Ok Ford enough -- 6th trip back to the Dealer (Turbo issue)

My patience is wearing thin with this 6.7L and its hairbrain turbo --- check engine light (AGAIN) and this time it looks like the turbo is wasted --- rod, wastegate, whatever problem.

New(er) trucks should not be doing this especially when one shells out close to $45K on these.

Techs at the Ford dealerships have been very good. For this problem Ford replaced the ENTIRE TURBO on this truck. One of the techs I talked to said and I'll quote: "We've been having a lot of problems with the turbos in the 6.7s".

I agree 100%, but we all need to keep in mind that with new designs and new technology, there will always be growing pains. My dad has a '11 and hasn't had any issue in 15K, but I know guys that lost turbos at 10K. With the new stuff, it can be hit or miss, unfortunately. Hopefully, they can get you straightened out and back on the road for good!

Betcha a dollar that 6.7 will out tow that 7.3 and do so in a much more comfortable cab. Don;t come into the 6.7 section to hate, all these trucks have pros and cons. from the 6.9 all the way to 6.7 good and bad comes with them all.

It sure is the "upgrade" -- rebalanced shaft, new (improved) bearings, etc. It's not lagging like before and that pesky Check Engine light seems to be staying off.

I know Ford knows the original is garbage but as usual they're not providing any details --- seems like practically everyone in Ford is "lawyered up" these days.
