My 13 Ford super duty 6.7 diesel.

Was headed to lunch and as I was making a turn I heard a loud “pop”, and felt a noticeable jolt. Thought I’d been bumped from behind but immediately the engine started running very rough and had no power. I noticed the boost gauge was sitting solidly on 0. Thought the turbo had failed. I read the codes with my FORScan app and they pointed to the turbo. I assumed that it had indeed failed. A look at a couple of YouTube vids convinced me that I didn’t want to DIY so to the dealer I went.
I started setting myself up to expect a huge bill for this. Turns out this series of SD’s have a plastic air tube on the cold-side coming from the intercooler and they are known to burst which effectively shuts down the turbo.
The dealer installed an aftermarket metal tube and I was out around $500.

I believe this affects the ‘11-‘15 or ‘16 models. I figure most of you with one of these years will know this but thought I’d pass it on anyway. Would have been an easy DIY project but I didn’t do enough research before taking it to the dealer. However, at the end of the day I was happy to part with $500 instead of multiple $1000’s.
It also gave me an opportunity to practice my colorful expressions of anger.

Yeah, mines been pretty trouble free. This and the clogged EGR cooler are the only issues Ive had with it. The EGR repair was more $$ than expected but this repair more than made up for it. This is my first pickup and first diesel and I love the way it tows, makes hauling the 5th a pleasure, once I got used to the feeling I was being tail-gated by a freight train.

We had something similar happen on our 2015 6.7L while towing up a mountain pass. In our case, it blew off the clamp that holds the tube on. The clamp was a "special" compression fitting affair, requiring special tools, etc. Contacted a local dealer and he said just put two good quality hose clamps on it (the ones made to tighten with a wrench). That fixed it for about $50 and we were on the road again.

As I was reading this I was thinking it was a CAC tube having come off the turbo. When I did the bulletproofing on my old 6.0 I had the CAC come off the turbo it was very similar to this. So far my 6.7 which has about 4000 miles on it has been perfect, and I love the power, it is nice to drive and not worry about the engine

Just replaced mine

I have a 2014 F-350 with about 55K on it. Before our last long trip I replaced mine with a aftermarket parts from H&S Motorsports. Not sure if mine was ready to go, but, I didn't want to leave on a 5500 mile trip and have it go out pulling a mountain pass. Easy to install in under a 1/2 hour and cheep insurance!

A friend of mines had let go earlier in the year and I didn't wan the same hassle. There isn't a lot else you hear about on these 6.7's. Glad you got it fixed.

Mine recently blew apart at the clamp. I replaced with a t-bolt clamp temporarily. The plastic is so thin that the clamp can crush the pipe. Not certain what Ford was thinking on that one.

I've ordered the SPE cold side pipe. That'll take care of it for good!
