Hi Guys - Is this a common fault?
Our 03 Classic 2.5 L200 is running very lumpy and when starting from cold you must not press the throttle to get her to start then it takes about 3 min of idling before she will take the throttle and rev up. When driving she continually splutter but can be driven and the turbo can be felt boosting.

When she is idling and you crimp the vacuum pipe to the pressure sensor at the rear of the intercooler she immediately idles smooth, the turbo vane (wastgate) lever is against the top adjustment bolt and when manually pushed back she again idles smooth.

I have changed all the pressure sensors and air control valves and the turbo was changed last year.

is there a fault code??

what your saying is that without you touching anything is the actuator against the top screw or not??

it should be against the top screw at idle, and you wont be able to push it back with your hand,

sounds like your vac wiring is on wrong, have you changed the pair of soleoids on the back of the inlet? aswell as the boost sensor
