Well I posted a about 2 weeks ago about my boost pressure gauge jumping around. I went out that night to take a video to post here, i revved her up good and bam she dumped about 2 quarts of oil and was shaking violently.
Took it to the shop, I blew my turbo. it was pissing oil all over around the turbo, and where the post for the boost gauge is welded was broken. guess the turbo free wheeled or whatever a little to much.
Ordered a turbo (stock specs) and a 4" MBRP turbo back exhaust. (was the stock on prior). and a cam shaft sensor and another sensor, towards the front of the block. all set and done $1200 Labor , and $1300 for the turbo and exhaust.
Mechanic called me up tonight, he said its still shaking bad but the power has been restored to the truck (turbo). he said he drained 1 gallon of oil out of it (it was that overfilled)
He said he pulled the dipstick out, put his lighter on it, and it went up in flames, so great now I have fuel in my oil. Injector problems.
5 of the injectors are bad and 3 are weak, so I am getting a set of 8 (stock specs) from XDP. $2400 up front, $1200 back when I send the old injectors back. not sure how much labor this will cost yet. its a guy who specializes in ford diesels and charges 45$/ hr.
This is alot of money for a guy who still owes 13k on the truck, and is 19 years old.
point being that i made a mistake getting such a big toy at a young age. (17) and I'd like to help other young fellas not make that same mistake.
Ok my venting is done, cant wait to get my baby back
