Hi guys I have an 02 sprinter that all of a sudden would not build boost. I can manually depress the turbo actuator and it will build boost then, so I know its not the turbo. I can also suck on the vacuum hose and make the actuator go down so I know its not the actuator. I replaced the vacuum transducer and still nothing. I also took off the EGR (it was very clogged) cleaned it out and put it back in and it STILL didnt build boost! I even opened the EGR valve manually and it didnt build boost. HELP!!!!

Cracked intercooler hoses? My 2002 OEM's went just last year - so timing is about right for yours. https://sprinter-source.com/forum/showthread.php?t=49282&highlight=intercooler

Thanks, I just found the problem. It was a broken wire to the vacuum transducer

We had similar issues in our 2012/2013sprinters. One was lagging when we were loaded. It turned out to be MAF sensor.

Second sprinter had no acceleration from the zero. It was the ekas actuator.
