OK if you need the fault code I have 128 27 7
Technician: Mike Mcmillan, Shop Foreman/Triage Tech replied 2 years ago
Okay thank you for that. The sid 27 fmi 7 is a mechanical problem with the turbo. What needs to happen on this is to take the act off the turbo and see if the sector shaft is tied up. Which you probably will find it is then the turbo will need replaced. Please let me know if you have any follow up questions on this. Thank you

When the shaft seized up it will choke the engine off and cause a lot of black smoke
