Hey Everyone,

Just a question. I have a 99 Siliva S15 Spec-r.
The problem is while im driving the car my boost gauge will stop working randomly. It doesnt feel like I am loosing any boost.
It's quite annoying. It's under warrenty so I can take it back to be fixed. But I though i might pose the question to see if anyone else has had this problem.

Cheers everyone, thanks for the help in advance.

Is this the factory JDM pillar gauge? If so,I wouldn't worry about it too much,as you're bound to replace it very soon with something aftermarket that has a more useful scale.

probably the PCB in the sensor under the bonnet. the heat has probably dried out the solder joints. easy repair if youre handy with a soldering iron

check the vacuum hose for leaks and make sure it hasn't been replaced with one thats an incorrect size.

i also have a spare boost gauge solenoid if yours is troublesome, pm me to work something out.
