TURBO PROBLEMS AND FAQS

You can think of “Limp Mode” as an “emergency mode” used by your vehicle Electronic Control Unit (ECU) to protect the engine and transmission from serious damage. The “Limp Mode” feature programmed in the ECU can reduce engine power, turn off A/C, and sometimes manipulates the automatic transmission to allow you to drive the car safely. If the Check Engine Light is lit or the information center is showing up a warning message, then we strongly suggest to pull over or drive to the closest repair shop. Driving for prolonged periods of time in Limp mode may cause major mechanical breakdowns to the engine and/or transmission.

By design, when the vehicle enters in Limp mode the Electronic Control Unit (ECU) reduces the engine power and manipulates automatic transmission gears. As a direct consequence of Limp mode, you may experience poor acceleration, reduced speed, automatic transmission stuck in 2nd or 3rd gear, and no A/C. It’s strongly suggested to visit a repair shop as soon as possible if you have any of these symptoms to avoid further damage to your engine.

Absolutely. The Limp mode allows you to drive your vehicle (with reduced power) so you can reach your destination. Once you get home or any other safe place, it’s strongly suggested to book a visit with a local repair shop to diagnose the root of the problem. Driving for prolonged periods of time in Limp mode may cause major mechanical breakdowns to the engine and/or transmission.

Turbo overboost most common causes are air leaks, damage on turbo internal parts, debris impacting the turbo, a blocked VNT mechanism, or wrong turbo actuator settings. With the exception of air leaks that can be easily fixed changing the appropriate gaskets, most of these issues will require repairing and/or replacing your turbocharger or turbocharger internal parts.

An underperforming turbo boost is commonly caused by air leaks, a clogged air filter, damage on turbo internal parts, worn engine components, a blocked VNT mechanism, or a restricted turbo air pipe connection. Air leaks, air filter, and air pipe issues can be easily fixed by a competent mechanic, however, the rest of these issues will require repairing and/or replacing your turbocharger or turbocharger internal parts.

VNT turbo vanes consist of a mechanism inside the turbocharger that helps to decrease engine lag at low RPM as well as preventing turbo overboost at high RPM. To achieve this goal, turbo vanes are operated by a turbo actuator (either vacuum-operated or electronically controlled by the ECU) to increase or reduce exhaust flow.
