I am not sure I am mechanic enough....
2005 6.0 with 225K
Bought smoking at auction.
Replaced EGR cooler and Oil cooler.
As a result of that, ended up replacing IPR, and opened and cleaned turbo while it was out. Wire brushed in drill. Cleaned VGT vanes, wheels, etc.
Will not build any boost.
Smokes, most of the time it appears to be light blue, but hints of white.
Now, after a few minutes drive, there is ALL KINDS of noise coming out of the turbo.
In addition, it now will not charge? No apparent reason.
Is the charging problem my root cause?
I just had to take a job with a substantial reduction in salary. I need this truck to run, or I will have to dump it, and get some beater car.
