my turbo is making high pitch squeal happens from about 1k-1800rpm but getting a lil worse
at first i had no power loss but after driving like this a bit (over1k miles probably) now im getting a little power loss accelerating from lower speed and a decent loss at higher speeds and dont want to drive the truck anymore
starts fine and has no smoke on start or while driving... runs and drives fine save for the power loss im now experiencing
i took off intake and checked for shaft play and found none and spinning easily/freely
looked around y pipe and other areas for black soot and found no signs would think if i had leak/crack after 1k miles i would see a clear sign... also no excessive diesel fumes to speak of
checked hose from map sensor to intake manifold ... looked to be in good shape
looked at piping/turbo connections didnt notice anything
checked odb on forscan light only seeing p2285 icp sensor circuit low but no signs of that (starts and idles fine no misfires that ive noticed doesnt stall).... i cleared this code and didnt come back when re started
i was thinging the vgt solenoid / turbo actuator / wastegate whatever you want to call it ... i disconnected the wire going to it and started... squeal was gone.... hit gas pedal a couple times to like 2k rpm and seemed normal and no squeel... also i havent heard the wastegate dump extra boost and cant get it to dump such as accelerating then letting off gas quickly ... i havent driven with the wire disconnected yet
is it pretty much gauranteed the vgt solenoid is not good or is there other things i should check before i get a new one? can i drive with the wire disconnected until i install a new one and what can / will happen if i do drive with the wire disconnected
any help greatly appreciated ive uploaded some vids for future reference to anyone else and help in diagnosing
Sounds like you might need to check your EBP tube & sensor. I've read various threads on this subject & have seen conflicting info on whether the data from this sensor is just an inferred value or not.
