See, that last part isn't something that happened with mine. Mine seemed to be only electrical, with no physical symptoms or noises other than loss of power. It sounds like something is burning somewhere


potential oil leak?
tried the fix with Wastegate Solenoid.Fixed the P0299.
Code cleared after a few drives. Came back a few days after code cleared. Every time I accelerate hard all boost pressure gets lost.

New solenoid installed. Hoses were basically welded onto the old one. Now getting 200+hp at the crank and 16.7 psi of boost. Low boost pressure has completely gone away, only to be replaced by loud squeaking sound coming from the front left at full boost. I'm assuming the intercooler hoses have a small pinhole leak that's making the sound. I can replace those hoses soon, but you guys were right; the solenoid was broken. The solenoid was visibly cracked and was likely leaking air pressure, causing the problem. I'm assuming this happened when the turbo was replaced.

Again, I wouldn't have thought to change the solenoid without your help. Much thanks for pointing me to a $45 part that got me 45+ horsepower!
Do you by chance have the part number you ordered? ive ordered one twice once from advanced auto parts and once from the local dealer and both have showed up wtith a different electrical connector and a added vacuum line that wasnt on the original. any help is appreciated. mine is a 2013 1.6 but im sure the 2014 is similar. or does anyone have a after market option that has worked for them?

there are two that are almost identical - one sits up on the intercooler the other back by the turbo. chances are you ordered the other one. which one did you get, what is the PN?
