Boot Split

My first post has yet to recieve any answers.......perhaps it is too looooonnggg.? Here is a simplified questions. This is my first diesel.

Are there any problems that can arise from having a split in the boot that attaches to the turbo via the air cleaner?. (Ie. smoke, loss of power, toasted turbo)

Check my othe post called multiple issues....same problem for a more detailed analisys and other issues. Thanks in advance.

Your engine could get "dusted" by junk getting trough the split and not being filtered!

Thanks for the reply.

When you say "dusted" do you mean destroyed or is it a fixable issue. I have fixed the crack now anyways.

Secondly, oops.....this was supposed to be in the 99-03 problem forum. Can a moderater move it . Thanks.

Moved it for ya. Also, you did GOOD by closing that hole/split. Any "dusting" that has been done has already happened. Cant reverse it. Dont know about the symptoms you described in your other thread. Hopefully a tech will see it and offer some guidance.

Dusting can destroy your Turbo and eventually your engine.

Your might be fine though. It just depends on how long it has been split and what all got in there!

Since this is my first diesel I have nothing ot compare it against yet but the ends of the turbo fins do appear a little worn. The dust that is in the cab is very fine so hopefully no large particles were ingested.

Is there a fuel/oil additive similar to those for high mileage engines that can help cleanup some of the cylinder wall scoring? (If there is any)
