Angry bad turbo bad!

Just for other folk's info. Two weeks ago driving down the highway 65 mph lost all boost no noise, nothing on the gauge, no power. Let it sit overnight...same thing..next day tapped vgt valve with screw driver and checked connections boost came back. (I dunno if coincidence?)seemed ok though, of course engine light stayed on. Took to dealer to reset ,had codes p0299 p2263 p1266 after extensive testing including checking resistance of vgt solinoid dealer ordered complete turbo assy. and installed next day dunno if it really needed it but runs great now. truck has 8000 miles would be interested in your thoughts Marc?

honestly the majority of turbo failures i see are due to carbon in the turbo vaine system that actually allows the vains to open and close more. some just fail, and there is nothing you can do to prevent or predict it. Most i replace are actually on soccer mom excursions and old guy superduties that dont get on the throttle enough. these motors need to get opened up every once in a while and driving them really easy is actually tougher on the motor as a whole than driving it at a "medium level" most of the time and then sometimes driving it like you stole it just to run the carbon out and keep it clean. the turbo system is the biggest benifactor of doing this.

i honestly have only replaced two VGT's that actually fixed a problem. i have, under the instruction of ford tech hotline, replaced many VGT's.....but i came to the conclusion long ago that it is rare that they actually are the problem. odds are when you tapped on the VGT, you actually freed up some of the carbon in that turbo and that is why it came back slightly for a short period of time............Marc

we have seen some just fail.......its pretty unpredicatable though and there is no way to really prevent it if it is driven normal to hard.......

p0299 is turbo underboost, 2263 is turbocharger performance not at expected, 1266 is not in the code list and i would have to research it further if you were really curious......but im sure it is a turbo performance code also.....Marc
