My brother has an Exora Bold CFE, today the turbo is confirmed dead by 2 different mechanic. All this while, 3 yrs, he has his Exora serviced at Proton SC in Penang, and only after 3 yrs and 3 mths (warranty is 3 yrs), turbo is dead (something the shaft is broken/putus). Check engine light will come up and the error code will be P0299 Turbo...Underboost. To all Sifus out there, pls suggest the cheapest way to rectify this problem of my brother. Tq in advance

did u one of the many that put engine oil treatment during service like the x1r,stp etc etc treatment for oil??


because that have been verified by proton that it leads to the turbo oil starvation causing the turbo shaft damage including broken shaft....

as well as clogged mesh filter inside oil pressure line coming into the turbo.....

there is now workaround...u still have to replace the turbo on your own cost...or perhaps some letter to proton management since it just barely exceed 3years warranty....

Not sure whether you have a turbo specialist in Penang (you can try searching) but in KL we have a few like Tong Turbo where they can repair, rebuild the turbo for you... smile_thumbup.gif

Nope, they are turbo specialist. Saw them once to repair mine, but after checking, my casing also cracked so instead of repair I got another chop unit....
