Rat chit in the turbo intake side...what now???

Hello,

So i've been isolating a problem in my new to me 95 e350 7.3 ambulance. I have it narrowed down to the turbo being full of rat chit.

Do i pull the whole turbo and try to clean it out? If so, is there a good step by step write up on that?

Or do i clean what i can out of it while its still on the engine?

Long story short...its been sitting 4 yrs...i picked it up cheap...only 91000 on the ticker.

I would remove it. You can get a better cleaning job and clean more of the engine valley and check the wiring, etc etc.

good idea...and fix that fuel leak i just found after i got the turbo out. Wasn't as bad as i thought. I have still yet to figure out how a rat got in there...and must of been a big one judging by the size of the turds. Beats anything i ever seen.

Gonna run it by my local superduty shop in the morning and see about a rebuild or atleast good cleaning.

Thanks,

Jarrett

Got the turbo all cleaned up and reinstalled. Also got the fuel leak fixed. Was the fuel filter sensor. I just capped it and so far it's working. Ambulance runs great now except for a slight wobble in the front right and pulling to the right. Prob just needs 2 new front tires after sitting so long.

Thanks,

Jarrett
