Rover 400D Turbo problems - Vim Fuego
Driving home on the motorway last I noticed a lack of power going up hills ( was almost down to 60 mph).
The turbo doesn't seem to be working at all. When I go through the gears the revs go up to about 3500rpm which is unheard of.
I've disconnected the MAF sensor but this hasn't made any difference, any ideas?

Depends on year.
If it was the latest shape (that became the 45) then it's L Series.

Should be 'L' series.
Common problems seem to be water getting into MAP sensor plug.
MAP sensor is located on the bulkhead with a small diameter rubber pipe connected.
Wiring plug is upside down & allows water to settle inside.
Others have also reported the turbo pipe becomming soft & getting sucked together narrowing the air flow.
