Service Engine Light came on!

Was just driving normal at about 40 mph and beep the check engine light came on. purchase the truck two weeks ago with 70 miles on it. read the code on it and it came up as p132b something about Turbocharger /Supercharger Boost Control A.

i chose not to reset and take it to the dealer in the mourning. the truck seems to have lost power but is not in limp mode. i notice that the turbo is not producing much psi at all and my mpg over the last thirty miles have dropped significatly.

am i the only one this is happening to?

Hopefully not a huge problem. If it makes you feel better a Dodge 6.7 Cummins died on me when I was test driving it. The salesmen gave me a funny look and I just said no thanks!

spent about two hours at the dealership and they ran a bunch of parameter test and came up with nothing. the tech sent ford a request or something like a request asking ford (6.7 technical dept?) what to do and they told him to start taking my truck apart to do smoke tests, starting with the exhaust. i told them hell no! told him to clear the code and if it came back i would bring it back. i need the truck to pull my boat this weekend.

well if it happens again, defiantly need to have it looked at thoroughly. I know when ford finds a problem with these trucks they will be redesigning what is breaking unlike the 6.0 and 6.4. Sense this engine is their engine they want things to work out

I'm a bit confused. I thought you said (paraphrasing) that the turbo was hardly showing any boost, the truck was performing sluggishly (but not as bad as in limp mode), and your mileage went way down. Did all of these problems subsequently self resolve? If not, seems like you need to have it properly diagnosed and repaired.

I do agree with you that shotgunning a brand new PS is sickening! A local inexperienced (I assume) mechanic tearing apart your new diesel motor in an all-out shotgun mode ensures the motor will never return to factory original. You may want to try a different dealership, perhaps one that has a really good PS guy. Seems like the codes should lead them in the right direction. A second opinion would be wise in this case.

Sorry for your woes, and Good Luck!
