Mazda 6 2.2 185hp VJ40 Turbo Problem

Post by Kermit » Fri Aug 17, 2018 2:38 pm

Hi guys,
I think that I have problem with turbocharger in my Mazda 6. Turbo doesn't seem to boost anymore or just a little bit. I have a management lights on dash and ratting noise when accelerate.

I managed to get photos and this is how it's look like:

This looks like your turbocharger is gone. Can you try to move the wheel? Check is there is up/down movement?

This rattling noise may be also sign that shaft has snapped or seals is gone

From pictures I can say that this turbocharger is gone, but I cannot promise
Just like Pysia said, try to move wheel and check for any unexpected movement like up and down.
