turbo actuator vsv problems

PostPosted by jimmy12345 » Thu Oct 09, 2014 6:33 pm

hi guys.
having trouble getting some info/help , trying this rav4 drivers club as rav4 world/ Toyota owner world ,tell me this is the place to be
so here go's
recently purchased a rav4 d4d 2003 2.0 diesel with blown turbo , smoking badly - replaced turbo cartridge, cleaned intercooler and associated pipe work
took for test drive vehicle felt like it was in limp mode would not rev over 2000 rpm
had fault codes read p0100 maf sensor
p0500 speed sensor
p1115 iat sensor
p1228 unknown code / probably scv
replaced maf - no change
further investigations i found that the turbo actuator arm was being sucked up by pump but would continue to be held up by vacuum until pipe or connecting wires were disconnected from vsv
when i remove vacuum pipe from vsv the car will rev to around 4000 rpm but not very powerful when road tested
unsure what it was driving like before the turbo went as only drove it 500 yards slowly to my home .
any info would be very welcome , cheers in advance

I did see your original posts on "that" other site and the lack of replies. There are some Rav4 mechanical gurus on here
but they seem to work shifts so hang about and I am sure you will get some help :s_thumbsup
