2 more updates:
1. I had a steering fluid leak so it took some time to identify where the leak was coming from. It was the high pressure line to the rack and pinion, used a crowfoot wrench to tighten at the rack and pinion with a breaking bar, it is tight now.
2. The big one, the jeep got a P0046 code (TURBOCHARGER BOOST CONTROL CIRCUIT PERFORMANCE). Yikes, I some searching on WK forums and other forums (300C and sprinter). The solution seemed to be a rebuild or purchase a new actuator on the turbo. So, did more searching on the actuator and found somebody in Toronto how rebuilds the actuator (Alec from [email protected]
), website is Turbo Actuator Repair Service / Rebuild Service
. Sent it to him, he tested it and check the gears and gave his ok. Sent it back to me but still getting the error. Alec suggested to check:
o My suspicion is a boost pressure leak ... o rings do get "spit" out and then crawl back in.
o Have a close look at the coupling between the kidney shake resonator right at the front and the aluminum pipe that comes across the engine from the Turbo.
o Also in the same place is the EGR cooler coupling, and it's so very flimsy and all of ring sealed.
o Check your hoses and coupling to the intercooler.
o Easy way to check is with someone gunning it while you listen and watch. It will pop and puff rather then a constant leak.
I am going to work on this on the weekend but any CRD owner out there in the rest of the world beside North America, what do you think?
