So i went to go pickup my 2007 f350 king ranch 6.0 dually when the check engine light came on and the dealer said the code was low boost. So they currently have it in the shop and said they are cleaning the turbo. Does that sound normal? The truck only has 46k on it and im paying $28,500. Should I run? The oasis also said it never had warranty work. The truck is almost spotless.

sounds like it hasnt been driven very much. its likely that the unison ring inside the turbo as seized or rusted in one spot instead of being able to open and close the vanes to propperly boost.
Would y you still move fwd with the purchase? They are saying its costing $650. But the dealer is paying for it.
Hey guys thanks for all the replies. So i went back and they said they had the ford dealer clean the turbo and it still was acting up. Plus i noticed the previous owner must have had a boost gauge sensor tapped into the turbo pipe as the hole was filled with JB weld. I ran away and glad I did. For 4k more i got an 08 F450 with only 31k on it (15k less then the 07). And in much better shape. I think I made the right move. Thanks for all your input.
