    2012 1.4T P0299 and P0599. Thermostat? New turbo?

    I have a 2012 1.4t with 125k miles. Highway miles. Still gets 31mpg. I have both codes p0299 and p0599. Both popped up roughly the same times.


    So after some research, I see the p0599 is for a thermostat. I have a brand new spare in the box. I just wanted and verify that it couldn't be something else. I read that the car will run the ran full speed at all times. I haven't really noticed if this is true or now.


    the dreaded p0299 turbo wastegate rod failure. I was wondering if anyone has gone with the dorman replacement? Part # 667-203. Seems like a good package deal with all the needed gaskets and bolts.


    Any advice is appreciated!

    bump.


    Any one have a parts list for the OEM GM parts? The critical parts needed replaced, oil feed/return lines/ coolant feed/return lines, gaskets, washers...etc.

    Ended up going with all OEM parts. New oil and coolant feed and returns lines, get gaskets, etc. Old turbo had 3 nice size cracks around the wastegate flapper. Took about 2.5 hours to change. Car is running good.


    Also replaced the thermostat too.


    No more CELs for either.

    Thanks for the update. I remember seeing your OP and wondering about the Dorman too. I see you went OEM.

    I thinks its more of a piece of mind with a OEM GM part. The new casting on the exhaust portion of the turbo was several different part # marks. So im hoping they updated it. Be nice to get another 125k miles.

    I noticed there's an AcDelco Reman now listed in the Rockauto catalog. Did you get a new one, or did you get a OEM AcDelco Reman?
