Need more information, pull the codes, check to see if your Inlet Air Temperature sensor in the up pipe blew out with your boosting around, what is your boost pressure now in 3rd at WOT, check for leaks, download the Service Manual, Google...............................i just bought an srt4 yesterday its my first boosted car so i dont no much about boost so it seemed fine and powerful when i started driving it but what do i no. after about an hour of flying around i basically lost power and had no acceleration. the car wouldnt go faster than 100 km/h in 5th gear. even in 3rd gear i would hit it and the boost would pressure up and hit 7k rpm but the car was not pulling at all. i came to a stop and took off and i was only do 80km/h and already maxed out in 5th gear. the car had a ton of black smoke coming from my exhaust as well. anyone have any idea wtf is going on becuase i dont. the engine felt shaky and when i was coasting down the road my rpm went down to 0 and car shut off ass well. also idles like shit around 500 to 900 up and down almost shuts off when at idle.
Dude consider 10 a good number bought my 04 srt about 2 weeks ago already got a grand in parts "all crucial" but I peak at around 5 psiI bought a 05 last month. car has only 1900 miles on the clock as of now. I think i already have a boost leak. My boost gauge won't even spike at 15psi anymore. It goes to around 14psi or so then drops to 11-12 psi under WOT in 2nd, 3rd, and 4th gears. Is 11-12psi normal for a 05 or does this already sound like the infamous boost leak issue with these cars. Its very frustating to me now already. I have read over the article but I have no idea what all that stuff means. I'm a newb to FI so from my standpoint, its like reading a second language I know nothing about. Can someone please help sort of tell me where the iniital prone areas of the leaks generally come from. also, is this a bandaid fix or does zip tieing the hoses fix the problem for good?
2nd gear.....10 psi and thats it!
3rd gear...12 psi until around 4500 rpms then it goes to 14 psi dropping to 13 psi around 5500 rpms.
4th gear....12 psi.
^^Is that normal or does that seem like a boost leak?
