Do Not Sell My Personal Information

Cause of Low boost problem identified. Turbo actuator

Recommended Posts

Hi Chaps

2007 1.8 tdci focus

Following the kind guidance of you guys and the info available, I believe I have found the cause of my low boost fault code.

(I am not a mechanic!). After doing all the checks recommended I eventually found that there appears to be nothing attached to the turbo solenoid and using an endoscope )off ebay) I looked lower down at the turbo and found the lever for the waste gate? with noting attached.

So the next question is can I get a replacement arm (or make one) to effect a repair. All guidance appreciated.

Just to close this out. I was lucky enough to get another actuator arm from an old turbo. \\\\once fitted the car is running perfectly. \\\\\\\\\\\\\\\map now peaking at 240kpa and car very responsive.
