Jeep grand cherokee V6 with Mb diesel engine losing power under acceleration trouble code description turbo boosting to low.


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,

When driving my 1997 Audi A 4 1.8t there is a loss of power around 3000 rpm, what could be causing the issue?


run the fault codes and look for a problem area in the vane actuator of the turbo
it could be a sensor problem or a MAP sensor problem
this is indicated by the pressures being generated or not generated by a turbo generating pressure from the throttle opening on acceleration or held at constant speed

Is it ok for my boost gauge to run a 3 to5 goin down the highway 05 impala ss


boost pressure is related to exhaust temperature . so if you are not under load then the accelerator position will only allow the fuel that is required and so the boost will be reacting accordingly. If you suddenly accelerate and the boost goes up then the turbo is doing the job. If it stays the same then look for boost leaks in hoses and air cooler. waste gate settings or faulty turbo.

F350 truck - loss of power feels like not all cylinders are on the go and **** load of black smoke blowing out of exhaust. HELP PLEASE


suspect a bad turbo, alot of black smoke comes out exhaust,suggest you check for oil loss on dip stick, also check for bad oil cooler. but most likely a bad turbo,when the turbo goes bad the turbo door shuts and the engine sucks oil up,and the engine runs on the oil and fuel, but the oil cooler could be bad also.if you're loosing oil out the **ss then i suspect a bad turbo. simple,,, check your oil level after running the engine for a short distance. if the oil levels low, then your engines burning it. bad turbo. either thats it,or you've got bad piston rings. if the piston rings are bad, the engine will have to be rebuilt,or the engine rings will have to be replaced. but don't panic, the turbo is most likely you're issue. thank you for choosing fixya.com. i do however that you check with everyone,then put together a plan that saves you money in the longrun! that's what i would do myself. thank you for choosing fixya.com!!

There is loud whistling noise on my honda accord when accelerating.there is no power loss.black smoke or anything like that so i dont think is turbo.anybody got an idea what it could be?any help would be...


Hi,
Had a similar problem on my 06 accord, would recommend you check the air intake system. Loose parts tend to cause a whistle.
If your's is a diesel like mine, there is a plastic cover over the intake next to the radiator which can come loose.
Good Luck!
