Lost 1 Turbo

On my 13 Ford F150, a noise started the past few months. I noticed a squealing sound coming from under the hood. Then about a month ago it got extremely loud.


Upon investigation by my mechanic, it turned out to be a bearing in the driver side turbo. So, order new tubos and my mechanic Mike got to it. Upon removing the old turbo oil and coolant lines, he found that the coolant line had a kink in it. After removing it, we determined that it cut off at least half of the coolant to the turbo. The ID of the line is only 1/4". I'm sure that had something to do with the turbo bearing failure. It came damaged from the factor, in fact, there is a smaller ding next to it.


Decided not to replace line with an OEM, but got a custom wire braided coolant line to install. He will be installing it in a day or so and I hope that it solved the problem.

My next door neighbor had a 2012 or 2013 Eco-boost. He began having turbo problems early in the summer. Last month he traded it in on a 2020 Silverado 1500.

Hey Mark, how many miles on Your F150? I just bought a 2013 Ecoboost with 96K on it. I'm already unhappy with the fact that it is nowhere near the truck that my 2005 was. I could tow my 26' camper with no sway bar any time. Now I have to add that sway bar, or get sucked into every passing truck, even then, it is a squirrely ride.

Just short of 60k. No trouble with the truck beside the turbo. Pulls great, no shimmy or chucking. Towed the Rv about 14,000 miles so far. Truck has performed very well. Of course, I tow a 5th wheel which tows much better than a TT.



On previous TT I owned from a 24' to a 32' I always used sway bars.

Lincoln with eco-boost problems

I have a 2013 Lincoln MIT with the EcoBoost engine. It has 119,000 miles on it. It has been having problems with the cam phase sensors. My mechanic finally just sent it to Ford. After $367 for diagnostics, ford just says due to high mileage, I should just replace the engine. Since when is 119k high mileage? Sure, just pay 6k to put a new engine in, that will fix the problem.
