Hi any suggestions twice within a week the hose on the nearside on my intercooler blew off. The first time the garage just shoved it back on and it blew off again 3 days later so they fixed it on with about six cable ties. Both times it came off there was a huge backfire and a cloud of black smoke then I had to drive home at about 40 mph as had virtually no acceleration. On the way home tonight I suddenly lost power again but never heard any backfire this time. Engine management light came on only after stopping the engine when I got home and starting it again then car seemed to misfire and was like a kangaroo initially and very little power. Second time it came off I spoke to Dealer to see if I could get a new clip but they said they don't sell the clips on their own and would be £250 for the hose!!!

Thanks for the links. Will discuss with the garage again tomorrow but they seemed to think the hose was fine but the problem was the clip holding it on
