6.7 liter blown turbo hose and now no start
I have a 2012 Ford F-550 rollback with 12,700 miles on it. This past weekend while loaded with a Honda Accord the Ford made a loud noise under the hood that sounded like a tire blowing out. I was pulling away from a traffic light at the time (flat ground/land) and running about 25MPH. The truck began to run rough, and smoke from the exhaust.
Pulled into the median and found under the hood that the plastic hose coming off of the turbo had blown into pieces. The clamps were still in place. Was only a mile or so from the Honda dealer and had to get my customers car off of my rollback. Was able to limp the truck down the road. Was barely able to get the car off of the truck. A short time later the truck began displaying "cleaning exhaust system" many times in a row then showed "reduced engine power". Then it shut down completely moments after getting the Honda off of the truck.
Had the rollback pulled to the Ford dealer. The dealer replaced the hose, and cleared the trouble codes, but the truck will not start. They spoke to the Ford Tech hotline people, and at this point everyone is clueless. I do not have a problem with the dealership or their service people they have been trying to help. Received a call from them today advising to expect the truck to be there at least several more days. They are going to remove the turbo to check the back side of it, and then do a manual compression check of the engine since all other systems seem to be working properly.
