P132B FORD Meaning

The Variable Geometry Turbocharger (VGT) is controlled by the Powertrain Control Module (PCM). The PCM utilizes an Exhaust Pressure (EP) Sensor to monitor the pressure and adjust the VGT solenoid duty cycle. The VGT solenoid receives a Pulse Width Modulated (PWM) signal from the PCM that controls the solenoid on/off time. The VGT solenoid directs oil to a piston within the actuator housing. The direction of oil flow to the piston increases or decreases the exhaust pressure.
