Thanks for the reply...
That's what I thought on the turbo... He's not saying anything about any other damage and let her leave without tightening the bolt. Told her it couldn't be tightened because it would split the turbo more. Probably showed her where the housing was splitting simply because the bolt was loose.
Like I say, I a haven't had a chance to look at it yet but from what she describes it sounds like the mechanic is looking to make a payday. Personally, I don't trust him as he's pulled this crap before. We live in a small town so he's convenient. But, he's quoting $1500 to replace the turbo so I think it's time to get a second opinion on it.
He says that this is a common issue with the Powerstroke turbo.
