Turbos work on exhaust gas, which regulates the speed of the turbocharger turbine and determines the maximum amount of boost delivered to the engine. The wastegate hose is responsible for diverting gases out of the turbo. However, these hoses are subject to immense heat, which when combined with wear and tear, can eventually deteriorate significantly. Problems with wastegate hoses include leaks, blockages, and more.
If you have symptoms of power loss or hear a hissing noise under the hood, a wastegate hose leak is likely at fault. Have one of our expert mechanics diagnose your wastegate hose issue.
If your wastegate hose is damaged, your engine is not getting the boost it needs from the turbocharger. This compromises performance and can even affect your fuel economy. Don’t wait too long if your wastegate hose needs to be replaced.
