    Help please!!

    Hi all! I am at my wits end with this 5 series now. its an e60 525d 2005 manual. last night was driving and all of a sudden i lost all power completley, it was like driving a 1 litre! Theres a rattling noise when i accelerate and whistles very loud when going up high revs and ofter chatters after i release the throttle! Does this mean my turbo is fooked or could this be a loose pipe? Any1 had any similar problems? Any info i would greatly appreciate cheers

The other day noticed smoke coming from engine bay (left hand side) and the burning smell is coming from right. Car doesnt smoke while on short journeys but still smells of burning but if driving 45mins ish it smokes. Only seemed to happen when last week i put water in the coolant.Any1 else had anything like this????thanks
