Sounds like vacuum leak anywhere in the system. Check all hoses and even brake booster for leaks. Use a vacuum gauge if you have one.

    Have you used a boost gauge to insure you really are making boost?

Hi! I have Ford-S-max 2.5T 2008. How pressure I need to setting actuator to open wastegate?


the waste gate will be open when the engine doesn't require boost and will be pre set by the ecu, over boost will result in the engine going into limp mode

Just accelarates slowly from stand still


engine lack power on take off.this is possible causes peugeot cars has diesel and gasoline engine.lack of take off power could be problem with the turbocharger wastegate sticking partially closed.check wastegate linkages stuck due to rust and carbon build up.check to see if vacuum going to waste gate actuator.replace stop up air filter and fuel filter will cause power lost and check transmission fluid.low transmission fluid level will cause car to have slow take off.because transmission slipping.

I have an external wastegate with a 7psi spring and a blow off valve on my 96 turbo gsr and it still goes up to over 20psi how do i stop the boost getting so high. also it is a brand new top of the line...


The waste gate valve is there to dump the "extra" boost air direct to the engine thus bipassing the turbo. Remove and clean the gate valve; In all likelyhood is is stuck open.

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.

1996 subaru legacy rs boost loss


I don't know much about Subaru but I expect the turbo wastegate is controlled by vacuum which is switched by the engine management system.

In the old days the turbo wastegate was normally closed and the manifold pressure was fed into a servo which opened the gate at the predetermined pressure.

The new way of doing things is to have the wastegate normally open and the turbo producing no pressure until the engine management decides the time is right and it switches a vacuum supply to a vacuum servo which then closes the wastegate. With this system the wastegate is constantly moving and so is unlikely to give trouble though the vacuum servo sometimes leaks and vacuum lines give trouble.

A fellow I know had a similar problem where the engine check light would light up and he would lose performance. In theory this was because of an overboost condition but the repair shop after fiddling around with it for a week fitted a new EGR valve to produce a cure.
