Can you give us some description/symptoms of what's going on?
Yesterday when I was driving home from work I smelled some burning and I seemed to have lost boost (from my gauge). I pulled over and sure enough my turbo/heat shield was smoking because the turbo was so hot. I let it cool down then limped back to my house staying off boost.

I could hear the coolant boiling in the top line so I figured I maybe had a blockage so fluid could not flow. This morning I checked the coolant lines and topped off the coolant but there did not seem to be any problems there. I drove real slow to work staying off boost today but it did not seem to heat up as much as yesterday. Maybe it was blocked and when I took of the lines to check them it freed it up.
