No boost from my turbo

Hello I have an 89 Xr4ti. I cant seem to get any boost from the turbo. It spools up nicely and the waste gate seems fine in there a switch or valve that kicks in the boost?

    the gage (in the car) shows it will run up to max, is there another way to check it?

SOURCE: sunbird turbo kick out

When the fuel system can"t provide any more fuel it will cut off (similar to electronic speed cut) to save itself from leaning out. Its not a good idea to take that hose off as it will boost itself to death, it has no way of controling how much boost is run and it'll be a matter of what goes first, the engine or the turbo.

SOURCE: 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.

SOURCE: i need of a turbo waste gate on a 7.3 liter

Yes it will hurt the performance if yo do anything wire the waste gate shut. however the waste gate is on the inside of the turbo unless you have a special turbo that is not stock.

SOURCE: no spool and wastegate wont open

I dont think anyone can hear the wastegate open. It opens when there is overboost and just routes exhaust around the turbo You may have heard the over boost valve open and release pressure., but normally, it doesnt open unless there is a problem with the waste gate. Its like a back up in case the waste gate is bad, or disconnected. Does the engine have the same amount of power as it always has? If so everything should be OK.

cute no year, no country stated then posts to usa forum.
we dont have this car. here. i think.
so are you asking how to diagnose turbo issues, on fixya
that be like asking how to do brain surgery on , Mr, PHIL
the PCM may see the boost too low for load and RPM.
so, that can be lots of things, besides a bad turbo cant spool.
even a stuck open waste gate.
or controls issues,
best is to get a complex car serviced, by someone that can work complex turbo diesels,

if serious on DIY, why not buy the book on the car
the FSM
then see the turbo section and do the tests stated there.
if that sounds hard, it is,

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

Turbo / Boost Issues


Sounds like a faulty boost pressure sensor or waste gate. I would check the waste gate first. Sounds like it is opening to soon and letting the boost out, than regaining again.

Subaru impreza turbo intercooler drives like normal 2l but has no boost?


I would start looking at your boost control valve and vacuum lines going to your turbos waste gate, as well as the recirc/bypass valve. Usually when cars don't boost they have either stuck open waste gates or recirc valves. Or something is blocking the boost control valve from releasing the waste gate. Also make sure that all your intake hose clamps are tight so they are not releasing boost prematurely.

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 turbo won't boost its starts to shake and pull back


Check out all your air hoses and clamps and check the turbo itself to make sure it spins freely. (Engine not running)
