Question about 1992 Dodge Stealth

1 Answer

I have a 1992 Dodge Stealth R/T/ TT. When I accelerate to the point where my stock turbo boost gauge reads about 7 psi, there is a weird mechanical fluttering sound, almost like a pressure leak or something. I lose power every time it happens, quite noticeably. It's been suggested it might be my blow-off valve. Before I invest in a new blow-off valve, I would like to here any input I might need to know or any ideas about whats going on...It would be greatly appreciated!!

SOURCE: Dodge 2.7 I'm losing oil

The first stop is to measure the pressure with an external gauge. if the readings are the same, surgery is needed, I would look at the oil pressure relief valve for foreign particles.

It takes resistance to make pressure, and your decsription does not sound good. If the pressure is actually dropping, and you find no issues with the oil pump and pick up, you need to measure bearing clearances... Essentially, everywhere oil is pumped needs to be inspected...

SOURCE: 1992 dodge stealth valve adjustment

If the lifters [automotive repair industry term] or hydraulic lash adjusters [actual terminology], which are ment to maintain the correct distance between the valve train components is bleeding off oil within the adjuster, it must be replaced. The only thing that can be done is to replace them. I would suggest replaceing all 24 [dual overhead cam engine type], if you are in there doing that, you may as well replace the valve stem seals as well... and believe me, its alot of work, ive done it..

Hi. this sounds like the oil pressure sending unit may be malfunctioning. could be a bad module or a lose connection. the second issue that may be the primary issue can be a faulty oil pump. you will find the problem in these two areas.

Please rate and god bless:)

I had the same issue. On the back of the engine (behind steering column) you'll see a pressure sensor with a wire going to it...check your connection. If that doesn't work, then your pressure sensor is probably at the end of it's road. You can get a new one for about 15 bucks at any parts store...hope this helps

Ford 6.4 diesel the boost gauge goes all way up when lightly accelerating but I'm not get power of 40 psi my power feels low/weak. On highway if I press pedal for 1-2. Seconds turbo boost is maxed!!!!


check for leaking boost hoses, cracked inlet tube, cracked intercooler
run the fault codes ( if applicable) could be a sensor that is not communicating the boost setting to the ecm to increase fuel to the injectors

Why dose my mazda 323 gtx over boost buzzer come on and boost cut


Sounds like the waste gate is having trouble. It could be what's called a "boost leak". the waste gate is most likely internal on a factory system. On the turbo, You'll see a small, vacuum pod looking thing with a linkage connected. Check to make sure the vacuum line/hose is properly connected and run that line to make sure it's not cracked some where.
Otherwise, it could be any coupler, connection on the pipes that carry the air from the turbo to the throttle body. Even a "loose clamp" can cause boost leaks. With over boost, it's most likely the waste gate.
Good luck. Hope ya find it.

I myself would go for the pressure sensor, should be located either on the side of the block or on the side of the side of the oil pan. If you're concerned about the reading, the aftermarket sensors you mentioned should work just fine.

Mk3 Supra Turbo Boost Gauge Problems


The gauge is working fine, the turbo will not kick in untill the engine is spinning fast enough, as the turbo is propelled by exaughst from the engine. So, you can drive around normal and never use the turbo, and climb in the gas and spool the turbo up, what you are noticing is called turbo lag, which is the biggest down fall when compaired to superchargers!

Boost(?) problem audi tt


It is probably either the N75 valve(Diverter Valve) or the wastegate actuator. Usually a significant boost leak will set a DTC, still check all hoses and clamps.

A bad wastegate actuator or flap would cause no boost but not necessarily the air-sound.

____________________________________________
Testing N75

Air Bypass Valve: Testing and Inspection
With Generic Scan Tool
Wastegate Bypass Regulator Valve, Checking
Recommended special tools and equipment e.g.:
- VAG1526 multimeter or VAG1715 multimeter
- VAG1594 connector test kit
Test sequence
- Switch ignition off.
- Disconnect connector at solenoid valve for boost pressure regulation.
517f5c6.jpg - Measure resistance between terminals of valve.
Specified value: 25...35 Ohm
If specified value is not obtained:
- Replace Wastegate Bypass Regulator Valve -N75-.

________________________________________________

Testing N249

Exhaust Bypass Valve: Testing and Inspection
With Generic Scan Tool
Recirculating Valve For Turbocharger, Checking
NOTE:
Valve opens between connection to intake manifold and connection to deceleration shut-off valve with no voltage. Connection to vacuum
reservoir is closed.
Test sequence
- Switch ignition off.
- Disconnect connector from Recirculating valve for turbocharger -N249-.

9dfbfb9.jpg - Measure resistance between terminals of valve.
Specified value: 27...30 Ohm
If specified value is not obtained:
- Replace Recirculating valve for turbocharger -N249-.
If specified values are obtained:
- Connect test box to control module wiring harness, connect test box for wiring test.

1a741bd.jpg - Check wire between test box socket 105+2-pin connector terminal 2 for open circuit according to wiring diagram.
Wire resistance: max: 1.5 Ohm
- Also check the wire for short circuit to B+ and Ground (GND).
If no malfunctions are found in wire:
- Check wire between 2-pin connector terminal 1 and the Fuel Pump (FP) Relay -J17- for open circuit according to wiring diagram.
Wire resistance: max: 1.5 Ohm
If no malfunctions are found in wires:
- Replace Engine Control Module (ECM).

____________________________________________


To test the wastegate, locate the wastegate linkage rod and verify that there is no play and that it is closed. You can apply compressed air to the actuator to see if it opens and closes. (not more than 30 psi)

Recently bought a 92 eagle talon tsi awd turbo ''automatic'' and the turbo guage dosen't work the person that i bought the car from said that he replaced the turbo seal that was leaking oil into the...


First things first. Do not bother trying to use the stock boost gauge in that car, it runs off of the ECU and it estimates with small calculations what the PSI may be, the stock boost gauge is ushally 2-3 psi off.

What i recommend is getting yourself an aftermarket boost gauge you can get em used locally on craigslist or a cheapy one from a reputabile ebay power seller. or pick one up for 40-60$ from autozone.

After you do that mount it in a good location, they are very very simply to install, if yours does not come with an instruction paper, you can search boost guage install on dsmtuners.com or yahoo or google.


BUT BY ALL MEANS DO NOT TRY TO FIX THE STOCK GUAGE, YOU WILL NEVER KNOW THE ACTUAL PSI READING.
