Question: 1997 Dodge Caravan mileage: 57,000. Just recently my service light went on. It shows a code 45 "turbo boost problems" I found out. The car shifts fine when its cold, but it quickly just stays in first gear and does not shift into higher gears. After it cools down for a while, it shifts, but quickly resumes staying in first gear. Reverse is fine. Any clue before I go looking around for repairs. Thank you for your time.
Answer: A boost pressure that is too high causes a turbo boost problem. Check the waste gate as it may be hanging up causing the over boost.
My question is what is a "waste gate" and where the heck do I find it?
have the same problem?
