Have you looked under the bonnet?.......does sound like you\'ve blown a hose off as MITCH suggests. .....lumpy idle, no power and boost gauge will read vacuum to 0 but no positive pressure. Cant really plumb a boost gauge up wrong...?

Hi, mate happen to me on a golf mkiv .....Anyways you may be lucky and its snapped inside the car and you can pull the end with pliers. If at engine end think best to wait for someone with personal experience.

General Technical / fmic or v mount ic

Both the IC and the Radiator are made of alloy, welds are beautiful in the car from last summer no leaks, fitting kit was tacky and no instructions but you can re-engineer those like binning the hose clamps as the first one just stripped so bought proper jubilees. My set up was cheap but it works and far superior to standard IC and my rad and condensor was knackered.....didn\'t want(read cant afford) a divorce by spending 1500 on a branded system. Its up to you really but anything is better than the standard IC. I know ebay sells :censored::censored::censored::censored:e I\'ve bought my fair share in the past...LOL but these 2 item work on my car and dont cost the earth.....in my eyes there proven on a near standard car.

Battery wise I went down the scrappy and got the battery lead from a e36 bmw and put that in ! passed through bulkhead where the Ac pipes go through, simple bracket made from alloy chequer plate....easy. Small 063 battery light weight and cheap.
 
Do the rad at same time , the IC ebay kit £250.00 is the same as the Japspeed Kit and basically a copy of the greddy kit.....but cheaper...by a long way! Comes with silicone joiners and hard pipes , only thing i changed is jubilee clips to beefier 1\'s.  Mine was only a sod as previous repair saw someone use self tappers to screw wings to front bumper so i had to remove lights etc. Cant remember where i got rad from ...think trade stand at Japfest last year. Bout £60.00 £15.00 coolant. If you handy with the spanners you\'ll be fine.

Your going to get alot more efficient cooling with a front mount iintercooler so your intake charge temps will be lower ( abit like car feeling quicker on a cold day as air in denser)....but anything is better than the standard IC. I fitted a huge ebay jobbie along with a 50mm alloy rad last summer....It was a complete sod and yes i had to lose brace but no heat soak suffered yet! I had to cut front bumper and took several trims to get a snug fit. Its a 2 man job ideally so you can offer up and stand back...make adjustments....and of course removing bumper and refitting. It took me 2 solid days. My front bumper was self tappered on from wings .....some previous repair so lights etc came out to get bumper off.......! Worth it in end and glad i done it myself.

If its only just been serviced has someone forgot to torque the drain bolt or the oil filter is loose.......think you have 2 separate problems....oil leak due to mistake.....and misfire due to coilpack, leads or sparks did they change them loose connection?......is it the same garage now working on it as serviced it? ever the sceptic but if its just been serviced has somebody made a mess of it?
Good luck with it....post what the garage state........
