Hello

The information you recieved was correct, however just cleaning the turbo vanes will only result in this concern happening again. The best way to repair this concern is to have the turbo charger center housing replaced. The new center housing have a special coating to prevent the vanes from becoming corroded and binding up. What will basically need to be done is the turbo will be removed and disassembled and the center portion of the turbo will be replaced. Unfortunately this is not a cheap repair and will cost $1300 to $1400 to have done.

What Customers are Saying:

AlvinC answered a question about my Ford truck that only someone with an in-depth knowledge of his subject would have known what was going on.

Rich DUSA

Because of your expertise, you armed me with enough ammunition to win the battle with the dealer. They are installing a fuel filter and fuel pump at no charge to me.

MollyUSA

I needed help with my car on Saturday morning....got a response in 5 minutes, and it was the perfect solution. Thanks again to your service.

Jason V.Kirkland, WA

I do know, after going though this with JustAnswer, that I can somewhat trust my mechanic but I will always contact you prior to going there.

BRNew Jersey

I would (and have) recommend your site to others I was quite satisfied with the quality of the information received, the professional with whom I interacted, and the quick response time. Thanks, and be sure that I'll be back whenever I need a question answered in a hurry.
