Turbo Actuator Vacuum Leak.......
Hey guys and girls, firstly id like to say i hope the information i have seen on here that has helped me in the past can come to help me on my specific problem this time! Ive been creeping on here for a while and found it sooo helpful!!
I bought an Alfa GT 1.9JTDm at the end of jan and it is the best car ive ever owned (driving 7 years had 8 cars, through choice not wrecks!) but during owning it i noticed a high pitched whine and could not for the life of me figure out what it was. I took the GT to get remapped and during the process i found out that there is some sort of leak in the vacuum system or the actuator connected to the turbo, im more inclined to think it is the actuator diaphram has a leak as when i move the rod the leak disappears.
My question to the wiser in the forum is, is it possible to replace the diaphram in the actuator or will it be a new actuator for me? And if i will have to buy a new actuator where do i find one, cause i cannot seem to find them on the tinterweb anywhere!
Thanks in advance!!
