Hello again.

Miss C got a manicure and ...
.......and so the Chevrolet faults begin..................
points to mdb, we have codes. 0299, 0047 and U100. Miss C was not on the mood for MOT.
No check engine light, but a car with a wrench and no boost.
Well 0047 means, as far as I know, boost control circuit low.
Also 0299 "charger underboost" so no boost available.
Wiring loom? connectors? We dont know yet and miss C is hiding her knowledge.

Atleast I know what I do next weekend.:rolleyes:

If the car has been lying unused for a while it’s sometimes the turbo actuator rod that seizes up, you can spray it with WD40, leave it to penetrate then work it by hand to see if you can free it off.

If the worst comes to the worst and you have to change the turbo here’s a video giving you an idea of what you’re letting yourself in for.

Hello again.
Miss C has been liberated from her tangly tubes. Pcv has leaked a lot of oil inside intake side.
Her hairdryer has nice wings, and easy to spin by fingertips. No wobly at all. But the actuator is seized, so are the variable vanes in turbine side.
I dont think we have enough wd-40 in nordic countries to turn her mind around.
Exhaust has rusted bolts and we have winter.
I think she needs a New hairdrier...

Original Introduction has now turned into a Topic discussion with diagnostic codes, so has now been moved here to the Captiva Forum for open discussion.
