Ford F-350 Super Duty Lack of Power Due to Loss of Turbocharger Boost to Engine

(36 reports)

A severe lack of power may develop because the hose from the turbocharger to the intake manifold can come loose, resulting in loss of boost pressure to the engine.

These 6.0 fords just blow hoses off of the turbo. The solution is a can of aquanet hair spray. Let the engine cool down, and use brake cleaner to get rid of any dirt and oil. Spray the hose and the metal inlet with aquanet, and reassemble. Fixes it every time. -

Turbo hose blew off while pulling 5th wheel trailer and going up hill and transmission down shifted. Dealer told me the hose did not need to be replaced. On current trip from Northern Indiana to Florida the hose blew off 5 times causing dangerous repair along busy highway. Just replaced hose while in Ocala area. Not happy with Ford avoiding a fix for this problem. -
