You have tension on the adjustable rod when you slip it on and off the actuator? If too loose it won't hold the flapper closed.

checked the tension.it was decent.but as i tightened it up,it got worse.so i think my wastegate is shot.it would boost till 10psi and then it felt like it hit a brick wall.And it made the sound it makes when ur boosting and let off the gas real quick.
