2011 Blown Turbo Job 1

Jumped on the hwy yesterday and the turbo in my truck was as dead as a door nail. No boost psi, super sluggish.

I Live in a small town so the dealer was super close. Kept the truck running so they could see the problem when i arrived. Sure enough they said the turbo is shot.

Truck is stock and only has 19k miles.

My hats off to the dealer, they where super cool and set me up with a rental.

The dealer did not have a turbo on hand so looks like late Monday i will get it back.

This is my 2nd Super Duty i had a 2006 that i traded in for the 2011.

my theory? way too much weight on too small of a shaft

the "fix" is a "super balanced" turbo assembly

A buddy of mine had a chic break his c*** because of that exact same scenario.

Sucks about the turbo. We keep seeing these threads more often, kinda makes me wary to tune. Definitely going to wait awhile to see how these turbo issues pans out.

Damn, another one?! That really sucks! I'm interested in the 'why' reasoning as well.

Is anyone having turbo issues doing anything they shouldn't? I know alot of people come to a stop and immediately kill the engine (not recommended for a turbo), just wondering if this could be part of the problem? Lots of stop and go?

UPDATE

Picked my truck up yesterday, Dealer knocked it out very quick.

So the cause of the turbo to fail was the Turbine wheel in the turbo was not rotating.

They replaced the turbo along with 3 intake manifold gaskets.

I must say, the psi for the turbo gauge is the highest it's been since owning the truck, i'm digging that.

The truck also seems to respond a lot better then it did in the past, meaning more turbo power.

I'm glad it's all fixed and that the revised turbo should fix the issue moving forward.
