I think i blew/ started to blow my turbo..school me. I think my turbo is on the fritz.... What do I look for? What are the symptoms?
When I go to accelerate I can mash the pedal to the floor and it takes 4-5 seconds before it will go. When it goes it goes, but it takes forever! At cruising speeds 45-70 in my area depending on the road, it jumps and bucks like crazy.
I'm hearing a slightly different whistle from it than normal.
Also, when I shut the truck of, there is a horrible knocking/grinding noise real quick like, like a fast 3 count.
I have really bad compressor surge too.... A wicked wheel is on its way....
