    2005 WRX

    Yesterday I was driving about about 80mph came up on slower traffic, slowed down to about 65, put in in 4th and passed at a moderate speed. The fuel cut off and CEL came on. The code was P0244 Waste Gate. My boost gauge is not showing any boost or vacuum. Obviously, it could be a waste gate problem but could a be a vacuum leak somewhere else?

    So if it is a waste gate problem, can you swap the solenoid?

    I'm a noob and know very little about turbo's. I have done some reading and research the past couple of days, so I do understand how it works, just trying to get some opinions.

    So, I think the wastegate was due to the recent ECU reset that I did. Car is running better today and no CEL at all. If I make it the whole week, I think I'm good. I'm still going to take it in this week to have the data from the ECU read by a tuner and possibly get it tuned.
