We got a Volvo
D2 75F. It’s 3 years old and has around 400 hours. For the first year I could get 2800 rpm
under full throttle. Volvo
recommends to run the engine
wide open every 10 hours to prevent carbon build up in the turbo and waste gate. I noticed that in the second season we only got 2700 rpm
. I could not quite figure out why. This fall when I did the oil change
I noticed that the 2” hose clamp that holds the rubber hose that connects the turbo out to the engine
intake slipped off and therefore would lose some of the Turbo charge. At that time I realized that the Waste gate is firmly stuck. Questions. Does anyone have the same problem? Since everything seams to run fine, would it create problems if I keep running the same way? Is there a way to free the Waste gate without rebuilding the turbo for $2000.
