6.7 turbo failure synopsis

Not trying to stir the pot, I'm just doing a little info gathering as I'm strongly considering a 6.7 at some time in the future. If you've had a turbo failure on your rig, could you post the year (and job # if you know it) and model/configuration (IE- F350, F450, F550 and if it was a pickup or cab/chassis). Also it would be helpful to know if the vehicle was stock or modified, if modified please list the mods.

We have assumed that all customers who have lost a turbo have been tuned and for the most part the customers have confirmed that information. We have yet to be called on a turbo that failed on a "stock" truck.

I hope this helps

I'm glad I'm not the only one that failed to see the relevance of that post!

I guess it would be helpful as well to know how many trucks HAVEN'T had a turbo failure, but there is already at least one thread for that topic.

No, you didn't really. You replied based on your assumptions that most of your customers had lost turbos because they had modified their trucks... then you edited your post and now it almost answers the question. Re-read my original post, my questions were:

Has the turbo on your 6.7L failed?
If it has, was it modified?
If it has, please list the year and model

You have said that "most" of your customers with turbo failures have had modified trucks... ok. Is that 4 trucks? 400? 4,000? Is the year/model information even available?
And what do you mean by

"Stock"? OK how about this for clarification- by stock I'm referring to motor modifications... most specifically tunes and/or deletes that bump the power levels up from stock.

Not that it matters much anyway because of all the threads I've gone through on this forum alone about turbo failures, not one person has chimed in so far.

Nice Edit CFD. I really don't think you have a chance of making it much longer on here.

Mine is a 2011 F550 chassis w/ 84,000 miles on it & is completely stock. It had a turbo failure at 20k. Then again at 30k. Then it had a reprogram that was going to correct the issue. The truck worked ok until 65k when it broke the exhaust valve & destroyed the engine. They installed a complete engine in it with a new turbo again. Well at 83k the turbo let loose again. Took it back to the dealer and they replaced it. On their test drive, the bottom end of the engine failed. So back again and this time they installed a new short block.

I was alarmed this last time since they said they found sludge in the oil pan? The truck had around 15,000 miles on it since replacement and had 2 services in that time. It was due for it's next service when the turbo failed. We use Motorcraft 10w30 oil & filters from the dealer. They couldn't come up with an explanation as to why the sludge build up in 4 1/2 months of service.

My dealer says that they have literally no problems with the pick ups. The cab & chassis models have different exhaust, heads & turbo configerations as well as programing.

I don't know what the next problem will be but i do know that it will have someone elses name on the title when it happens....

Thanks,
Ed

Ed, thanks for your input... that's quite the horror story! The problems seem to be mostly with the C&C trucks and the early 11 models.... which it sounds like yours is both.

I just got my truck back from the dealership for scheduled maintenance (60k mile service) And it came back with a shiny new turbo. I will give you a link to my thread when I write it.
