Hey wrench


Recommended Posts

Got an issue that needs your attention. 2014 Ford F-450 6.7 Powerstroke. Turbo went out this morning headed to work pulling one of my box trailers. Limped it home with no turbo boost. After checking cold side and return side pipe for cracks, and not finding any issues there, I’m 99.9% my turbo has died. It has been making a whining noise for 2 months now. I gave it the goods this morning passing granny and that whine got loud and lost all boost. When can you fit this in, and cost to replace? I have a trip to the dunes in Oklahoma next Thursday leaving at 9am. Any issues having it back by then?

Doug, i heard thru the grapevine that he was an aspiring closet vehicle mechanic who wanted to get rich working on diesels. I’m sure he will respond when his back isn’t hurting.

Well, the first step to rectifying your issue is to hop out of that blue oval while it's in neutral and facing down hill.   Just get out, turn your back to it, and text your insurance dude.

The second step is to head directly to your nearest Dodge, Chevy, or better yet... TOYOTA dealer.   And sign on the dotted line.  👍

Me, on text to insurance dude:  "Hey, somebody's Ford is running down a hill and it looks like it might go over a cliff and fall in the river..."  Insurance dude reply:  "For crying out loud, stay out of the way!"

I went down to big Cedar today in my new to me tow rig and from Ozark, the hills were all backed up with struggling Toyotas trying to pull those hills to get to their lil tourney. Wish Toyota would make a diesel full size.............And obvi this is a joke, ive towed with a friends Tundra and they are great

Find a diesel performance shop in your area. Talk to them, most of them like those Fords-(Found on road dead) trucks. 

My dodge turbo went out, I upgraded the turbo and $4,600 bucks later I was running down the road.
