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
Heard a loud hissing noise. Brought it to the dealer and was told the turbos flex tubes were cracked. Bought the parts from a Ford dealer and brought it to a dealer to install. They installed them and then told me the driver side manifold was deformed and that was the leak. Purchased the exhaust manifold and they installed it. When the truck was returned, I found a new turbo intake tube "free of charge or mention" care of Buhler Ford Eatontown NJ.
