Welcome I'm Chris aka Moose
The first thing I need you to do is disconnect the wastegate controller and manually turn the valve to see if its binding?
-----------About me and Just Answer------------
I am in my upper 30's, have a wife and 2 sons. I farm, fish, hunt, build, and coach youth soccer. I work on anything with an engine, been to many schools and classes through my 12 years with the dealership to get trained and certified. I try the best I can to share what I know and or have access to with my customers. Please consider I base my questions and answers to you, solely on the information you give me since I am not there to see, smell, hear, touch, or test. I try my best to be here everyday starting at 3pm central. Rating an answer is required. Please let me know if your not pleased prior to rating or if you cannot rate me so I can try to help a different way. God Bless and have a great day.
I do not do phone car diag. He can though submit a phone request and someone else may call. Yes try lube and try to turn it to free it up. He may need to take it apart to clean the gunk out inside that is restricting its movement.
If you need dis-assembly steps let me know.
Keep in touch if needed, if I do not hear back from you and your rate my answer, Thank You
Thanks, ***** ***** numbers are stored now that this repair is done?
So the symptoms remain the same though. Not towing runs great. Towing not a drop of boost till 2000 rpms?
Can you compare the boost pressure manually to what the scan tool shows to see if the computer is reading the boost incorrect and controlling the waste gate incorrect.
You could buy both parts A and B and return the one not needed.
Unfortunately when your not able to do the diag and repairs, needing to use a shop to do those but getting information from me. It is going to take much longer. When the shop is not able to just diagnose and fix it themselves it will take much longer being your needing to try and seek help elsewhere. I do not know how to speed up the process being a 3rd wheel.
