Is your truck showing signs of low boost, lag, sticking turbo vanes, or throwing actuator failure codes? Rob from HHP's Technical Sales is here to discuss a viewer's question on a failing Cummins 6.7L turbo actuator.
Learn to recognize these symptoms and take action before you're faced with a larger problem while on the job.
Hook the actuator up to the computer with it disconnected from the turbocharger and you can test it. Here are some symptoms of electrical faults:
Sector Gear Moves Easily
Noise Coming from Turbocharger
Make sure the sector gear moves freely on your turbocharger. If it doesn't move, you definitely need a turbo and possibly an actuator. Here are some symptoms that you have a mechanical issue:
Bent Turbo Fins
Failed Thrust or Ball Bearings
EGR Valve Problems
EGR Cooler Problems
