stuck wastegate


Recommended Posts

Got a stuck wastegate which is causing some sluggish acceleration, eventually gets to top speed etc just slowly

Freed it about 18 mths or so ago and its happened again

The wastegate is obviously within the exhaust system and gets sooted up and sticks

Do I free it and just clean it, or oil/grease it

Stu dog sells that Chesterton spray which is a high temperature lubricant for turbos. Ifs double expensive but good stuff.
