2011 f250 turbo not working good

Customer Question

2011 f250 turbo not working good
Submitted: 10 months ago.

Customer: replied 10 months ago.
The psi is low
Expert:  James replied 10 months ago.
Hello, there are a lot of variables to diagnosing low boost. The 2011 is known for failing turbos. The bearings inside the turbos fail.
Expert:  James replied 10 months ago.
They have redesigned the turbos over the years to correct this concern.
Customer: replied 10 months ago.
But it works good if I press it hard . It just doesn't respond quick . I had the turbo off last week . It started this morning acting that way
Customer: replied 10 months ago.
I even smell exhaust real heavy now
Customer: replied 10 months ago.
It seems more a leak
Expert:  James replied 10 months ago.

The exhaust manifold studs next to the turbo are known to leak.

Customer: replied 10 months ago.
Will it cause hesitation on the psi
Expert:  James replied 10 months ago.

If the exhaust leak is bad enough it certainly can.
