Thread: Boost gauge stopped working...

  1. #1

    Default Boost gauge stopped working...

    The other day driving along and I noticed my boost gauge had stopped working. Strange as the dial and backlight was still on. So the electrics were ok, just not reading the 'boost' & 'vacuum'

    So got home and took a look around the back of the engine to find the 'T' piece (connector) had broken off. In fact it looked mangled, like it had been twisted back and forth and broken off.

    Courtenay Sport did this job when they rerouted my boost feed, so I never saw the original 'T' piece connector or condition of it.

    Would this have caused my car to have less boost, if it was leaking.

    The reason I say that is because I fixed it with a new 'T' piece connector and today it felt more powerful. Noticeably more power.

    ??? Anyone got any idea's if I had been losing boost because of this little £1.50 connector??

    Yes it would have caused issues... and the turbo would have been working a lil harder to make boost pressure. good thing the gauge stopped working as boost/vac leaks can sometimes be a nightmare to find.
