NEED ADVICE ASAP
I recently just blew up my HPOP. The dealership repaired that along with a new IPR and IPC. When I got my truck back it would fall on its face under slight acceleration (if you put it to the floor it will pick up and go). Also under a load at constant throttle the turbo will fluctuate between 8-10psi. At idle the turbo will just randomly spool up and the motor will rev up to about 1000rpm.
My guess is injectors due to the fact that the HPOP feeds the injectors and my just went (sent metal shavings into the oil when it died). Does this sound like injectors to anyone?
Also the mechanic started to tell me my turbo spools up at idle due to some emissions program I have. Then about an hr later (after he did some stuff and I took it for a ride) he said its my VGT learning itself. So I said ok, well how do I know when its done learning? He said it will stop spooling the turbo. Then about another hr later he told me it will constantly keep learning itself.
So basically has anyone had this type of problem, and more importantly for all you techs out there, what should I tell my mechanic he needs to check? I have had it there 4 times since the HPOP went and they haven't fixed anything at all.
