Sleepy Td5

Recommended Posts

so my td5 crew cab seems to always be very unresponsive when i start her up in the morning almost as if she doesn't have a turbo (which points me toward the airflow sensor) and then after irritating me sufficiently (after 2-3 minutes) she starts pulling nicely.

any tips or ideas where to look to start fixing this?

2001 Td5

EGR has been bypassed

everything else pretty standard.

Before running out and buying a new part you can try cleaning it.

Spray it with brake cleaner, let dry and re fit.

These get dirty over time and need cleaning on a regular basis.

There are a lot of posts out there that suggest cleaning damages them. If broken already you have nothing to lose, but I wouldn't touch one without a problem for fear of causing one.
