dasterdly Posted July 26, 2006 Share Posted July 26, 2006 evening, i am convinced that my 110 200 tdi defender is down on power, and i am thinking its maybe turbo - waste gate actuator related. she's done 146000 miles. i have replaced the intercooler hoses,cleaned the intercooler and fitted a new lift pump. the injector pump hasnt been touched,until i can asertain if the turbo etc is ok. there is a small amount of movement on the turbo shaft, but how much is acceptable or normal i dont know ? i have ruled out the injectors at this stage until i check the turbo. there is always quite alot of turbo lag, especially going uphill. i have the usual puff of black smoke on start up, but then nothing after that, the air cleaner hoses and intercooler hoses have a trace of oil, but thats probaly normal i guess. 1 ) can anybody tell me how to check the waste gate actuator to ensure its working correctly ? (independant of the turbo ? ) 2 ) whats the correct standard turbo boost pressure for my 200 tdi defender ? ( 0.84 bar ? ) 3 ) would i get a new waste gate actuator with a new turbo ? or is it a seperate item ? 4 ) what happens if i adjust the waste gate actuator rod ? TIA.. cheers...
