get gauges!

just some info.
took truck in for hpo leak (long crank).got it back dealer informs me changed hpop, then while he's out on test drive turbo went.
i then pull trailer not 200 miles later turbo blows and takes coolers with it.
tech, says changed coolers and turbo again blaims me,says im not waiting to shutt it down.BS, i have egt gauge and use it.this is same tech who cut my shroud in half.
now after only 200 miles i hear turbo going again, so i purchase scangauge for eot and ect.
start truck temps show 240 eot and 190 ect, this is cazy, did he not change oil cooler or is it just plugged again so soon or some other problem?
he said he flushed it but could not get all the soot out of degas bottle.
i guess ill call them back monday.

Been known to happen (unfortunately).

Always ask for the old parts, and even that is no guarantee.

See this thread and know that you are not alone. This afternoon I am taking things apart again for oil cooler replacement #2. This time around I am planning on removing the radiator and water pump as well to check and better clean things out. I am going to pay particular attention to several areas such as the water pump and oil cooler bypass to see if there is another reason for the higher oil temperatures. I hope you get it figured out, and when you do please post back what was found and done.

well if anyone else uses scangauge11 make sure its coded correctly.the code i got off there site was wrong and showed 40 degrees high.i noticed the temp was 40 off after sitting all night and i started searching problems and found a different code.
i still need to tow to see what it hits as my turbo is making noise under load.

that big of a difference should throw a check engine light... fords current programming at 15, but even their old one did as the temperature spread becomes greater....

What kind of oil pressure are you reading on the low pressure side? are you able to check that? 2 turbos (possibly 3) and a previous HPOP issue leads me to think you may have a low pressure issue... but thats just my opinion.

The TSB is vague, but it implies that this temperature split "wrench light option is not available on the 03's and early 04's.

I agree on the possibility of low flow!

This is why I sometimes hate going to dealerships. Once my warranty is out I am going to do all of my own work. Even if a 1/2 day job for them takes me 3-4 days...at least I will know it was done and done right.
