    2012 Cruze LT 1.4l Turbo P0299 Code and Replacement

    I have reset and every time the check engine light comes on. States P0299 code pending.
    Approx 183,000 miles on it. I still have the original turbo and replaced the oil feed line 2 weeks ago.
    I have some questions for everyone:


    Is there something else that may fix the issue besides replacing the turbo?
    Does it matter what brand turbo I get?
    Is this something that a backyard mechanic can do or should I have the dealer do this with my part?

    My issue is that it does not lag, I just need to pass NY inspection.


    Thank you for your help.

    Welcome Aboard!

    Potential causes of a P0299 turbo underboost code include:
    Intake (induction) air restriction or leak
    Failed or damaged turbocharger (sticking, binding, etc.)
    Faulty boost/charge pressure sensor

    Thank you for the information. I will be testing the system before I do anything further.

    Thank you for your help.
    After checking for boost leaks, drop the catalytic converter and check turbo housing for cracks. I had the crack and received the same code. I think you are fine with replacing with GM turbo. Job is not bad at all, but you probably will want to replace the rubber coolant hoses and seals and oil return line if original. Definitely need a good day and gallon of coolant 5 quarts of oil and filter. I think it ran me about $475 total vs quotes at 1800 to 2200. I can send you part number if you need them. send me a pm.

    Testing revealed the big hose going to the drivers side of the radiator where it meets the boost system was leaking. I tightened the clamp but it came back this morning. I'm off to get a new clamp and hopefully an inspection.
