    Default Boost on CDTI 120

    screenshot.jpg
    Hello

    Is my turbo ******ed? What should the boost be at 2000 revs?

    Much higher than 1.1 psi?

    Thanks

    Steve

    If no boost or goes off boost while driving, check boost pressure sensor hoses. The 2-4mm hoses in front of engine. My brother in law had boost issue. I took a look and found flexi rubber hose has split! I replaced it with my silicone 2mm bore hose. Just a thought to jump the boat before u explain why u are investigating the issue if any :-)

    One of the reasons they stopped putting oil pressure gauges in cars years ago, and some cars don't have temp gauges now........

    Just something else to worry about

    Some of those apps are quirky an not to be trusted as 100% correct.

    Ha - nah had the ap for a while to check for fault codes, but the car seems slugish lately, I can hear the turbo working but don't seem to get the torque i used to. However i did not realise it had to be under load - which when i though about it makes sense. Repeated the test today on way to work and maxed out about 25psi.
