Only owned my RCZ two days, bought privately, did all my research, it drove perfectly, tested it four times. Took it for a long run today, first hour was fine, then on way home, feels like no turbo, no boost, but no warning lights on dash. Any clues anybody?

It’s a petrol, haven’t checked anything yet. Probably take it to my garage tomorrow morning, hook it up to check error codes, but weirdly nothing has shown on the dash.

I would hold off taking it to the garage straight away. Can be many things that trigger the ECU to think there may be a problem and put the car into limp mode (no turbo) to protect the engine. BUT if there is no issue after a certain period of time or miles it will figure it made a mistake and engage the turbo again. It's happened to me before but I couldn't tell you the exact criteria until it's OK again but it's something like 5 or 7 drives of X amount of miles or something like that. Hope that helps!

Just checked and it's called '5 Trip Logic' - meaning if the fault was not present for 5 continuous drive cycles the fault will get permanently removed from the memory. The drive cycle depends on the type of failure. Can be just ignition on, warm up cycle or X amount of miles traveled. 👍

Check the Diverter Valve it may be seals leaking or it may be failing altogether

similar issues with mine, made a separate topic

On vacation in France right now which is lovely this time of year.
On the way here though when we hit the hills i felt i had no power at all i cant hear the turbo spool up no boost nothing. Neither did i get anything on the dashboard... After the car cools down and i drive off again it behaves like normal until it gets warm again and stops
