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.

Why does my 420a 96 eclipse idle high at 2k and after running It goes up 4k idle? It has a miss fire and smells of gas when running. I have trouble codes p1294, p0443, p0340 any suggestion?


p0340 is the cam sensor, 0443 is the purge solenoid, 1249 is the wastegate on the turbo. The smell could be from 0443, it might be the solenoid on the evaporative system is bad or stuck, the cam error could be the sensor, wiring or the cam itself and the wastegate is the part of the turbo that dumps the excess compressed air that the engine does not need.

2006 Ford Taurus. P0172. System too rich. Bank 1. Rough idle and starts hard when warm. Smell of gas. Misfires on cylinder 1,2and 3.


Check for spark at the wires leading into the cylinders that are misfiring. If you don't have spark, you may have a bad coil if you have one coil that runs all the cylinders. If you do have spark, you may have leaking injectors that are dumping fuel which is causing a rich condition. Check your spark plugs and see if they are wet. That may help in determining a leaking injector. Hope this helps. Good luck.

For a complete wiring diagram Refer to Section 8W.

When Monitored: When the ignition is on.
Set Condition: The ECM detects an open or short circuit in the Wastegate solenoid circuit.

Possible Causes
DAMAGED WIRING HARNESS OR CONNECTORS
WASTEGATE SOLENOID

ECM
INTERMITTENT CONDITION

Always perform the Pre-Diagnostic Troubleshooting procedure before proceeding. (Refer to 9 - ENGINE - DIAGNOSIS AND TESTING)

Diagnostic Test
1. DAMAGED WIRING HARNESS OR CONNECTORS

zjlimited_338.gif

Turn Ignition off.
Disconnect the ECM harness connectors.

Reconnect the disconnected Wastegate Solenoid harness connector.
Turn the Ignition on, engine not running.
Disconnect the Wastegate Solenoid harness connector.
Connect an incandescent test light across the supply and driver pins at the Wastegate Solenoid harness connector.

NOTE: The ECM will perform a self check of the circuit after approximately 30 seconds, which should light the incandescent test light.


Does the light illuminate brightly after 30 seconds of being connected?

Yes
Replace the Wastegate Solenoid.
Perform POWERTRAIN VERIFICATION TEST VER - 1 (DIESEL).

No
Go To 3


3. (F504) FUSED IGNITION SWITCH OUTPUT OPEN

Lose throttle response on 02 3500 w/ cummins


sounds to me that the accelerator pedal is bad if its an electronic pedal. youll know if its electronic or not by looking at the pedal if you see a set of wires or a wire harness plug into it then its electronic. if it is check the wires to make sure that they havent worked themselves loose if they are ok and the truck runs fine other wise then im leaning toward the pedal being bad another possibility is the injection pump it could be loosing suction because of a bad diaphram or bushing but id try the pedal first its the cheaper route.

What is a wastegate on 2004 dodge 5.9L cummins diesel?


The wastegate is a valve that regulates the ammount of boost that you turbocharger produces. The wastegate opens to release boost pressure.
This valve is electronicly controlled based on inputs to the onboard computer.

Whaen car idles its fine but when driving it sputters an when it builds boost it blows the intake pipe off the throttle body an oil comes out of the throttle body


in your car the air ventilation system is freeze up causing a build up of pressure which caused the oil to burst out. there is the mosture sludge build up under the oil fill cap . its advisable to clean everything up and then check out by starting the car. also spray crab cleaner in the throttle body and check out. as per me the problem is causing because of :-- I guess the breather vent tube was full of oil - frozen in there somehow. Must have to do with that sludge buildup on my oil fill cap. This is the one coming off the front on the left side of the oil filter. It goes down under the engine. This blockage caused a pressure buildup in the crankcase which caused oil to blow by the pistons and into the combustion chamber and out into the air intake hose and throttle body. get the spark plugs removed and cleaned up all the oil. The reason it sputter is because of all the oil in the combustion chamber. No air could get in. get the oil change and insulate the breather pipe in case of future freeze ups. This will help. Thanks please keep updated.please do rate the solution positively .thank you for using fixya
