How do I take this off??

So I am about five hours into my oil cooler R/R and EGR delete. So far things are going good and I have not ran into many problems at all. My thoughts so far.

Yes, the exhaust to up-pipe bolts are a *****...you all were right!!

I took the time to take off the front tires and drop the truck...makes getting to the engine much easier!

I also took out the fender wells (which sucked) and that helped with the exhaust to up-pipe bolts.

Down Pipe to Turbo was cake....Up Pipe not so much.

My Turbo was bolted down by one bolt. Rear one missing and passenger side hand tight with threads exposed.

I hate XMAS Tree fasteners!!!

Previous owner had a acorn eating rodent living under Turbo!!

Going to start back up in the morning...I have the intake and oil cooler assembly to go. I cant seem to get off the PVC Valve to the Turbo Intake...I am sure you just pull it apart but I do not want to force anything. Help a guy out???

Mine pulled out with a bit of effort. There are two fingers on the PCV which have raised ends to lock into the housing. Someone had been kind enough to break one of these off for me already, which probably made it easier. Wiggle it around in circles while pulling.

Remove the metal clamp, then it will come loose.
No offense, but in 5hrs time i had everything off the truck, and ready to start install of new Oil cooler. Heck, it only takes 45 min to take the turbo off.

No need to compare how fast we can do things, but correct remove the clamp and with some effort it will come off. Stuff takes a little longer if you haven't done it before or if your truck hasn't been apart in a long time

Good for you...

I am not in a hurry...first time doing this and taking my time. Taking pics after each step, bagging all hardware and cleaning everything. Plus I had the kids running in and out needing things and asking questions.

Thanks for the answer though.

Mine came out pretty easily. I think it had been done before so I'm sure some little clip was broken or something...

Good luck and let us know how it turns out!

BTW...it took me a long weekend to do it all. I could do it much faster now, but it's not worth rushing if you don't have to

FYI...My 03 turbo is going on 5 hours to take off (and I HAVE taken the 6oh turbos apart 3 times before)..


Just cuz your turbo can be taken off in 45 minutes doesn't mean everyones is the same... This turbo of mine has two out of three bolt heads that are stripped

The drivers side front, and the REAR bolt...Both of which are a PITA to get too compared to the ONE bolt the is the easiest




All this crap and I have swapped a 6oh engine 3 times before and did an oil coooler/ egr cooler repair before too...You NEVER know what you will run into so don't disrespect others for taking the plunge and being brave enough to jump in there...




OP:
It should come right out...
yours might need some more loving LOL
