The Sky is Falling

I recently took my 2006 F-250 to the dealership because it had puked out some antifreeze. One dealer told me nothing was wrong but I wanted a second opinion. The second dealer told me that I had a blown head gasket. It took the dealer a week to replase the gasket but when they went to test drive it they fond that even though they hooked it up right the turbo had given up the ghost. They replaced the turbo and I got the truck back yesterday. This morning the truck idled rough and would rev on its own. The check engine light is now on. Has anyone had a similar experience?

Man sorry to hear that.

Seems like when it rains it pours I guess.

My 05 did the same thing but it was two cracked heads and a leaking EGR cooler. Seems to run fine now but it did stay in the shop for three weeks.

I can only hope that they forgot to hook something up or plug something in when they were messing around under the hood.
