Re: Intrested in a second hand laguna - should I stay clear?
whats a HOT SHUT DOWN?
IF I buy it and do the cam and the turbo goes - will it just be the turbo that needs replacing or is the engine done for?
A hot shut down is when say you have been whizzing about (running the
) and for instance go to a pitstop cafe and immediately switch off. the
will still be spinning (some do 150,000rpm so take a while to stop) You switch off the engine which stops the
supply to the
pretty soon your
will be scrap..
Some cars have a secondary electric pump supplying the
which stays on for a minute or two after shutoff, why they don't all have one??? Bean counters I guess and more money to be made for new turbos..
