96 hatch help

Asked by Oct 05, 2016 at 01:29 PM

Question type: Maintenance & Repair

Can anyone help me.  My hatch has problems that
I can't seem to figure it out.  Extreme  power loss,  
turbo glowed red in minutes,  5 mpg,  have to give
it gas while the clutch is down or it will stall,  hard
time starting.  
It's a 96 hatch with a b18 bored to a b20 low
compression turbocharged.  Was running great
and one day it started to get a little warm then it
lost all its power.  Pulled in a gas station to fill it
and left was on a hill and if I didn't give it gas it
would cut off on me.  After getting a trailer it
wouldn't go pass 20 mph.  And getting it on the
trailer and off I had to basically push it.
