2005 6.0L Turbo Issues

I recently began to have issues with my F350. When in idle, the RPM's would jump, and then decrease to almost shutting down. Also, at one point, while still running, I could not get the truck to accelerate through an intersection, at only coasting. The engine is under warranty, and the Ford place said it was my turbo. But to determine if the problem is covered under warranty, they are required to disassemble the turbo. If it's not covered, then I am responsible for $2,000.00 in cleaning carbon parts/repairs. If they pull it apart and find damage to the blades, or any other damage then it will be covered under the warranty.If someone else takes the turbo apart to clean and replace any parts, will this void the warranty? And, is there an easy way to clean carbon from a turbo?

You have the right mindset to be weary of the 'Stealership'

They hate Warranting these things and will do anything not to.

As far as cleaning the turbo, there are plenty of write ups on here as well as dozens of YouTube videos that will show you how to do it yourself. I wouldn't say it's easy, just more or less time consuming, but it's doable if you are careful and take your time, and will save you money if you can do it yourself.

But would that void the warranty since the dealership didn't pull and inspect it first. Could they come back and say, "who ever tampered with this turbo broke it"?

Did the wrench light come on. You need a get gauges, the Edge Insight CTS will read what the turbo is doing. VGT should read between 15 to 85%
Check your HOT side of the turbo on the boots use a mirror and a light it comes apart where you can't see it.

I have an Edge Insight installed on my rig, and no, the "Wrench lite" has not come on. No "warning" lights are showing anywhere. And I am weary of changing out parts for fear of voiding the warranty. Since no one has actually looked inside the turbo, I realize there is no way to determine if the problem is carbon, or the turbo itself.

The symptoms you describe don't sound like a turbo issue, it sounds more like an icp sensor issue (poor connection/biased sensor). But, if it is indeed a turbo issue and you have the Ford ESP coverage, there shouldn't be any issues with getting it covered by your warranty...and chances are, if the vanes or unison ring will have enough wear to warrant turbo replacement, as vanes are not a serviceable item. What codes were stored in pcm? With the issues you describe, I would suspect a code to be stored.

ghost...Way u put it sounds like turbo repairs "limited" as to what may/maynot be covered. Is that way its worded in YOUR warr. paperwork? Were u told what diag. done that indicated teardown needed?

Could be expensive gamble/maybe not, but I'd think twice about DIY repair on turbo under warr. Yeah, i see your concern. FWIW..Wierd how DTCs work. My t. overboosted, bad h.g. & no CEL or DTC was set. Good luck on outcome.
