Default Swift VDI problem

Hi guys,
a friend of mine has a swift turbo deisel.

yesterday, the while driving, a hissing sound started coming from the car [only when the accelerator was pressed.]

Soon, the turbo [which spools at around 2K RPM] kick stopped happening, the car started spewing out fumes and the milage dropped rather drastically.

What could the problem be?

Sounds like a case of boost leak. Should be easily fixed.

+1 to that - turbo pipe came off. Nothing serious or expensive.

Seems like the hose at turbo air outlet has a leak or has come off.

...but how do you make out mileage drop so quickly?!

Did you get this resolved?
Normally... if you post a problem... please post the resolution as well because it helps other members who search for the same issues to know what happened, and what was done to fix it.
