Question about Dodge Sprinter

3 Answers

I have a 2006 Dodge Sprinter 2500. It has been great.Now it is making a whoshing sound during acceleration. It sounds like a vaccum hose. Though no problem with acceleration, milage, or exhaust. And, no dash lights are coming on. (1) Is this the begining of an infamous turbo problem? (2) Should I start looking for a new turbo? (3) Should I stop driving my work van?

    Is this a problem that I can identify without taking it to a garage? Since it only happens on acceleration it would be hard for me to locate? I have found vaccum hose leaks on cars but usually they are fairly obvious, generally, just a small tube has come loose.

The turbo resonator is starting to fail, a common problem with the Dodge Sprinter 2500. Check the intake hose which is under high boost pressure to see if it "came off" the stock resonator. If your intake hose is secure then you can continue to drive the van but it will eventually go into limp mode and you will then have to tow it home or to a repair shop.

You can still drive it. Even if the turbo didn't work, it should still drive. Usually th suction noise is just air getting sucked in the intake unless you have a vacuum leak somewhere

Sounds to me like your thermostat is stuck open. Replace that and your problems should be fixed. Cheap fix as well.

My 06 2500 Sprinter is lazy - had it checked and the shop tells me the complete turbocharger needs replacement because the boost control solenoid is broken. Is it true that the solenoid cannot be replaced...


You do not have to replace complete turbo for VAG solenoid problem, you can buy it separately, but first test you VAG unit, behind your right side head light, 2 narrow hoses at top, one narrow hose at bottom, disconnect bottom hose and block the hose with your finger to check for suction while your buddy pressing accelerator pedal a little bit, if suction there, check turbo and turbos attachments
