MQ TRITON VACCUM PUMP.

Postby AndyMq on Tue Jun 01, 2021 6:06 pm

Hi, just want to see if anyone has ever heard of this happening.

I own a 2018 mq triton gls. 65000km on the clock and upto date with service.

I was driving home and my brakes just went super tight and i lost boost. Luckly i was just around the corner from my house.

I organised to drop it off at the dealer and after they had a a look at it. They said that the vaccum pump on the front of the motor was buggered. They said there is a cog on there that exploded. Causing no vaccum to the system stoping the boost also as the waste gate couldnt open.

Any one heard of this?

check your 4wd knob on the console and also the indicator on the dash to see if it's showing 2wd or4wd. The front diff lock is operated by vacuum. No vacuum and it locks the front axle up . Vaccuum,keeps it in 2wd , vacuum off locks up the diff.
cheers
