The rubber tubing does deteriorate with age and could well be the problem, a description of fault 17958 =

There is also a small section of hose hidden inside the engine ECU which may also need to be replaced.

Also check actuator on turbo is moving freely (full travel without sticking)

2009 Kia Sedona GS In Black 2.9CRDI 183PS. 5 Speed Manual WAV.
2003 MK2 Galaxy Ghia In Solid Black 1.9 TDI 115PS. 5 Speed Automatic.

Upgraded Eberspaecher booster heater  to independent heating with 7 day timer.

With VCDS lite (full version) need a code clearing or want to scan for faults in the north kent area, PM me.
All for a pint of Strongbow.

travel on the actuator will slowly fail after time and use, check that it moves freely
