Wastegate sticking

I was wondering if anyone had an trouble with the wastegate sticking. I put an EGR delete kit in about a month ago. The check engine light came on and the code is 2622 I think. Anyways it starts off sluggish for the first minute and the kind of clears it's self out. Only has about 80 per. of the power it should have any help would be grateful. Thanks, Dustin

no wastegate on a 6.0. it uses a vgt turbo (variable geometry turbocharger). veins inside are moved by a unison rings which is control by the vgt solenoid on the turbo. the rings and veins commonly get carbonded and rusted up and start sticking/binding. your boost can be low or high depending on when and where it is sticking. best bet it to remove thte turbo, seperate the 2 housings and inspect the veins and unison ring. if the housing, actuator arm and unison ring are ok, then simply cleaning the assembly up, getting the rust and carbon removed and reassemble it should ttake care of the problem. the p2262 is Turbo/Super Charger Boost Pressure Not Detected — Mechanical .

Thanks for the info. I dont think that was the code that was thrown. Does this sound like it's the vgt or possibly something else.

Did you replace your EGR cooler because it was leaking? If that was the case your vanes could be rusted. This happend to my brother's 6.0. He would have low boost no power until it warmed up even then not all the power was there.

I think the code you are referring to is the lack of flow through the EGR valve. I know with late model 04's and up you have to have flow through the EGR valve or you will throw a code.
