Boost Control Actuator Problem
Ok, so I am kinda new to the thread but have looked at the forum plenty without being active enough. This forum has helped with an array of questions and would just like to thank everyone for the support and help ahead of time.
Aside from that, my problem. I have read most of the posts on problems with low boost. I have done the test, and my actuator does not move AT ALL, it is unmovable. I have tried oil on all the places stated in the troubleshooting. I know this is not good at all, and was wondering if there is anything to do to fix it; for instance if something was tightened that shouldn't be or anything else. The troubleshooting does not say anything after put light oil on all the ports, I am guessing it assumes it should help it work.
The contradicting problem is that I have been getting the usual 2-3 PSI of boost like the rest of us with this problem. But after not being able to move the actuator I went ahead and plugged the vacuum line for the BCS and took it for a drive and got 5+ pounds of boost can't remember if it got up to stock numbers. It just confused me, so are both bad? I am currently trying to buy new BCS and BCA from another member which would be a lifesaver. Thanks all for the help.
