At 200 miles, when the check engine light came on, you were near Deming NM. Only 3 1/2 hours back to Pedata. At Tucumcari, you are 600 miles from Pedata. It would have been much easier to resolve this problem back at the dealer. As has been mentioned, turbos have moving bearings that are lubricated and cooled with engine oil. From what you described, it should be covered.

Bummer, and no doubt we all feel for you here.

Let us know what the dealer says. Turbos arent cheap, so we all have our collective fingers crossed for you.

The coking doesn't occur at once, it happens over time. And what I stated is Cummins official, printed info.

If a bearing goes out on a turbo it quits working and you will know it without having to hook the engine up to a computer. If something went through it and damaged the finns then it would act different and no coverage. As for John I say watch your ass. Turbos are expensive but not $6000 😢

Sounds VERY SKETCHY to me! Get a 2nd opinion. Take it to another shop & have it looked at.

No argument there! I agree with what you are saying. I am just saying that if you have a emergency shutdown it won't kill your turbo, but it probably doesn't do it any good either.

I'd figger a way to make it stick. I don't turn cheek easy at all. Have made a few dreams come true. The ones that test me get some sort of due dilligence.
