winter turbo issue.. want to fix before the snow flies!!
The problem is any time it gets below 0 degrees F my turbo seems to shut its self off. Any time you let off the throttle long enough to loose boost you darn near need to rug it to get it to spool then watch out cause your gonna be sideways!! A couple people told me it might need to be cleaned but it didn't help a guy i know (same issue).
I'm wondering if its a sensor somewhere since its only temp related???
If it was vanes sticking you would think it would do it when engine is cold in the summer because the turbo has to be warmer when up to temp driving down the road in winter vs summer time driving it when its not warmed up and only say 60 degrees.
Any help would be appreciated. Thanks.
