While pulling a hill with my boat, I heard a hissing sound from the turbo then I lost all power including the turbo. Also thick black and blue smoke was coming from the exhaust that smelled like burnt oil. All the gauges read normal. No check engine light. I turned the truck off and now it won't start. I think I blew the turbo..Anyone have have any ideas??

I have a 2002 7.3 automatic...

thx

Hopefully you blew an intercooler boot only but doesn't seem like it.
Pull the intake off the turbo and see if there's a ton of oil in the intake post turbo and on the compressor wheel. Then grab the shaft and wheel and see how much play there is. Should be very, very little movement.
Normal gauges on the dash mean nothing btw.

There is a small amount of oil on the inlet compressor..Compressor wheel appears to be frozen, can't move it. That's as far as I got. Intercooler boots are good.

Small amount is normal from the crank case vent. But frozen wheel is bad :doh:

Cracked spider will not cause a seized shaft.
