I have an 05' F250 PowerStroke 44,000 Mils with an EDGE

Customer Question

I have an 05' F250 PowerStroke 44,000 Mils with an EDGE controller, 4" exhaust, EGR Delete. Problem is intermittent, just started this: 20-35 MPH, engine began sputtering and shut down. After pulling over it started and ran Real erratic and shut down again. During these erratic operation i seen the Turbo going crazy (Full Boost to negative Boost) as well. Third time it started fine and continued 5 miles to home with no problem. This was the Last problem. However a week prior, upon leaving the store it felt and showed no Boost! I limped it home 1.5 Hrs. and next day started and drove no problems.
Any Ideas? Thank You!

HI. Did the new turbo come with a new VGT solenoid?

I believe so, as It was supposed to be a New Unit.

You may want to try a different VGT solenoid. Or even the old one if you still have it.
