hose blew off turbo-lost power anyone else?

I was on my way to the beach this weekend. Started up a bridge pulling the camper with golfcart in the bed of truck & got in the pedal pretty good. Heard a loud pop like a tire blew out. Pulled over checked & nothing. Pulled out to go & no power! Truck would not get over 40 mph & that was straining. It was during business hrs. so I called my Ford service dept. I told them my problem & they diagnosed over the phone. They were right & said the turbo hose blew off. I tried to looseen the clamp & put it back on. It won't stay on I found out. Made it to the campground . Called the local Ford dealer at Myrtle Beach & lucky they were open on Sat. They replaced the blown off hose but said that the whole assembly should be replaced.Didn't have the part. They called it the cold side. That got me home. I am scared to get in the throttle now pulling a load. Is this a common thing? What is the fix?Anyone else have this happen?

this is very common. read about it plenty of times on plenty of forums. hasn't happened to me so can't help out specifically on the fix. Im sure a few guys will chime in with what they suggest you do.

Happened to me (twice) after I installed my 4" exhaust. I ended up cleaning the oil from inside the 'cold' hose and from outside of the ''cold' pipe with some soap & very hot water. Re-installed and have not had a problem since then.

Some guys and taken White Rain hair spray and sprayed the tube after cleaning everything real well. Put everything together and let it dry. The white rain will dry and stick real well.

I'M sorry. I told you my hose was the 'cold' side. Actually it was the 'hot' side that blew off twice.

I blew the hose off twice on mine. First time was pulling the camper, but lucky the hose didn't come off completely and I maintained power. Second time, blew completely off. Dealer rebuilt the turbo under warranty and I haven't had the problem since.

I've blown mine off and never hurt the turbo, after the hair spray mod, I've not had a problem. It doesn't hurt the hose as far as my experiences go, so I don't know why they would replace it with the same thing. As far as replacing the turbo goes, I don't see how it would hurt it. Maybe one of the techs can clarify that for us.

Where you tube comes from the driver side of the turbo follow it to the radiator. You will see another boot where it connects to the intercooler. Check both sides of the intercooler.
