Turbo whine...

My left turbo started chirping like a cricket. (with a little slide whistle when I hit it hard)

Mechanic buddy said it was a vacuum leak.

I took it in this week for a checkup, 55000 miles. Gas cover door, broken; airbag light, on; turbo whine; and guedo (sp?) check.

Turbo is toast. $800 + 10 hour install -- warranty. Airbag -- warranty. Guedos -- warranty. Gas cover door, they're still checking.

They are afraid of speedo calibration (larger tires)

Tomorrow is 3rd day in the shop. Fusion courtesy car is ok but that 4 banger isn't an Ecoboost.

$250 for gas door repair. $50 for speedo calibration.

I will get it back next week.

Oddish point, the last service rep said that they will replace both turbos as that is how the "part" comes. ???

We'll see...

Got it back.

THEY say, the turbos are fine it was a broken manifold bolt allowing exhaust leak (that's what my mechanic said before I took it in).

Fixed it. (Broke three more bolts taking the manifold off) Broken wire on the air bag.

Fixed the gas door with a newly designed door. Much better design. (cost me $250)

Recalibrated the speedo. ($62)

It runs good. I've got 5000 more miles on the warranty to make sure. We'll see.

I'm glad (for all of us) that your turbos are fine. Are you going to make a pic, to show how the new gas door is better?

Nice. My door is fine, but if I could get rid of the capless filler I'd pay $500 for that.

No. The real difference is in the hinges. Before, there was one small plastic tab on the back side of the center hinge. On my door, that little plastic tab broke.

So Ford can/will recalibrate the speedometer and odometer to compensate for a larger diameter tire?
