Lost All Boost Turbo Not Spooling

Recommended Posts

Hey guys new to the forum and to forced induction cars.

Heres the problem as of yesterday i am back to driving na as turbo not spooling. No noise is coming from turbo at all.

Before you say take it to a mechanic, No

I work 6am-6pm 7days a week. Lol plus i would like to learn

Anyways could it be a vaccum hose, leak in intercooler or turbo inlet hose ?

Any ideas ? What do i look for?

I have no ideas where the vaccum hoses go from/to

Where are the 2 pipes supposed to go that come from the boost solenoid

Thanks for listening to my long winded speel.

Some help would be great

Yes It could be a vacuum hose.

if it happened all of sudden after a pop! sound.Check your Intercooler and the pipes that join there.

A popped vacuum hose won't loose all boost

A popped cooler pipe will.

A popped cooler pipe it won't drive at all.... Sounds like it's still running and driving, just nothing from the turbo?

Is it a stock turbo? What boost?

Indeed.

And as above, popped cooler hose = car wont drive.

So if it's driving, logical to deduce that turbo has failed

Popped many cooler pipes and still able to drive the car, runs like shit but still drive OK in the no boost area of the map.

My money is on an exited turbine wheel too.

They'll run without boost pipework but the mixtures are way wrong, will be very rich.

AFM is sending flow info to the ecu which is way out of whack with what the engine's actually eating.

The more boot you give it the worse it becomes.

Time for a call to Stao.

R32 GTR runs without the IC pipe like an NA (Maf less). Quite fine

R34 GTT runs like an NA (slightly worse) with the Turbo rooted. No boosting..

R32 GTSt runs like shit with IC pipe popped off.

likely a high flow is your best option

When my 32R popped an intercooler hose, the car ran but ran really shit. Still sort of driveable.

When my GTS-t dropped a turbine wheel (turbo exhaust wheel), the engine ran fine but no boost, so was slow and running super rich.

When my 32 dropped the front turbine down the exhaust it drove fine but made absolutely no boost.

Not true at all. Every car is different and depends on each situation, when they pop the silicone may force everything back into close to the position it should be, other times or won't. My car still drove fine on light load with popped cooler pipe. Enough to get me the few km home no worries.

Pulled the circlip off this morning and the flap opens and closes no issues.

With the circlip back on I am able to move the full arm and flap with pliers -

 

took intake pipe off and turbo spins freely by hand -

Is that with the heatshield on or off? I've seen the stock heatshield lay up against the actuator rod and stop it moving fore-aft.
