Just bought a 2008 Sky Redline. No reading on the turbo. Can't tell if can hear it. Feels less power than a previously tested car. Do you think the turbo is not working? No "check engine" light

Installed factory saturn sky redline 2007 my battery went dead recharged now my stero will not come on what can I do


See if you may have a blown fuse. It also may be asking for a code. If the radio is not even lighting up or coming on, it will just be a fuse.

2007 350 twin turbo ,oil getting in turbo and reducing engine power on my 2008 ford 350 diesel


This is a hard question to answer, but I will try to help. I would assume that you have taken some portion of the turbo system off.

First, it is possible for one side to be good and the other to be bad. You would want to look at the exhaust ports from the heads to see if there is oil going to the Turbo from a bad Valve seal from a cylinder or a bad oil ring on a Piston.

Once you are assured that the problem is in the Turbo, there are oil seals on the rotor shafts. If there is a roughness in an oiled bushing or shaft surface, the Turbo slows down. This would reduce power. You may be able to feel the roughness with your hands.

Another Fixya Expert may be able to tell you more about testing the RPM of the Turbo and they may know how to do it without disassembling them. I hope my input has helped.

Hello, I own a 2002 Jetta Diesel, lately its lacking power from time to time, seems like the boost from the turbo is delayed. Is that something I can fix or will I need a turbo?


you may be experiencing turbo lag due to a failing turbo or it could be that the waste gate on the turbo is sticking or that the vacuum line that operates the waste gate is frayed. check all connections going to and from the turbo check tightness check for leaks and check to see if the rubber hose has been compromised by the heat . hope this helps you.

2008 Saturn Sky Redline - starting issues. If I


I have the same problem, found that when it rains heavy or I wash the Saturn Sky; water runs down over the computer under the hood on the driverside. There is a drain port just above the computer so water runs down through the drain port onto the computer wiring shorting out this computer, when the wiring dries out the electrical problems are fixed. but the water can do damage to the computer which comtrols the radio and many other electronics inthe Saturn Sky. I know this because this happened to me. after washing my Sky all the electronics went crazy, found the water on my computer wiring. after a couple of times of the wiring shorting out the radio started comming on by its self while the car was shut off causing the battery to die over night. What a crazy place to put a drain port over top of a computer and its wiring. A cover needs to be made and placed over the top of the computer to prevent this from happening again. If you are having a problem getting GM to fix the problem; wash the car using a garden hose and let alot of water run down over the window on the driverside so the water can run down the water port under the hood onto the computer and wiring, this should create the same problem then take it back to the GM dealer and show them the water problem. They can then refuse to correct the problem. Good Luck. O yes one other problem you need to know about, if you don't have mud flaps on the front wheels the paint will chip real bad on the rear lower quater pannels and it will cost you a good dollar to have it repainted.

Power loss and black smoke?


I had a similar issue to this after I got in a VERY small fender bender (literally) in an 87 Turbo Supra. In my case, my pasenger fender got pushed in JUST enough to crack a charge pipe and cause a boost leak.

Basically, what was happening was the turbo would spool and build boost, the mass fair flow sensor would read all this air coming in and tell the ECU to dial up the the appropriate amount of fuel. When the air reached the cracks in the charge pipe, it would escape out of them. Thus there was a much lower air-to-fuel ratio, causing less fuel to combust, which lead to power loss and black smoke out of the exhaust.

My guess is either an oxygen sensor, or more likely a boost leak.

Good luck mate.

Yes it is. Just be sure it is not whining because of a leak in the intake or exhaust side of the turbocharger.
