Is my turbo on its way out?
I have a 95' powerstroke. I'm not sure if my turbo is on it's way out or not, it seems to have quite a bit of play in it (up and down). The end play feels ok I think. Does anyone know what the end play/ up and down play tolerances are supposed to be?
Also, my turbo wheel is kinda screwed up, looks like something folded over the outer part of the fins. I've been driving it like this for about a month. But anyway, lately the truck has been acting up. For instance; when's it's cold, for about the first 50 feet of driving it doesn't feel like the turbo is spinning, it loses tons of power and sounds different. But after driving it 50 feet or so you can hear the turbo spool up and it runs normal, it foes thîs every single morning. Today it it ran ****ty like that for about 20 minutes and once it got hot it seemed to run normal again.
If anyone can shed some light on what could possibly be the problem I would appreciate it! Thanks
