    On and off P0299 low boost code on a 2013 Explorer 2.0 ecoboost

    110000 miles regular oil chains with full synthetic 5-30w. No history of driveline faults

    The boost does seem low but diagnostic readings appear to show 8psi boost is being achieved.

    There is a rattle... sounds like a heat shield but inspection of Cat Back found nothing.

    Oil level is stable no unusual consumption or leaks

    What am I missing? Could it be a timing chain? Do I need to get a turbo? Are there any troubleshooting steps I've missed? Anyone else come accrosss this?

    It's my ride, and I want to keep it.

    Did you ever fix this?
    Low boost usually relates to the wastegate solenoid or related hoses. A leak or faulty sensor would cause low boost conditions.

    Could a damaged coil/spoil also be the cause of this?
