In your case the turbocharger is responsible for engine losing power.
The car goes in "limp home" mode!!!
Fault code: P0234-Turbocharger, engine boost condition - limit exceeded
1. Engine stopped and ignition switch off. Check all pneumatic connections and hoses between turbocharger actuator = pressure unit for boost-pressure control, boost-pressure control solenoid valve, vacuum reservoir, EGR control solenoid valve, intake-manifold flap solenoid valve, EGR valve with throttle - part of intake manifold. Also the vacuum connection between tandem pump and brake booster. If you find something wrong replace parts. If not go to step 2.
2. Extract the hose of the turbocharger actuator = pressure unit for boost-pressure control part of turbocharger. Instead of the original hose you must place another 1 meter long hose with the same inside diameter, and then you check to inspire yourself the air from the other one extremity of this hose. The mechanical connecting rod of the turbocharger actuator must have a smooth and whole motion. If you can do that with your mouth, then you must replace the boost-pressure control solenoid valve. If you can not reach this with your mouth, then you go to step 3.
3. This is the most difficult work. The problem is that the soot particles deposits inside the turbocharger plugging the variable nozzle geometry mechanism = adjustable vanes of the turbine. If the turbocharger actuator is not able to adjust the turbine vanes the charge air pressure increase too much and ECU (engine control unit) go in "limp mode" = engine protection software. As a result the "limp home" mode engine still running until you turn the engine off (ignition switch off) and back on when the "limp mode" is deactivated, but the fault still remain in ECU memory!
4. You must be able to extract the turbo from the engine and then to disassemble the turbocharger, clean inside adjustable vanes mechanism and refit all.

What is the P0234 code on my 2005 pt criuser


P0234 over boost condition has occcurred. press the helpful button
The symptoms displayed for a P0234 code will depend on the cause of the overboost condition: The service engine soon or check engine light will illuminate. You will experience a loss of power. The engine may show signs of overheating. The transmission may show signs of overheating and harsh shifting. Additional codes associated with the condition set by P0234 may be present to help identify the cause. Codes are available for all electrical components utilized by the engine management computer for the control of boost levels. The engine may display signs of pre-ignition in the form of knocking. The engine may display ignition misfiring.

On the audi a4 2003 what are the codes P 0135 and P0234?


Code P0135 -
Oxygen O2 Sensor Heater Circuit Malfunction (Bank1, Sensor1)

P0135. Turbo boost pressure too high.

O2 sensor heater malfunction: ...Check all fuses. If good, replace O2 sensor.

Over boost: Check N75 Boost control solenoid and all vacuum hoses to and from N75.

Code p0234


P0234 Description
The boost pressure sensor responds to pressure changes in the intake manifold. This pressure is created by the turbocharger and changes with accelerator pedal position (APP) and engine speed. The engine control module (ECM) uses this information to assist in diagnosis of the barometric pressure (BARO) sensor and to provide engine overboost protection. The boost pressure sensor has a 5-volt reference circuit, a low reference circuit, and a signal circuit. The engine control module (ECM) supplies 5 volts to the boost pressure sensor on the 5-volt reference 2 circuit, and provides a ground on a low reference circuit. The boost pressure sensor provides a signal to the ECM on a signal circuit relative to the pressure changes. The ECM monitors the boost pressure sensor signal for voltage outside of the normal range. The ECM calculates a predicted value for the boost pressure sensor. The ECM then compares the predicted value to the actual signal.

sensor failing or coming lose and not being able to read engine movement i think they have sensors for tdc and bdc so would check them.on petrol engine they are cam and crank sensors. they fail and sometime don't though up a code until completly gone and then the engine will not start.

Vauxhall code p0234


Code Relates to turbo boost pressure presume your astra is a turbo deisel.
Tip replace the pipe from the bottom of the intercooler to the top of the engine with a silicon one as these deteriorate and leak causing the engine to go into limp mode due to reduced turbo boost pressure.

Turbo overboost po234. how to correct?


p0234 is engine over boost condition. According to Volvo P0234 is a turbo control valve. Maybe a wiring issue?
Did you do a hard reset after clearing the code? hope this helps!
