    Default Boost sensor

    right i just cleaned my boost sensor as my car has been going into limp home on the odd occasion when uphill in a high gear..... anyways took it out and wow..... it was covered in gunk... i mean you could see the little sensor it was that bad so cleaned it up (gently) and dried and re-fitted anyway just took the car for a spin and its fine no limp home etc.. but it feels like a tad more power when boosting... could it have been running half hearted until now or is it more likley that its all in my head!

    Bit of both perhaps. A clean sensor will be giving the ECU better, more accurate info, so it ought to go a bit better.

    yep, dirty sensors will never help... a little gentle clean always works wonders..
