Driving home on wednesday and i heard a "pop" from the engine, loud rasping noise and loss of power. I initially thought that the exhaust had gone.

Rang up my local garage yesterday and they suggested that i look for a loose pipe near the turbo....which i found to my relief. fitted and screwed it back on TIGHTLY, took the car for a drive and everything seems ok.

Anyway, on the way to work this morning the same thing has happened, could there be a second reason why the pipe is being forced off? maybe a build up of pressure or something? or could it just be something simple like a bad fitted pipe?

thanks in advance!!
