Customer Question
Vq25det, error code 1136...

Vq25det, error code 1136 but I suspect turbo has gone. car has 240000km on the clock

Mechanic's Assistant: How many miles are on the car? Do you have scan tool or a code reader?

150000 miles, got the ecu code by turning car on depressing accelator 5 times, wait 7 seconds etc method

Mechanic's Assistant: What year is your Turbo?

2001 (stagea VQ25DET)

Mechanic's Assistant: Are you fixing your Turbo yourself? What have you tried so far?

I'm not set up to do it myself unfortunately so I'm at the mercy of a mechanic. Car has no power or boost from what I can tell particularly up hill. Coil Pack, Cam Sensors and Oxygen Sensors have been changed with the last year etc. Cleaned Air filter and AFM with conatct cleaner

Mechanic's Assistant: Anything else you want the mechanic to know before I connect you?

I'm in Australia so I don't know if that makes a difference, also I've never been on Just Answers before so if this is paid service I wasn't aware and I do not want waste anyones time and effort

Mechanic's Assistant: JustAnswer requires a modest payment. You'll see the amount on the next page. It's way less expensive than face-to-face would cost. And you're covered by our 100% satisfaction guarantee.

Okay thank you, ***** ***** considered a modest payment? I'm not sure the variant of engine I have is common or even availble in the US so I maybe just wasting your energy and time?

Have you conducted a compression test, with all spark plugs out?

Do you have a boost gauge fitted, and if so, is the boost pressure normal or low?

Any mods done to the car?

What model is your car?

I'm in Brisbane, Australia.
