Hose blows off repeatedly, loss of power. Looking for solution.
I changed the thermostat in my 2004 Ford F350 with a 6.0 diesel engine
Did not tighten the big hose enough, it blew off I heard a loud pop smoke came out of exhaust what damage did I do?

Please help
Hose from turbo to aftercooler
has blown off numerous times need answer for permanent fix f250 with 6.0 liter
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.
Pulling trailer uphill and heard a loud bang. Upon inspection found hose from turbo had come off. Tried to reattach multiple times but kept happening. Not fixed yet.
