Turbo is squealing

My turbo was squealing and the ford dealer told me it was about to go out so i replaced the turbo today and started up the truck and got it up to about 2500 rpm and it started squealing again. As soon as you ease off a little on the accelerator it stops. it sounds like a motor that has bad bearings. Is it possible it's not getting enough oil? Weak oil pump? If i'm pulling a loaded trailer it squeals significantly more.

Have you checked to see if your oil return tube is actually oiling the turbo? Do you usually let your truck idle before you shut it off?

Are you sure it's the turbo? I've had leaking connector boots squeal like a pig, I'd check all piping and I/C connections and condition of the boots.

where is the oil return tube? I usually don't let it idle more than a few seconds before shutting it off.

you should always idle your PSD for a few minutes after towing or hard driving to allow the turbo to cool down so it doesn't cook the oil in it. extends the life of the turbo, as well as the oil.

Check Deeslfxr's advice 1st with the I/C boots. I know he's not a forums tech, but he seems to know his stuff & has useful tips & info.

There is no oil feed or return tubes on these. They feed/return oil internally through the turbo mounting pedestal.
