Turbo replaced - should I be worried?

Bought my truck used as a 2006 F250 FX4 Lariat Crew Cab with 41,000 miles on her. In talking with a friend of mine at our local Ford dealership, I had him run the Vin# to see if there were any recalls that needed to be taken care of. There were none - good.

BUT, and there's always a but, he said that the engine had been gone into at 33,000 to replace about 10 different gaskets and seals, including head gaskets and then the turbo, fuel pump and fuel pressure regulator were replaced at 35,000 miles.

Now, she runs GOOD, starts fine, no smoke, smooth idle, etc... should I be worried? What are some of the causes to have the turbo and other items mentioned above replaced? The truck was a trade in from a local heart doctor and is in better than showroom condition. The leather seats are flawless and I love the truck but still have a week if I wanted to go back on the deal. Which I REALLY don't want to! AS I LOOOOOVE this truck!

Take care ............Greg

Looking at the actual report, don't they usually mention the customer complaint that spurred the work? That may be the best place to start.

Going to get a print out tomorrow from the servicing dealer. Looks like they forgot to put the hood liner back on or does this model not have one? If so, then they'll be getting me one of those as well.

Take care ............Greg

Yes I do and yes I could. Main reason I'm not worried.

I noticed today that the turbo is a remanufactured model as well - Garrett. Is that also the stock brand that comes on the truck?

Take care ............Greg

Thanks brother. I got around to going to the selling and warranty dealer and got it. Kinda wondering if there was anything wrong with it at all. Seems to have "leaked oil" after oil changes and had every seal and o-ring that could be replaced, replaced. Come to find out, the doctor whom had it just so happens to be one of the dealerships best customers as he owns a farm as well and has MANY fleet vehicles though the dealer. But, I got a brand new engine out of it, so to speak!!!

Take care ............Greg
