Turbo failed truck in shop need advice

I'm stuck on the road during a vacation with my truck in the shop. I have to call them tomorrow to talk about what's wrong/pricing. They said the turbo has failed and needs replaced as its leaking oil into the exhaust.

I kno nothing about the turbo and don't want to be screwed over. I normally figure it out and do the work myself but am unable to at the moment.

What questions should I ask when talking to them. If the turbo is leaking can't the seals just be replaced or turbo rebuilt. I imagine it's a cheaper option the replacing the turbo out right.

Symptoms: truck smokes like crazy on start up, knocks, and no power till the truck is warm. Once warm truck runs perfect and I see no loss in turbo performance.

Any help is appreciated.

Thanks!

possible bad "seals" in the turbo, which a $70,00 rebuild will fix it.

Smoking could be bad glow plug/s. Knocking could contribute to bad g.p.'s. Also, the EBPV could be sticking, causing the no power also.

Really bud, just throwing stones right now. Get to your truck and remove the intake assy, and grab ahold of the compressor wheel and try moving it. No side/side - up/down, then turbo is good. Give it a good spin too and check for wear or chips missing in the wheel, too.
