Hi all, had the Sorento some time now and it's a full head in front of the Discos that preceded it
.
Lots of positive to pass on re. living with,towing long distances/torque etc. BUT, out of nowhere

it's gone on the sick and won't go!!

Does this sound odd or what? went as normal 100 miles or so, stopped for sandwich, then would'nt go! churned it a bit but wasn't happening so had the recovery, yer man in the cape

came, did some more churning-- nought-- keyed the blipper a few times, churned it some more


reluctantly it started. He said it was the immobiliser?finished journey, started home some time later
60 miles later turbo blew.

another caped crusader recovered us by truck


Local garage has fitted new turbo but can't start it. Says I gotta have 1 new injector (£300
) and

even then, that might not do it. Apparently, it tow starts and runs but won't start on starter.

Now, I see a big bill escalating here, but its hard to believe that a recently crisp, tight motor should

throw such a paddy!!

Service history all good, 85000 mls. never started instantly at half crank, always needed 5/8 turns to start, but never a hint of failing to do so till now, any suggestions would be warmly appreciated

box of matches and gallon of petrol accepted!!!

Many thanks chaps,
