boost gauge is sick

ok my boost gauge did work but recently it only builds to about 13 or so and gets stuck and once i let off the gas the boost suddenly drops...it seems to me like its stuck i've tryed somethings like knocking on the gauges while its stuck... i've checked my lines kinda half a$$ and i don't see any holes in the boost line everything looks good....i have dipricol optix gauges....any help would be great

Sorry we missed this thread......are you sure its not something else? Letting off the loud pedal and the gauge dropping is normal.....what boost were you seeing before?

sorry you miss understood me i would see about 25 or 26 now it goes it about 13 and gets stuck because it takes a second once i let off for it to fall down... but from 0-10 pounds it works fine but once i get on it for it to build 10+ is when i have the problems

I had the same problem with my autometers. My pyro and boost did the same thing. It's a bad gauge. Autometer is really good about warrantying their products though so I had no problems getting them replaced.
