I will do that fist thing tomorrow, I have been searching the forum and think I have found the issue, the turbo vanes are stuck. Is there a way to test this?
Ok, here is my reasoning.........the boot (rubber hose slight bend and about 4 inches long) off the turbo supplying air to the intercooler was cracked and I was losing a ton of boost. I ended up driving this way for about two days while looking for someone who had the part which is $90 at my local stealership. With this being said I believe the vanes were being pushed to their limit as to were they normally travel in the unison ring, this might cause them to reach an area on the turbo that would cause them to bind and would cause all the issues I have been having, ie. good at low end but starts to fart and smoke the higher the RPM's. Does this logic seem viable to anyone else?
Is there anyway to get them to move again, I dont think it would happen again if I could just get it to move this one time.
How long am I looking at to take the turbo off and give it a good cleaning? Yes, I know this can vary alot but what has been your (anyones) experience?
