Re: White Smoke From Tailpipe

Did they suggest running a additive? Of course Ford pushed their product on me when I had a similar problem that ended up as a failed injector. I've yet to have any turbo problems to date but feel it's coming down the road. So I'm sticking with their suggestion until I find info of something better. I like what Pat posted and may switch.

Removed and replaced chra assembly
Removed and replaced unison ring
Cleaned turbine housing vgt vanes
Reassembled turbo per wsm
Replaced hardware per wsm
Do you let the rig idle a bit after driving? Good idea especially if coming right off the highway. The turbo can still be spinning at 80,000 rpm if you just shut it off after driving at freeway speeds. With no oil pressure it can take a toll on the bearing. Also, the oil in the turbo gets superheated if the EGT is still high--I let mine cool to 400F before shutting down.

Re: White Smoke From Tailpipe

Dave, they did not recommend an additive, although I plan to start using one again. I seriously doubt an additive would have helped in my situation since I had the turbo replaced less than five months ago.

Zeta, yes I let van idle a bit after driving on freeways. I do not monito the EGT temp, not sure if scanguage 2 has this option. However I'd make sure the radiator and transmission temps are back to normal.

With the Scanguage, I would just get an analogue Exhaust Gas Temp for $200 and tap the pipe that exits the exhaust manifold to the turbo. Place the temp probe there. Edge Insight or SCT both have digital monitors that replace the scanguage, with an optional back up camera.

That aint good geoff. Did they rebuild the turbo or put in a new one? Seems strange it only lasted a few months. I sure wouldn't be happy if they rebuilt it or stuck in an old one. Who did the work? I've had my share of engine trouble but knock on wood, no turbo problems at all with my 06 @ 70K.
