wastegate

  1. Wastegate Found in Cat

    Volkswagen Passat B5 Discussion
    Several years back my turbo stopped working. Actually it hadn't been working very well for a few years, it was loose and jingling. Anyway, I found the wastegate a few years later when I replaced the downpipe. I can see why it wasn't working well even before it detached. It's actually worn oval.
  2. Turbocharger wastegate malfunction

    Volkswagen Passat B7 Discussion
    Hi, the wastegate on the turbo for my 2016 Passat R-line wont open on the Charge Air Pressure Actuator. It only clicks and heats up when the key is turned to "ON". Any idea as to why that happens and how to fix it.
  3. Faulty wastegate bypass regulator valve?

    New Member Introductions
    My daughter has a 2003 Passat that has recently been cutting off while idling. Usually it will restart, but recently it's had to sit for a period of time before I can restart it. I took it to Autozone and got a P0299 code which the guy said is the wastegate bypass regulator valve. Would this...
  4. Boost Leak? Gauge Leak? Broken Wastegate Flapper?

    Volkswagen Passat B5 Discussion
    Okay just picked up a 99 passat gls 1.8t 5 speed. 160k It came with a boost gauge, and a aftermarket BOV, its loud and makes the psshh noise (I know who cares) The boost gauge shits around 22 on the vacuum side, when under throttle i goes to 0 then when WOT it goes around 3 PSI. I noticed...
  5. Wastegate/Turbo question

    Volkswagen Passat B6 Discussion
    Hi, I hope I'm posting this in the right place...but I've searched this forum and didn't find my answer. I'm not very mechanical...but here is what I have a question on. I had a mechanic (out of warranty, so, tried here first) check out the p0299 code. They said the wastegate was bad...
  6. Broken wastegate.

    Volkswagen Passat B5 Discussion
    Hey, I figured out why I don't have boost. The wastegate flap broke. I think it is supposed to be welded onto the wastegate handle but I could just take it out. I'm not sure if this is suppose to be this way. The wastegate actuator seems to work and it takes a lot to push the wastegate open...
  7. Testing wastegate pressure question

    Volkswagen Passat B5 Discussion
    Just a quick question before I attempt this. I'm making an attempt to test the pressure at which my wastegate is set too. Almost everywhere I've searched has involved the removal of the turbo or downpipe but I just want a baseline via boost gauge or VAGCOM as to the peak pressure I would be...
  8. Repaired wastegate valve

    B5 Garage
    The wastegates often burn out, or the lever's bushing gets so worn that the valve doesn't seal. I've tried an experiment that may or may not work, but I'll report back either way. I ground off the rivet to remove the old flapper disk, then replaced them with a triple stack of 18-8 stainless...
  9. Vacuum Leak or Wastegate?

    Volkswagen Passat B5 Discussion
    I've been noticing a lack of power in my 1998 B5 Passat 1.8 on acceleration and highway speeds. Highway travel I hear a constant hiss, which sounds almost like an exhaust leak but is not, the hiss only occurs while the vehicle is in motion. The second problem I noticed is that I seldomly hear a...

    I have a used wastegate actuator for sale. It came off of a bad turbo with 127,000 miles. The car wasn't running right so I couldn't tell if the actuator actually worked. I did do a hand test by pulling on it while it was on the turbo, the diagram is tight not loose at all. It seems like it...

  14. Turbo Wastegate rattle

    Volkswagen Passat B5 Discussion
    I have a 2002 passat 1.8T and I think i have figured out the rattling sound while acceleration is from the wastegate on the turbo. Does this mean the whole turbo is bad? I believe I saw that you can buy the wastegate seperate from the turbo and replace it. I am thinking this would explain some...

  17. Wastegate actuator help

    B5 Garage
    Another issue :) So I put an APR Stage one in a few weeks ago on a B5 99 AEB. Since then a sound like a baseball card in a bike tire has started. I went to my local mechanic and he helped me diag it as a bad wastegate actuator. How bad is this to change? Thanks
