i have a loud hissing noise after installing an EGR delete kit
i also need to have this fixed by wednesday..going on vacation
so you put the whole delete kit on
removed the turbo
yes..new up pipe, block off plate, and new 180 degree pipe that replaces the old cooler
What has happened is that the turbo is not seated all the way on the Y -pipe. Take the clamp off where on the drivers sde exhaust that goes to the turbo. It must be flush. You may have to take the turbo back off and move the turbo mount some to line it up
I have had this happen to me all the time
so its the "Y" pipe to the turbo and not the pipe to the drivers side exhaust manifold?? and the truck is not building up boost at all
The drivers side pipe is called the Y-pipe
The reason you are not building boost is because of the exhaust leak
ok..i had my dad helping me and while i was tightening the exhaust manifold bolts from underneath he was putting on the clamp to the turbo!! so just loosen up all clamps and bolts and retry??
Make sure you tighten the turbo clamp first.
Take the clamp loose and se if there is a gap
ok..i think thats where are mistake was..tighten the turbo clamp first then tighten the manifold bolts?? is it necessary to loosen the big exhaust clamp to the turbo or those manifold bolts??
loosen the clamp to the ypipe and see if there is a gap
if so try to push it on with a pry bar
if that does not work then take the bolts loose at the bottom and tighten the top clamp first when the pipe is flush
If the pipe will not line up then the turbo mount is on the wrong position. you may ave to take the turbo off and re-position the mount
ok sounds easy enough..lol!! for any reason if that does not work is there anything else to check for??
check the other clamps. make sure all is flush
The -pipe is the most common
ok..i knew there was a problem when my check engine light never came on after the instructions for the kit said it would!!
thank u very much for the info..i hope its an easy fix..not time consumming
it might still come on as the egr is deleted
Its not that bad of a fix
been doing them for a long time
ur right but i dont wanna have to take all the intake pipes and other stuff back off!! im done with engine mods after this is fixed!!
cool. Im 99 percent sure its the Y-pipe
alright man well i appreciate all uve done on a sunday evening!! have a good one
u to and good luck
