How many turbos?

I was wondering how many turbos people have gone through. My 05 has gone through 3 in less than 18,000 miles. EGR was replace. Intake removed because of coking? Also repaired at the same dealer.The funny thing is. The dealer asked if I drive on the freeway. I asked him why do you ask? He answered was cause we see these kind of problems from truck that drive around the city. The funny thing is it is all highway miles!

There is something they are missing if you are going threw that many turbos. It is not oiling properly or something. I would dig alittle deeper because that can't be right.

I would try to take it to a different dealer and see what they say. It sounds like someone is just throwing parts at your truck and hope it solves the problem.
