2013 3500 4x4 Chev Duramax issue
« on: September 08, 2017, 11:44:00 AM »
Feel like venting.

I bought this truck brand new. I have never had anything wrong with the truck. I use it for hunting/fishing/traveling towing our trailer. Truck has 55k on it. Kept oil change, tranny service etc. Last weekend the check engine came on in the mountains. Stayed on all weekend went off one day on Monday came back on. Call local GM dealer said bring it in. Ran tests and said complete turbo failure. Big job, cab off just to replace turbo. Nox sensor went out as well.

Luckily the truck didn't go into limp mode, that would have sucked.

Reason why I bring this up  I have dealt with this before on 08 F450 6.8L almost everything you can think of went wrong with the motor and tranny, cab off repairs, injectors, oil pump, radiator, turbo, bed plate leaks, 2nd oil pump, tranny-headache. Maybe it was because it was the first year of the 6.8L. 

Anyhow, GM dealer needs 10-14 days to fix which includes ordering parts and luckily GM is warranting everything. I think it will be time to trade the truck in. I love this truck pulls great. But oh well my Friday vent.

As long as you don't think trading it in will make it easier next time a diesel breaks on you, go for it.

On a good note, you don't have to pull the cab on a Ford to replace the turbo. We keep them in stock if that tells you anything.
:yike:

I can't figure out why it would take 14 days to replace the turbo.  That's weird.

PS your 2008 F450 was a 6.4 diesel, and it was the first year of a really crappy engine. Kind of a huge double whammy working against you there.

Yeah your right it was a 6.4L it was built in 2/07. I saw the Ford cab completely off of the truck and tore down to the short block, but that was in 2010. This ford took 14 days to fix at Bickford.

Only reason to make it easier to trade it in is because the warranties will go next year on the chev.  :tup:

I don't care if it takes 2 days, 2 hrs or 14 days to fix. Just fix it and I don't have to pay for it.

We used to have the cabs off of at least 1 ford truck every day. They've made stuff more accessible now and the need to pull cabs is greatly reduced.  Somewhere I have a pic of 3 cabs off at the same time.  I think @Woodchuck  has seen that picture before.
