection. As for replacing the glow plugs, since when did you say it wouldn't start in the cold? Tossers. I'd find a decent Krypton garage, above all else someone who knows his stuff, and he'll sort the fault. 9 out of 10 dealers are rubbish at this and just blindly read codes. If it doesn't pop up a code they have a guess. This is why I once had a Ford dealer tell me my Fiesta was suffering from carb icing. It was July.

My Dad used to take his Renault 21 to

Boxer Motor Co (Renault specialists)

Unit D, Reform Rd

Maidenhead Berkshire

He always had a good reasonably priced service from them and they even gave him a decent price for the car when he defected to BMWdom.
