    Giving some feedback over Limp Mode

    First I want to thank everyone for the wealth of information that is shared on this site. I have used it many times but have never registered or posted. My first time reading here was the dreaded oil ingestion. I had the duh moment when I saw there was no oil on the dipstick and was scared and overfilled it. 2 map sensors later and a lot of cussing, I got her back running. That was probably 4 years ago. Really my ski has been very reliable till this last season I was limited at 5100 rpm and a CEL. I changed both maps and tried checking my boost. MAPs didn't change anything and I figured I had a CEL that was bogus and needed to be cleared. Well after trying to develop a way to do that for a couple months, I figured what the heck try changing the wastegate solenoid. I replaced it with the pierburg one for a volvo and whattdoyaknow... she runs like a scalded dog again. Thank you all again for your help. I just wanted to give some feedback on my situation in case it might help others.

    Thanks for joining. Always nice to hear how others have been helped!

    Which Pierburg part number did you purchase for the replacement watergate solenoid?

    Which model MSX do you have?

    B75001 TechSmart/Turbocharger Boost Solenoid

    I have a 2004 MSX 150

    Unfortunately the wiring harness did not matchup, but I used jumpers and some stakon crimpons to fix that without cutting the wiring harness in case it didn't work. It was actually the techsmart version

    TechSmart/Turbocharger Boost Solenoid

    Part Number: B75001
