Sounds like there could be a fault with the turbo or the sealant round the turbo, does it smoke much?

Thanks Poddy for reply,I agree it looks like a turbo problem. The cars going into dealer in the morning (Tue). Will let you know the outcome, this is the first problem I`ve had in 32k miles. Re. the smoke ,none that I`ve noticed. Thanks again.

Car went into dealership this morning. As suspected a faulty turbo was diagnosed. The service manager contacted KIA, UK who authorised fitting a new turbo,which will be done Thur.when the part arrives.
After all the negativeposts I`ve read about warranty issues, I`m very impressed with the service I have received. So well done Hursts Kia Belfast.
