Default Re: lower turbo hose???

Hi there, I've been having problems with a leak of coolant as well, and think it may b same as urs. I think mine is leaking from the intercooler hose is that's the one that's on the lower part of the rad. And I couldn't order that part either. Guess I'm goNna take her to the dealership in the morning. If they have time to take her.

yours sounds like a different issue than the op posted. Yours sounds like the lower coolant radiator hose which can be purchased at any parts place such as Advance Auto or Auto Zone or online at Rockauto
The intercooler is only air to air, no fluids involved.

The op's post was from around the first of January, but if he's talking about the "hot-side pipe" its always under boost any time the turbo is turning. It's even before the unavoidable 3 to 4 pound boost drop coming out of the fmic, but he's saying it sucks shut?

my turbo inlet hose used to do that, suck in when you hit the accelerator, then blow out when you let off the gas. Sucked, and caused me to lose around 12 hp!

Yes, i've seen that happen also, but thats not the pipe he was describing. He's said its his "turbo to intercooler" pipe that is sucking shut?
