Turbo waste gate actuator, which one?

Guys I need a turbo waste gate actuator, but I'm having trouble getting the correct part number. On the plastic piece of the part the model number is 6nw008412 but there are variants to the metal part attached to it, with a code such as G130 etc, I need this code to order the part but it's hidden by the turbo!

Any ideas?

CRD Jeep uses only one same turbo actuator starting with model year 2006 to 2010 in wk series. Replacing actuator is wery simple but that action needs adjustment that can be done only with special equipment.In most cases your ECU will go in safe mode or you will have sporadic loss of power without proper adjustment...

Id be happy to get the Jeep dealer to adjust the part, once fitted, but I'd like to buy the part used, to save a shed load of cash.

Does anyone have the part number?

Hope this will be use to other members, the numbers you need from the METAL part of the turbo actuator are below. They are hidden by the turbo.

You can't buy the actuator on its own from Jeep, but there are plenty of used units about.

This was from my late 06 3.0 CRD, which now has a new actuator fitted and running perfectly again.

Prior I had an overboost fault code and the red flashing throttle control sensor fault on the dash.

Both now sorted by replacing this actuator.

The numbers you need to get the correct part are H-48 & G-219

I'm in the same boat as you were. Can't find a source to purchase a new electronic actuator and being told i will need a new turbo.

How were you able to determine if a used actuator was any better than the one you were replacing, other than installing it and trying it out?

What additional calibration is needed if swapping out the actuator or is plug and play. Can the calibration be performed at the jeep dealership?

Can you share your source for finding a functioning used electronic actuator?

Many thanks for posting your experience with this issue.

Mark

Is this the source you used to purchase a rebuilt electronic actuator? I see they are located in the UK, would have to figure out how costly shipping charges are.

I had a line on a turbo shop in Arkansas that would rebuild the actuator for $195, but unfortunately they would need 10 actuators to send to their rebuilder.

Iy looks like I may be either pulling the actuator to send overseas for rebuilding or pulling and replacing the entire turbo unit with a new one for $1,600 - $1,800 plus core depending on supplier.

Anybody know how to test one of these? I have a complete spare turbo. I plan on doing a compressor wheel upgrade and want to make sure at least one of my actuators is working. I get a low boast code sometimes so not sure my stock one is good

Have someone rev up the engine to 3500 rpm while you monitor movement of the actuator linkage. If no movement, you likely have a problem with the electronic actuator or the MAP sensor.

I understand the electronic actuator may fail prematurely due to heat exposure, especially considering it is located next to an uninsulated turbocharger that is throwing off heat which is retained under a plastic engine cover.

I don't have experience on these specific turbos but on other variable geometry turbos carbon built up on the vanes and the servo for the actuator could not push/pull the gummed up vanes. Takeing the turbo apart and cleaning everything might solve your problem.

I picked up the GC from the Jeep dealership on Saturday and drove it home in limp mode. I had them replace the fuel filter and an 02 sensor while it was there for diagnosis.

The GC made it about a half mile before the flashing lightning bolt came on, no CEL though.

I don't have much faith in the Jeep dealership's ability to diagnosis and repair a Mercedes CRD.

I had my wife rev up the engine which will only push 2500 - 3000 rpm max at this point. The turbo actuator appears to be in the uppermost position at idle and while the rpm's are increased, however it drops to a lower position and the comes back up when the rpm's are decreased and the engine returns to idle. I was under the impression that a faulty actuator would not have any movement.

Can anyone with a normally functioning turbo tell me what the actuator movement is supposed to look like on our GC 3.0 when revving the engine?

Thanks~Mark

The dealer can use the Chrysler starscan tool to test the actuator.

You can use the simple procedure from the sprinter forum too
