Star was used to exercise the positioner a few times - this test passed. This car has a Garrett turbo which has an electrical screw-drive positioner that sets the variable-vane angle inside the exhaust side of the turbo to control boost.
There was no accompanying code which would indicate boost too low or too high and often means the variable vanes are stuck or sticky. Merc dealer contacted as part of the Mobilo process recommended a new turbo as the positioner is integral and not available separately even though it unbolts from the turbo! I asked the Mobilo guy to print and then reset the codes so the car was out of limp mode they have an HP printer in the R-class cars.
First check was to unclip the positioner linkage and check that the variable vane mechanism inside the turbo was moving correctly.
It was free and smooth with no stickiness from stop to stop. So, Star had checked the electrical part of the actuator and I had checked the physical I took the air filter pipe off and spun the turbo by hand - smooth and free with no noise. Next was to check the exhaust back pressure sensor located to the side of the turbo on the EGR casting.
This was sooted up and the hole in the casting was narrowed with soot as well. I decided to take out the EGR valve for a look at the same time 2 bolts and a wiggle. EGR was a bit dirty but amazingly clean by the old standards for a diesel at k miles. I cleaned out the pressure sensor and the hole it reads through using a cloth in the EGR casing to catch the debris the sensor is a simple diaphragm variable resistor device that feeds a voltage back to the ECU.
All reassembled the car has since not missed a beat we went to Sheffield and York and back plus lots of local mileage while we were there - over miles total and is also improved in linearity of low engine speed torque and gearchange smoothness at low throttle inputs.
I had been aware of a very slight power oscillation on very low throttle before the failure so this might well be another diagnostic for this fault. This has also completely gone.Discussion in ' Engine ' started by g nazaFeb 25, Messages: 9.
Messages: 1, Turbo actuator maybe. Both turbo and the actuator have been replaced. Messages: You have to check air pipes because of a split or damage somewhere.
Appreciate the advice but gas leak test has already been performed and no problems were found. Anything, anyone? Map sensor should be checked. The new one has been installed already. I m leaning towards EGR at the moment In case anyone has the same problem in the future rpm limit was caused by exhaust back pressure sensors. Does you r car has dpf? Not sure, I think it does have it being newer cdi engine. You must log in or sign up to reply here. Show Ignored Content. Tags: cdi code e error rev rpms.

Error codes P2359 and P2355
You will notice a decrease in gas mileage and over time the car will eventually start stalling a lot. So you should chech it on our car models. The crankshaft sensor signals the fuel injection computer or the ignition control when the cylinders are firing. This causes the ignition coil to provide a spark and the injector to inject fuel into each cylinder at the right time.
If either sensor isn't working correctly, the car will run rough and the engine will be less efficient. In later car models, the car's computer can usually keep the vehicle running, but the engine warning light on the dashboard goes on to warn the driver. Parts or components should not be replaced with reference to only a P DTC.
The vehicle service manual should be consulted for more information on possible causes of the fault, along with required testing. Code Search Please fill the "Code Box" to find engine fault code.

The solution is here :.When your car's ' P Check Engine' light comes on, it's usually accompanied by a sinking feeling in the pit of your stomach.
The light could mean a costly problem, like a bad catalytic converter, or it could be something minor, like a loose gas cap. But in many cases, it means at minimum that you'll be visiting the car dealer to locate the malfunction and get the light turned off. When you check car engine light came on code P the reason should be. So you should chech it on our car models. Disconnected, dirty or fouled spark plugs are common causes for engines that won't start. Spark plugs typically need to be replaced every season or 25 hours of use.
You should also check that the spark plug gap is set properly. If your spark plugs look good, problems with your ignition system can also preventing a spark. These can range from a faulty spark plug lead, shorted kill switch or flywheel key damage. Parts or components should not be replaced with reference to only a P DTC. The vehicle service manual should be consulted for more information on possible causes of the fault, along with required testing.

Just thought I would pass this along. While driving my Sprinter today it started to lose power and whent into the limp mode. I had my Solus with me and found the P code. I whent through the Troubleshooter list, which listed dirty air filter, air restriction, boost pressure sensor, turbocharger issue, pcm issue.
In the parking lot of a gas station some where in VT, I pulled the hoses between the intercooler and intake. Cleaned the boost air temp sensor, and also checked MAF sensor, and checked the air filter.
Cleared code, note that it never lit the MILand drove. It was good for two strong pulls, then did same. Next I cleaned and tested the boost pressure switch. It was ok. Climbed under the truck and found the linkage from the variable vane actuator had come off of the arm at the turbo. Appears the clip rotted our fell off. I made up a temporary fix with an old piece of a small spring to keep the arm in place and wil pick up an E-Clip tomorrow. Cleared code again and all is well.
Mercedes-Benz GL+class P2359 Engine Trouble Code
Sorry for the long story, hope this helps someone down the road. Joe Rappa. Chris, This is actually alot more common than you think. When I used to travel weekly, our team van was an 06 Sprinter. Coming home from Rockingham, our engine started to lose power.
Waited for a few minutes at the gas station, started it back up, and went fine for another 40 minutes Found out it was a sticking wastegate, not allowing boost to build. Also, another team had a similar van All Dodge teams at that time had Sprinters to use for team travel that had same issue 6 months later.
I know this isn't identical, but the Sprinter engines have been known to have turbo-system related issues since their inception. Thread Tools. All times are GMT The time now is PM. Lost password? Reminder: Your participation in these areas of the site is solely at your own risk.

My aims were to examine and clean using IPA not the drink! I will obviously check all lines to check for any leaks too! Any other suggestions I forgot to mention the car is a w b class55 plate Thanks in advance Suki. SukiJan 12, Alex CrowJan 12, Hi, Thank you for your response. Perhaps a silly questionsbut what wil the star system do that the codes do not provide?
Regards Suki. SukiJan 13, Alex CrowJan 13, Hi All I manged to fix the car! I removed the air filter and examined a EGR There was a split hose which was reducing the vacuum! All fixed! SukiJan 17, P error code on OBD I've searched this group and discovered someone else had encountered this error which was attributed to the turbo boost, and in their case a split hose.
I took a look myself at my CDi B Class 1. Can someone please advise on this? KevQuoiAug 4, Steve AvantgardeAug 5, SukiAug 5,
