Freelander 2 and Range Rover Evoque turbo actuator problems – causing limp home mode.

Freelander 2 turbo actuator

This turbo actuator is specifically fitted to 2.2L Duratorq engine vehicles including: Freelander 2 and Range Rover Evoque. The turbo actuator is designed purposely for the Variable Geometry Turbocharger (VGT Turbo system).

Common malfunctions associated with manufacturing defects internal to the turbo actuator will cause restricted performance and an associated limp home mode, poor turbo boost and the constant illumination of the engine management light (EML). The Freelander 2 and Range Rover Evoque will often be forced into a limp home mode state due to failure of the boost control solenoid / turbo actuator. This actuator malfunction will cause running symptoms that may begin as intermittent, however when left will become permanent in nature, leading to the engine management light to become perpetually lit on ignition cycle.

For the Freelander 2 and Range Rover Evoque, these turbo actuators  are not available to purchase separately and are only sold from main dealership as part of a full turbo replacement. A second-hand actuator replacement would not work due to these being factory mapped/programmed to the specific parameters of the turbo it came from, fitting a second-hand turbo actuator will causes issues with the turbo and engine management system.

Our rebuild option for this turbo actuator will save you over a thousand pounds and provide added peace of mind with our unlimited mile lifetime warranty*
