another 1 bites the dust...

well my employer bought 3 '10 f350's with the 6.4, all ex cab 2wd long beds this spring, we change oil regularly and about a month ago one was on its way from maine to michigan pulling a 22' enclosed with the turbo went and shot parts into the engine...needless to say warranty covered for a new motor in it and we had to fly to ohio to pick the truck up 2 weeks later. now today on our way home from mn we lost all boost (holding it to the floor we could go 30mph...).... starting to think she's a lemon considering it only has about 13k miles and has went through an engine and now possibly another turbo or somethin. we will see what the dealer says we called em and they said to just drive it the rest of the way then bring it in lol. just wanted to sshare this with u guys , <3 my 6.0!!!

It's possible it just blew an intercooler boot or something. Could also be the EGR valve. It's not necessarily a turbo, or another dead engine!

yep, a boost leak will cause very little or no boost.

Wouldn't it be smoking a little or quit a bit if a boost tube was cracked or off? Is it smoking?
