Steyr motor turbocharger complete


Jose Alegria
 

Dear colleagues

My Amel has one Steyer  motor 140 hp.
The waste gate is stuck and the turbo specialist tell me- " no way- you need replace the all turbo ".
I try contact the Steyr motors ( sales , service and office ) but no one give me any answer!....
Can you give me some ideas.
My boat is at Cleopatra marina dry dock - Preveza - Greece.

kindest regards

Jose, 
Try to get in contact / repair by www.turbolader.net - new turbo is expensive.

Hi Jose,

I have no knowledge of the steyer motor but my volvo D275 habitually had the wastegate sticking as did the wastegate on my volvo tmd 22.

The shaft through the housing to the exterior lever gets a buildup on it that causes it to sieze. I disasembled and freed them up by mechanically moving it while adding lubricant. A slow but efective process but it always re seized. I have approached experts in Volvo and they had no solution. If you buy a new turbo the same thing will happen with the new one. I suspect there are many many siezed turbo wastegates out there but owners dont know it.

I have found the answer in a product called carbo clean. This applied to the shaft rapidly disolved the build up causing the seizing. To access it i had to remove the exhaust mixing elbow. Now  the initial problem is cleared I just apply it to the shaft externally. On the Volvo the shaft comes up from below so there isnt a gravity assist. If the steyer has the waste gate  shaft descending you will probably get results by applying carbo clean fom the exterior.

Regards

Danny

Hi Danny,

Do you know who manufactures and/or supplies the carbo clean product you use? I've found quite a variety online.

Thanks,

Hi Mike,

I wont be on the boat for a few days but next time out I will check. I just bought the product at an auto supply shop. I was strongly warned by a Volvo agent (who could not help wit the problem) not to spray it into the turbo but that is not difficult as the waste gate shaft is external. However what the product does is remove wax like build up that occurs over time in petrol carburetors and I cant see that harming a turbo. However I keep it out in case. Because it was so spectacularly successful in freeing my waste gate I would suspect we are dealing with a similar build up. It is the only product I have found that works.

Regards

Danny

Sorry I have not responded sooner, have been off the boat without internet for a bit.  On the Volvo D3 – 110 you can see the round vacuum actuator attached to a rod that leads up to an eccentric or cam on the turbo.  Although Volvo calls this a variable geometry actuator, fancy terminology for a way to change the angle of the blades to change the amount of boost pressure as engine load changes.  Mine was sticking and giving an engine error code.  Virtually every company I talked with said the turbo had to be rebuilt.  I found a very helpful Volvo dealership that sent me the attached service bulletin.  I sprayed the actuator and eccentric then worked both back and forth with a screwdriver to free it up, my problem was solved.  This may be the issue you are having.

On Amelia we have the  Volvo Penta D3 110. 

In the Volvo manual that came with the boat, in it’s  original Amel folder, there was a note to say that as a matter of maintenance one should spray  lubricant like WD40, onto the actuator lever on the turbo and work it as it has a tendency to seize.

This is something that I regularly do.

Hi Mike, it is a CRC product and seeing you are in Opua you should have no trouble accessing it. Repco are likely to have it. Photo attached. I am based in Mangonui a day sail north of you if you would like a catch up

Hi Mike,

Any carburetor cleaner will work. Be careful around plastics and finished wood , this chemical is very strong.
