Jaguar S-Type Electronic Turbo Actuator Faults
The Jaguar S-Type 2.7D from 2004 – 2008 is fitted with an electronic turbo actuator which is controlled by the Engine ECU. The electronic turbo actuator regulates the output of the turbo and when tuned correctly can greatly improve the power, performance and economy of the vehicle by reducing the turbo spool up time and increasing boost pressure. The electronic actuator when faulty can also cause a loss of power, smoking problems and other issues – it can turn into a very costly repair as well.
Some of the common problems relating to a failed turbo actuator can include the following:
- Loss of power under acceleration
- Intermittent loss of power under acceleration
- Smoking on acceleration
- Fault codes pointing to turbo actuator
- “Charge Air Pressure Control” fault
- Actuator arm not moving
- Limp mode
- Flashing glow plug light
When your Jaguar S-Type electric turbo actuator fails your local dealer will recommend replacing the complete turbocharger + actuator together as the actuator is not sold as a separate component. This can be very costly, you can expect a bill upwards of £1200 for the replacement parts plus labour and the new part will only come with a standard 12 month warranty. The alternative option can be to have your existing actuator remanufactured by Sinspeed which is then returned to you with a Lifetime warranty.
