skier LGT Posted December 15, 2016 Share Posted December 15, 2016 Hey again guys, picked up my first LGT yesterday! Pretty excited for this car, it is already a blast, as we are covered in snow up here. However, before buying it, I knew it had a problem going over 4k rpm, guy I bought it from said he took it to a subaru mechanic who said there was a crack in the intercooler, and that's what was causing the problem. So, I decided to take the matter into my own hands and check that claim, hit 4k rpm, and the fuel shutoff and I got the CEL. I connected the two wires to run the code, and it popped out P0244 (Wastegate solenoid). I've read about this on here, and it seems it's overboosting, either because of a bad solenoid, or it needs a tune (it's never been tuned that I know of, but who knows buying a used car). My question is, could this code be popped because of a bad intercooler? Or does it more seem like I need to replace the bcs? It doesn't happen every time, I cleared the code and was able to go WOT a couple times, and then it threw the code again. The turbo was also replaced with an OEM turbo 44k miles ago, should it have been retuned then? Thanks for the help guys! Link to comment Share on other sites More sharing options...
