Pictures of turbo.

After posting this thread. What are signs of failed turbo?

Today after work I had some time so I got to taking off the turbo. Here are some pictures. I need advice from somebody a bit more knowledgeable than myself.

1. Should I be able to spin the turbo wheels by hand?
Should the edge of the blades be bent over?
Should the shaft be way off center?

2. Should I send this out for re-build if possible or just can it for a new one?
3. Any ideas what caused this? Hot oil? Debris? I never had any problems before this. Had a warranty egr cooler repair about 10K miles ago. They did not change the oil cooler I believe.

Yes it should spin by hand. The bent blades are part of the impeller design

If you can spin it by hand check the side play. I agree it may be shot. If you want to rebuild it yourself you can get just the center rotating assembly from ford for about $700


Edit: I did some searching for you and I found it for and 2004 to 2007 , but I am guessing yours is a 2003?

Thanks guys.

Mine is an 06. Pretty much stock truck with 52K miles on it.

This wheel is seized right up, won't budge.

I'm thinking of trying a powermax, anybody have anything else to recommend?

I think I'll do an egr cooler/oil cooler swap as long as I have to top of the motor off. And fuel springs, and banjo bolts.

Edit. New air cooler boots and clamps as well. New Orings for turbo oil feed and drain.

Should I take out the air cooler and have it cleaned to remove oil residue, or will that bake/pass over time? When the turbo went I drove about a mile to the driveway and left it to sit.

Powermax is the best aftermarket turbo for the price on the market today. The only issue you'll have with a stock truck, is you'll have a quite a bit of turbo lag on the Powermax. Which is solved with custom tuning on an SCT.

Do the CCV ( crank case vent) mod so no more oil will flow into your cooler boots and turbo and intake and CAC. YES clean all the oil out of your charge air cooler an intake.

You think if I take it to our local radiator shop if they put it in their caustic dip tank it will be alright?
