Verified

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.

    Turbo boot blew off causing loss of power and being stranded on side of the highway. Had to be towed to local dealer and pay for a $95 boot. Installed new boot myself. Then 1 1/2 years later had the same problem happen again. Poor design and poor boot quality.

    boots blow off of the intercooler pipe when towing my camper. Boost is usuall around 20 to 25 lbs when it blows.I hve replace booth boots , Cleaned with brake cleaner, replaced boot clamps, (Some of the clamps ford sends are too large and bottom out before you get them tight), double clamps top and bottom. Now the boot itself rips.I don't have a solution yet.

    Engine looses power under tow over very mild hills in town. Turbo was replaced under warranty having same problems twice as before. I paid cash for my truck when it was new and got nothing but junk. I am afraid to take it anywhere with my horses afraid it will brake down.
    My next truck won't be a ford. This was my first new vehicle I had bought in years and I got lucky to pick the junk engine. Dealers tell me if I want repairs done it is out of my pocket. Sad thing is I take good care of my truck and loved it. I had low mileage because I had only used it to haul my horse to horse shows and now I can't afford to fix it or buy another truck. Ford should had fixed this problem with these engines.
    Probably a dodge Ram next. All I have ever driven were Fords. :-(

    hoses blow off we replace them, we pull a 5th wheel and we get a grinding and lose power going up hills. So we try to stay out of the mountain.We had the white smoke problem. $2000. Turbo are good. Still can't go out west.We hear all diesel are junk because of the epa and all the pollution devises they put on the engine. Also hear not enought air needs bigger exhaust and breather
