6.7 turbo fail every few thousand miles...

replaced turbo on my 2011 6.7 at 34,000, 37,000, 41,000, and now 52,000. the truck is bone stock. doesn't make much sense to me that they just keep replacing with the exact same kind of turbo....what happens when my warranty runs up? i also have the "death wobble" in the steering wheel and my dealership is dumbfounded....don't know how to fix. any input on what the heck is going on??

i get it anywhere from 40 to 70. its just when i hit a bump just right and when it happens i have to slow the truck down to about 20 to get it to stop. seems like something ford would tend to pretty quick. kinda unsafe when it happens...

6.7 turbo fail every few thousand miles...

If they fix the same problem 3 times in a row I believe it qualifies for lemon law. Not sure but maybe a buy back is in order?

Do a google search for your area. Usually if you start the procedure ford will send a team from Detroit and tear your truck apart to fix it before they let it go that far.

I think he is past both limitations on the lemon law. Thought it was 1 year 24,000 miles...?

The death wobble is likely to be caused by bad bushings in the track bar assuming ball joints and wheel bearings are in good shape.

As for the turbo, are you allowing sufficient cool off time before you shut the engine off? What is your EGT when you shut it down? Are you running dino or synthetic oil? Synthetic resists coking and handles high heat better.
