Turbo not boosting opel corsa 1.7dti club bakkie


In the old days the turbo would boost as soon as the engine speed was sufficiently high and any over pressure would be dumped by a relief valve or controlled by a wastegate.



In these modern times of electronics the turbo wastegate is normally open instead of normally closed so there is no automatic boost. The engine management system decides when there will be boost and how much boost there will be.



Turbo chargers are amazingly reliable unless they are abused or there has been foreign matter ingress. When looking for the cause of no boost it is wise to disconnect the intake trunking and turn the compressor vanes by hand to ensure all is well.



Disconnect the vacuum line to the wastegate servo and apply suction to the servo to ensure the servo, the linkage and wastegate is moving and in good order.



The next stage is to examine the vacuum line and connections back to source and then ensure the vacuum supply is adequate.



If all is found to be well with those physical checks the cause of no boost is either the failure of one of the vacuum switches (or the electrical wiring or connections to them) or a fault condition exists that has caused the engine management to decide not to provide turbo boost.



In that case diagnostic equipment will be needed.

What are the probable causes of DTCs C1226, C1222, C1221, C1233, C1232, C1291, P1106, and P1887?


DTC C1221 LF Wheel Speed Sensor Input Signal is 0
C1222 RF Wheel Speed Sensor Input Signal is 0
DTC C1226 RF Excessive Wheel Speed Variation
DTC C1232 LF Wheel Speed Circuit Open or Shorted
DTC C1233 RF Wheel Speed Circuit Open or Shorted
DTC C1291 Open Brake Lamp Switch Contacts During Deceleration
DTC C1291 detects an open brake switch. The EBCM looks for deceleration rates that may indicate braking action. The EBCM verifies braking action by repeating the method for finding deceleration rates that indicate braking action several times. In each case, the ABS will not be available because the EBCM does not see the brake switch input.
DTC P1106 Manifold Absolute Pressure (MAP) Sensor Circuit Intermittent High Voltage
DTC P1887 TCC Release Switch Circuit (3.4L)
DTC P1887 TCC Release Switch Circuit (2.4L)
The torque converter clutch (TCC) release switch is part of the automatic transmission fluid pressure (TFP) manual valve position switch. The TFP manual valve position switch is mounted to the transmission valve body. The TCC release switch is normally-closed.
The switch signals the PCM that the TCC is released. This is accomplished by torque converter release fluid pressure acting on the switch contact, thus opening the switch. When the voltage is high on the circuit, the PCM recognizes that the TCC is no longer engaged.
When the PCM determines that the TCC release switch is open (indicating that the TCC is not applied) and the TCC slip speed indicates that the TCC is applied, then DTC P1887 sets. DTC P1887 is a type B DTC.
You have all kind of problems , I suggest you take this to a qualified ASE certified repair shop that has the diagnostic tools to trouble shoot an repair the vehicle . Electrical testing is a must with open circuits an shorts ,plus hooking up a scan tool that reads sensor data .Not just a code reader like at the parts store . This video he has a Chrysler vehicle ,doesn't matter . Test is the same for all make an models !

Can car overheating cause transmission to not engage in any gears


no
the problem indicates that the torque converter clutch servo/ solenoid has failed and that is why there is no drive action on gear selection
over heating engines will cause transmission problems as the transmission oil cooler is in the radiator
by not attending to warning lights you are setting yourself for costly repairs and not having a compression test or cooling system pressure tests you are destine for long periods without transport

Problems with ford


And all it takes is to read the fault codes to determine what is wrong electronically. As for fuel economy -Fords have a problem with the hand brake action dragging on the rear brakes from seizing up from the weather. SO you course of action should be to read the fault codes and fix any sensor/solenoid/ servo found faulty
Have the brakes check out to ensure that there are no pads dragging. And have a pressure test done on the transmission to check for internal problems Have the bands and clutch packs adjusted and the oil changed

1998 dodge dakota 5.2L V8, I have 2nd and 3rd gear only with automatic transmission.


In the 1998 Dodge Dakota 5.2L V8 if you have only 2nd and 3rd gear with the auto transmission, the solenoid inside for shifting down to 1st gear is not functioning correctly.

A complete transmission rebuild is indicated in this situation, where all of the clutches and solenoids that are bad are replaced.

This involves tearing down the transmission after removing it from the vehicle, and; rebuilding it from the ground up.

Try to find a local transmission repair shop where they are certified to do this kind of work.
----
A basic description of the problem follows:
Servos/Accumulators The servos are hydraulic pistons and cylinders. They resemble the hydraulic actuators used on many other machines, such as bulldozers. Hydraulic fluid enters the cylinder, under pressure, and forces the piston to move to engage the band or clutches.
Servo operation tccs7015.gif

The accumulators are used to cushion the engagement of the servos. The transmission fluid must pass through the accumulator on the way to the servo. The accumulator housing contains a thin piston, which is sprung away from the discharge passage of the accumulator. When fluid passes through the accumulator on the way to the servo, it must move the piston against spring pressure, and this action smoothes out the action of the servo.
Hydraulic Control System The hydraulic pressure used to operate the servos comes from the main transmission oil pump. This fluid is channeled to the various servos through the shift valves. There is generally a manual shift valve, which is operated by the transmission selector lever, and a shift valve for each up shift the transmission provides.
Most automatic transmissions are electronically controlled; electrical solenoids are used to control the hydraulic fluid. The shift solenoids are regulated by an electronic control module. Shift timing is regulated through sensor feedback information provided to the electronic controller.
On older transmissions there are two pressures that control the shift valves. One is the governor pressure which is affected by vehicle speed. The other is the modulator pressure which is affected by intake manifold vacuum or throttle position. Governor pressure rises with an increase in vehicle speed, and modulator pressure rises as the throttle is opened wider. By responding to these two pressures, the shift valves cause the up shift points to be delayed with increased throttle opening to make the best use of the engine's power output.
Older transmissions also make use of an auxiliary circuit for downshifting. This circuit may be actuated by the throttle linkage, vacuum that actuates the modulator, or by a cable or solenoid. It applies pressure to the downshift surface on the shift valve or valves.
The transmission modulator also governs the line pressure, used to actuate the servos. In this way, the clutches and bands will be actuated with a force matching the torque output of the engine.

Speed Control The speed control system consists of the following components:
  • anti-lock brake control module
  • brake pedal position (BPP) switch
  • clutch pedal position (CPP) switch or jumper
  • deactivator switch
  • speed control actuator switches
  • speed control servo
  • speed control actuator cable
  • speed control indicator
  • brush assembly (Motorhome vehicles only)
  • control and spring brush assembly (Motorhome vehicles only)
  • Principles of Operation
    The speed control system is designed to maintain vehicle speed above 40 km/h (25 mph). After the ON switch is depressed, depressing the SET/ACCEL or COAST switch will activate the speed control servo. To increase a set speed, either depress and hold for continuous acceleration, or momentarily tap the SET/ACCEL switch for 1.6 km/h (1 mph) acceleration increments. To decrease a set speed, depress and hold the COAST switch until the target speed is reached, or momentarily tap the COAST switch for 1.6 km/h (1 mph) deceleration increments. When the speed control system has been disabled by tapping the brake pedal, the RESUME switch can be depressed and the vehicle will return to the original set speed if the vehicle is traveling over 40 km/h (25 mph) and the OFF switch has not been depressed.
    NOTE: The deactivator switch is provided as an additional safety feature. Normally, when the brake pedal is depressed, an electrical signal from the brake lamp circuit to the speed control servo will deactivate the system. Under increased brake pedal effort, the deactivator switch will open and remove power to the speed control servo, releasing the throttle independently of the speed control servo.
    NOTE: The air bag sliding contact provides the electrical interface between the steering column wiring and the speed control actuator switches in the steering wheel.
    The inputs to the speed control servo are:
    • vehicle speed signal
    • speed control actuator switches
    • brake pedal position (BPP) switch
    • clutch pedal position (CPP) switch (if equipped)
    • deactivator switch
    The outputs of the speed control servo are:
    • speed control indicator (Excursion and Super Duty)
    • speed control cable controlling the throttle position
    Inspection and Verification
    NOTE: If any concerns are noted with the speedometer or horn, address those concerns by referring to their associated sections before continuing speed control diagnosis.
    NOTE: When in speed control mode, initial depression of the clutch pedal may cause a normal momentary increase of engine rpm.
    NOTE: If the vehicle is a diesel, refer to the Powertrain Control/Emissions Diagnosis (PC/ED) manual.
    1. Verify the customer concern by operating the speed control system.
    1. Visually inspect for obvious signs of mechanical and electrical damage.


    Visual Inspection Chart Mechanical Electrical
    • Speed control cable
    • Speed control cable not attached to throttle
    • Central junction box (CJB) Fuse:
      • 6 (15A) (Excursion)
      • 8 (10A) (Motorhome)
      • 13 (20A) (Excursion, Super Duty)
      • 15 (5A) (Super Duty, Excursion)
      • 28 (10A) (Super Duty, Motorhome)
    • Speed control actuator switches
    • Brake pedal position (BPP) switch
    • Clutch pedal position (CPP) switch (if equipped)
    • Deactivator switch
    • Speed control servo
    • Wiring
    • Loose, corroded, or dirty connections
    • Bulb (Excursion and Super Duty)

    1. If the fault is not visually evident, go to the Self-Test Diagnostics - Excursion or Super Duty (Excursion, Super Duty), or verify the symptom and proceed to the Symptom Chart (Motorhome).
    2. Self-Test Diagnostics - Excursion, Super Duty
      WARNING: This test is a key on engine off (KOEO) test only that is conducted in park only with emergency brake fully engaged.
      1. Enter Self-Test Diagnostics by depressing the speed control OFF switch while turning the ignition key ON, making sure the engine does not start and is not running. The speed control indicator on the instrument panel will flash once to indicate that speed control module entered the diagnostic mode. FIVE ADDITIONAL FLASHES AT THIS POINT INDICATE A DEFECTIVE SPEED CONTROL SERVO. Release the OFF switch.
      1. Press the remaining switches in this sequence: ON, RESUME, COAST and SET/ACCEL.
        IF THE "ON" SWITCH IS NOT DEPRESSED WITHIN FIVE SECONDS AFTER ENTERING THE DIAGNOSTICS MODE, THE MODULE TIMES OUT AND THE PROCEDURE MUST BE STARTED OVER.
        The speed control indicator lamp will flash as each switch is depressed. Press each switch in the sequence immediately after the indicator light goes out for the previous switch.
      1. A lamp flash with the last button (SET/ACCEL) indicates that the STATIC test passed. If the lamp does not flash with the last button and there are no additional flashes of the lamp, the switch is defective.
        If the lamp does not flash with the last button, and additional flashes occur, follow the chart below for trouble codes:
      • 2 Flashes - BPP defective, circuit is defective, brake applied, CPP switch or jumper (if equipped).
      • 3 Flashes - Deactivator switch is open or circuit defective.
      • 4 Flashes - Vehicle speed signal is out of range or circuit is defective.
      1. Immediately after the STATIC test, the speed control servo does a DYNAMIC test by automatically actuating the throttle lever from 8 mm (0.315 in) to 12 mm (0.472 in) of travel from the idle position. During the DYNAMIC throttle pull, observe throttle movement to witness any binding or sticking of the speed control cable and correct connection of speed control cable to throttle lever. Make sure the THROTTLE RETURNS BACK TO IDLE POSITION.
      1. Return ignition switch to the OFF position and proceed to the Symptom Chart.

Does this car require ceramic brake pads?


NO it does not require ceramic brakes. The ceramic brakes are just a different option to the type of brake pads available out on the market.
The ceramic brakes uses ceramic which helps keep the wheels cleaner. Ceramic brakes has less brake dust then conventional brake pads like the Semi metallic brake pads which leave more brake dust on the the wheels.
Note though that ceramic brake pads are harder and last longer with less brake fade then the conventional brake pads. The only thing about the ceramic is that they don't work as good as the conventional brake pads till the heat up during hard braking.
In short the difference between the two, ceramic last longer but you go through replacing your rotor every time you replace your brake pads and there is no brake fade but weak till they heat up.
Semi Metallic brake pads almost last as long, and leave more coating of brake dust on your wheels. Your rotor will last longer and great brakes and will have a slight brake fade when over heated from hard stopping from hight speeds.
Thank you for using fixya and be safe.

Stalls or wants to turn off when pushing brakes


Check for vacuum leak within power brake servo unit.
Remove vacuum hose from brake servo and block off the open vacuum line from the engine. Check that engine then runs normally when brakes applied.
Do not drive the vehicle with the vacuum servo disconnected, as the brakes may not be effective. - The pedal pressure required to apply the brakes effectively may exceed your capabilities.

If the brake booster servo diaphragm is leaking it will need to be replaced/repaired.
