Question about 2003 Dodge Sprinter

1 Answer

NO TURBO ON THE SPRINTER

THE TURBO WAS REPLACED NOT TO LONG AGO DO TO THE WASTE GATE NOT WORKING NOW IT CAME BACK DO TO A LACK OF POWER, FOUND THAT THE VECHICLE WAS'NT BOOSTING! THE HOSE FROM THE EXHAUST REGLATOR TO THE WASTE GATE HAS NO VACUME AND THE CONNECTOR TO THE EXHAUST REGULATOR BOTH PINS ON CONNECTOR SHOW GROUNG! SHOULD 'NT IT HAVE ONE GROUND AND ONE POWER? OR DOES IT SHOOT THE POWER WHEN YOU WHOMP IT FOR THE TURBO TO KICK IN?

    I NOTICED THAT WHEN I GO TO MANUAL THE GEARS DON'T KICK DOWN! AND IF SO THEN I'M ON HIGH GEAR ALL THE TIME SO TO ME THAT WOULD ALSO BE THE REASON THE TURBO DOE'NT KICK IN! i WILL TRY TO REPLACE IT AND SEE HOW IT GO'S!

You need a dealer to do testing on the waste gate control system.

Thanks Terry. The car does not have full power.


Are you getting turbo boost pressure, waste gate may be open check waste gate actuator. Check that BOV is not stuck open you could clean with some throttle body cleaner. http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=govRsNtY8DM

THe waste gate is activated by pressure from either the turbo or the oil sustem. If it is physically blocked it wont open. If there is a leak in hoses to the gate it wont open. If the unit is valve operated and the valve sticks, it wont open.

2003 Jetta TDI.. accelerating on Hwy, i feel like the turbo stops working and the vehicle accelerates only on naturally asperated power. engine light comes on. I can turn off the car and restart it, and...


I have the same car/year and problem. My turbo first acted up 50,000 km ago. I was told it was the waste gate linkage that was sticking. The Mechanic lubed it and work it back and worth with a air pressure device. Worked well for 40,000 km's but goes into limp mode almost every day.

I am told it could be waste gate actuator, air flow sensor, a vacuum leak, or one other thing. If you just bought this car it probably had the problem for a while and that's why the person who had it before dumped the car.

Worse case is the turbo with waste gate assembly attached come as one pice will have to be replaced for $1,500.00

I HAVE A 2007 DODGE SPRINTER WITH CODE PO299 WHAT TEST CAN I DO


Check all hoses to and from turbo to intake .. it is most likely a leak somewhere and the pcm is reading it as a underboost code.

Lack of power using way more fuel and hissing by the firewall , i unpluged hose off wste gate box , pretty well same thing happening, maybe bit les power


One of your turbo boots or intake boots is off or has a hole in it! Could be either cracked or has come loose of the clamp. This is your hissing noise your hearing. It means the turbo is making the boost but it is not getting to your engine. Its leaking out the boot. No boost no power! Poor performance and bad fuel economy too. You need to check all of your boots and clamps. If you say it is by the firewall then start on the side that the hiss seems to be comming from. DONT unplug your turbo waste gate as you can damage your turbo or other engine components! your waste gate allows excess pressure not needed on your exhaust side to escape.

My talon laggs power..when i first bought the car it was great..off the stop i would gas it and rite at 3000 rpms you would feel the turbo kick in and sink u into ur seat but now i drive it and it just...


the waste gate solenoid could be stuck in the open position causing the exhaust to bypass the turbocharger and not spool up causing the lack of power, so remove the turbo and check the exhaust outlet chamber and make sure that the gate isnt open

Waste gate jammed on torbo on 2002 passat


go to alldata.diy.com pay $20.00 to get detailed info on the trubo, most likey the hose is wore out the rubber hose and will have to be replaced the waste gate keeps from over boosting the engine so if the hose is worn the clamps won't hold it any more. remove the hoses on the turbo wiggle the turbo shaft back and forth and end to end there should be no play in the shaft if there is you need a turbo kit and can buy one to rebuild it, look up bell turbos in oregon on the net and get his number he can tell you the cost of the kit and how to rebuild. If you have excessive oil on the rubber hose then you have a blown oil seal and it will need to be replaced. you are lucky at this pont and the kit will come with what you need to fix the waste gate as well, but dought the gate is the problem.
