This just started. When at driving speed above 60 mph, can feel periodic slight hesitation and can see the turbo fluctuating between 2 and 9 lbs. Notice that the turbo "boosts" just after I feel the hesitation. Engine is stock. Any ideas what causes this or potential fix? Do I just take to dealer? The vehicle is not in a regen when this happens.

Taking your truck to the dealer is a great next step, joerendon. Be sure to take your tech on a test drive so you can demonstrate the hesitation for them. What's the current mileage on it?

Took it to dealer this morning. Turbo actuators are failing, so have to replace turbo. Will be ready by end of day.

Repair went well. Only disappointment is the labor dollars charged for a $250 part. Ouch!!!

Lococoin,
Sorry for the late response. I don't ever use cruise control. It was happening during acceleration and steady driving.
