  post locked   Split turbo pipe??? Please help  

Hi, went to purchase a ford mondeo ghia 2.0 TDCi 2005 last night. Was perfect car but when I accelerated, the turbo sounded a bit blowy and we got told that there was a small split in the turbo pipe. Other than that, the car drove fine. When we got back the car had been sat idle for a few minutes and when I tried to start it again, it wouldn't fire up and sounded really chuggy. The guy said it was because the split in the turbo was letting in a bit of air and that he'd get the split repaired before I took it. I said I'd leave it for now and as I was walking away it started again. Just wanted to know if that sounds like the problem he said or something else? Thanks for help
