I DON'T THINK THERE ARE ANY CODES(WOULD THAT TURN ON THE CHECK ENGINE LIGHT? IT IS NOT ON) I WILL LOOK AT HOSES IN FRONT TOMORROW, ITS AN ECONOLINE SO I WAS WORKING FROM THE BACK WHEN I REMOVED,REBUILT AND REPLACED THE TURBO AND DIDN'T CHECK UP FRONT. MY DEALER TOLD ME THAT THE TRUCK ONLY HAD 3 POUNDS BOOST WHEN I TOOK IT TO HIM(AND IT IS SUPPOSED TO HAVE 15?) HE SAID MY EXHAUST MANIFOLD WAS LEAKING ,SO HE RETORQED IT AND GOT THE BOOST TUP TO 8LBS., GAVE IT BACK AND SAID THE TURBO NEEDS REPLACED FOR $1100.00. I CHECKED THE WORK AND FOUND THE MANIFOLD STILL LEAKING (WITH NO GASKET??, I THOUGHT THAT IT WAS ODD THAT THERE WASN'T A GASKET SO I WENT TO THE LOCAL PARTS AND ASKED, THEY SOLD ME GASKETS AND I INSTALLED THEM AND TOOK CARE OF THE LEAK,BUT THAT DIDN'T SOLVE MY PROBLEM.) IS IT NORMAL FOR THERE TO BE NO EXHAUST MANIFOLD GASKETS ?
My wife just asked me why I was shouting? Didn"t know caps lock was on until most of this was typed, she said to apologize, sorry, I'm a forum rookie...
