so, the turbo fan operates on parameters apart from whether the turbo is spinning (since it always is). what these parameters might be, i am not sure, but i guess they would include the temperature of the engine and whether the engine has been worked hard.

(the principles are the same regardless of the type of fuel :-) )

the turbo of your car is actually designed to spin up at fairly low revs, because it is designed not so much to boost high-rev power, but to provide high torque across a wide spectrum of engine rpm.
Thanks ! I suspect my wife could have rammed the accelerator. I don't have this at all for the past 1 month. Only today.

Does this Turbo thing only for C4GP Diesel? What about the Petrol version?

This is perfectly normally, the radiator fan will continue to spin until desired temp is reached. Does not matter whether its turbo or non-turbo.

It's always on except you are on high acceleration or normal. My experience when fan was still needed was when I drive on higher rpm for a while before parking

Thanks CItC4.

Do you know if there'll be a symbol indicator on the dashboard if Turbo is activated?

No indication except from the feel and sound. You will feel the car more responsive when on higher rpm

Its a high pressure Turbo Diesel.. once you are above the 1850rpm range it would be activated.

Having a Turbo light and Boost indicator reminds me of those WRX style gauges.. fun to see the blinking lights and LED blink blink

And I assume my Petrol version of C4GP has this Turbo function above the 1850rpm range as what CItC4 mentioned previously.
