The APC Solenoid, also known as the boost pressure control solenoid, can fail creating an over-boost condition or a lack of boost from the turbocharger. This may be felt in an abrupt loss of acceleration under heavy load (climbing a hill, or quick acceleration).
The air conditioning expansion valve can fail causing poor, or no cooling from the AC system.
Oil commonly leaks from the distributor o-ring requiring replacement of the o-ring. Oil will be visible on the front of the engine near the distributor.
Poor cooling from the air conditioning may be caused be leaks from the AC cooling lines at the AC compressor. Inspection of the system is recommended to isolate any potential leak.
