Yet another turbo failure

My 2011 F350 with 27000 mile on it is getting a new turbo. The failure was not catastrophic but bearing failure. No visible damage to the vanes or housing. From what the service writer explained the shaft had a intermittant drag to it. And does not free spool like the new one. This created a nasty *** whine as it spooled up and down. Annoying as hell, drove it for three weeks this way, due to the schedule between work and family. Besides the whine, the only other symptoms was a terrible turbo lag in 1st and I lost between 2 -2.5 mpg. BTW this is a completely stock truck no mods besides airbags. Still would not trade this truck for any other, and you could not pay me to drive a GM or a Dodge. I love this truck!

Glad to hear. Been wanting to delete DPF on mine so bad but stuff like this scares me and having to put everything back to stock. But glad your back on the road!

I will do the mods only after the warranty has expired but not until than. The way this thing pulls I really don't think it needs more power just better fuel economy. Not many rigs on the road can run with me when I am towing my fifth wheel. Cascade mountain passes are no match for this truck.

I was not aware of a upgraded turbo, when I went to Fordparts.com they only listed one turbo for my particular vin number. If there is a an upgraded turbo do you or anyone elses have any details on it? Part number? What change was made and why was it changed? I woud be very interested knowing.

Check out the "I just blew a turbo" in the performance posts section by dr. evil. He was talking about a new balanced turbo.

Just wait until we get a aftermarket replacement. Should be even better

The service writer that is taking care of my truck said there is a new turbo out that addresses the imbalance issue of the older turbos. I guess they are already on the 2012 and 2013 trucks. But I just got word that an imbalance probably didn't take out my turbo, but rather a lack of oil. They put a new one on and it immediately started making noise. They are looking into it now, I guess Ford is getting involved because this is the first they have heard of oil not getting to the turbo. Looks like I will be without a truck for a while
