I am not sure I am mechanic enough....

Cliff's Notes:
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.

HELP!! Please!!

Sometimes its not a good idea to use wire brush type tools for cleaning. Wires come loose and can get left in the unit on re-asembly and may cause mechanical problems.

Blue Smoke



Blue smoke is normal when the engine is cold, but excessive blue smoke means the air-to-fuel ratio is too high. Blue smoke can also result from contaminated fuel or a plugged injector.

Be sure to check all exhaust and compressor connections on your turbo you may have a leak causing low boost.

No offense, but these trucks are not cheap, just on maintenance alone. It might be better just do that anyway. Not trying to depress you, just being realistic.

Charging problem seem to be resolved.

There is still noise coming out of turbo. All clamps have been double checked on both the turbo, and charge pipes.

Scanner has revealed that #5 injector is a problem. No change in idle when the scanner tells it to disable, but there is an idle change with all other cylinders.

Is one cylinder misbehaving enough to cause the no boost situation?

I follow you here. This truck will lead the good life if it decides to play along. I am meticulous on maintenance, and it's new life will be a breeze compared to previous life. I just need to know if it's going to play along or not.
