2012 Edge Ecoboost Turbo Failure

Recommended Posts

Sadly my extended warranty comes to an end next month. After this will will only cover the cup holders (I think).

The best insurance is to do all of the preventive maintenance, and other stuff not required (such as changing the PTU, axle, brake and pwr steering fluid$). I also authorize most repairs the service department recommends. Fix it now before it causes others parts to weaken and fail. (I.E. a worn Tie rod end thats getting worn will put extra stress on the rest of the suspension and drive leakage).

I had some serious reservations about the turbo but ultimately decided to buy it... Now here I am 4.5 years later in the same boat that I'm realizing a lot of people are in... I was just curious if anyone has replaced their turbo with a non-OEM product and had better results, or if it is just safer to do a stock replacement and hope to get as many miles out of it as you can?? I'm sitting at 110k miles and was told today that I will surely need to replace the turbo soon.

I would not trust aftermarket. What are your symptoms?

I am actually interested in the symptoms as well. When mine failed it was in for two things (AC Compressor conked out and the continual transmission woes). After the service department got the compressor fixed they were test driving it and still diagnosing the transmission they said it threw codes and the check engine light came on along with low power. I still wonder how it failed all of a sudden with no symptoms apparent to me. Of course as it was under extended warranty and I was already paying the deductible for the compressor and the transmission fix so might as well throw in a turbo.

What's the most common failure with the Turbo? Is it seals or the waste gate linkage wearing out? I would think the linkage would have been updated by now.

to date, the most common failure has been the wastegate actuator/linkage.  occasionally, the c clip will pop off, but not as common.

 

common does not equal frequent.  no need to update design if it does not even merit a tsb.
