ea82t problems, tick, clunk, and no turbo. thoughts/suggestions/troubleshooting?
Posted 11 July 2004 - 03:26 AM
a) seems to leak oil, I guess this is not a huge issue as most sube's tend to leak a bit now and then, it's coming from the passenger side of the motor somewhere (cant pinpoint where)
really bad lifter noise, this started BEFORE I added any of the "thinner" oil. I am wondering if the guy I got it from used some seafoam or something. Is the ticking a problem? Is it something I should be concerned about or is it just "noise"?
c) there is a weird clunking noise when going over bumps, it seems to be coming from the front left side, again, I cant exacly pinpoint it, it almost sounds like something is loose but I checked and found nothing up there after a brief inspection. Its more of a "clunk" then it is a rattle (if that makes any sense) I suspect it may be suspension bushings, I have heard they clunk when they wear out...
d) (this is the sucky one) the turbo stopped working, one night it worked, the next morning I woke up and the car seemed sluggish, it took me half a block to realize I didnt hear the familiar whine that I have come to love over the past few months. I took out the spair and couldnt see any aubvius issues, I started it up and couldnt hear any exaust leaks that may cause this, what happened? Is my turbo just firied? For some reason it seems like if a turbo blows it would make a loud noise, or would happen under extreme circumstances, but in this case, it just stopped working.. any thouhgts?

Clunking while driving: I'd suspect bushings, like you said. I'd also check the strut tower bushings, the rubber piece on top of the strut that attaches to the body.
The first thing I'd check on the turbo is the wastegate. Make sure it isn't stuck open. DO NOT drive around with the hose on the wastegate diaphram detached. Have fun, let us know what happens.

In the meantime I am going to go find out what a wastegate is so I can check if its stuck or not ....
