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.

    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.

    Going down the road pulling 5th wheel, heard loud noise. Truck started going slow. Had to replace small blue Ford Turbo Hose. Cost over $85. Now the emissions light stays on.
