2011-2014 Turbo Failures
The Problem: In earlier model Ford Diesel Trucks, turbo failure
was a problem.
Why: These trucks have a Garrett G32 Turbo with ceramic ball
bearings. The reason most of these turbos failed is a result of the ceramic ball bearings in the turbo. Here’s the kicker, we’ve seen quite a few 2011 & 12 trucks with their original turbo and no issue. What’s their trick? REGULAR MAINTENANCE. Changing your oil every 5,000 miles and using good quality filters and oil will prevent this problem from happening in the future! Also keep in mind that these turbos have coolant running through them so keeping up with your coolant flushes and keeping your radiator clean is another way to keep your turbo in great shape!
