|ford_doctor||The 6.7L turbocharger is cooled by the primary (engine) cooling system.|

Larrgh // ford_doctor ...Thanks for the detailed description. I have checked and have no Leakes. However I was able to put a full container of coolant in the secondary reservoir. Now it's back to the cold fill line. I've deleted the DTC and will drive it today to work. I'm hoping that this is the cause. Not TOO worried about a coolant leak given the fact that I had one recently and a it was repaired. However, it was one of the coolant lines for the turbo. I'm not sure, without looking, what cooling system that is. Geez these new diesels are far more complicated than the old Army CAT I'm used to working on. Gone are the days of simplicity.

Charge air cooler is the inter cooler.
Charge Air Cooler Monitoring
The 6.7L engine is equipped with an air to water charge air intercooler. The CAC is on a secondary coolant loop, independent from the main engine coolant system. The temperature at the outlet of the cooler is measured as TCACDs, however the temperature going into the cooler is modeled.
To detect a CAC under cooling situation, the efficiency of the cooler is modeled at various speeds and airflows via a 3d speed/airflow multiplier table, providing a modeled cooler out temperature. Cooler efficiency * compressor out temperature = modeled cooler out temp. This modeled cooler out temp is then compared to the measured coolant out temp, if the difference is less than a threshold curve or greater than a threshold, a fault is detected and a P code is set.
Charge Air Cooler Monitor:
DTCs P026A - Charge Air Cooler Efficiency Below Threshold
P007E - Charge Air Cooler Temperature Sensor Intermittent/Erratic (Bank 1)
Monitor Execution Continuous
Monitor Sequence None
Sensors OK ECT, MAP, MAF
Typical Monitoring Duration 4 seconds for fault detection
Have you checked to see if you have a tube going to and from the inter cooler that is leaking? The 'cold air' return tube is know to rupture. Many install an aftermarket CAC return tube. I installed the kit from Rudy's. It is also possible the inter cooler is leaking.

DTC P026A. '2011 F250 6.7L Turbo Diesel
I'm starting to reconsider my diesel purchase. It seems like every month I have some little DTC that pops up. The truck runs great but I want to stay on top of these things and it's frustrating. I no more than corrected a faulty EGT sensor and now this code:
P026A - Charge Air Cooler Efficiency Below Threshold.
1. I want the best DIY Repair manual! Recommendations please!!
2. Can anyone tell me where the darn sensor is for the air charge cooler?
3. What would be my best approach to ridding myself of all these DTCs? I mean would bulletproofing do the trick?
If I wasn't bald, I'd pull out a few strands right about now.
