09 turbo cleaning

I am shopping for a CTD. Have not owned one yet. I have read that the 09 has a door on the turbo for the purpose of cleaning out soot. Has anyone cleaned theres? Just wondering how easy this is? Do you spray in carb cleaner or something similar? And is it really a viable solution to the soot problem?

It should be a cleaning port, not a door. All the newer turbos have the cleaning port because of the p2262 problems. Shouldnt be too hard just unbolt it and spray the recommended cleaner in there.

Interesting. I wonder if this is done with the turbo at idle or with the engine off?

This tool is used in conjunction with MOPAR Part Number 68044565AA, Turbo Cleaning Solvent, during service procedures on Cummins 6.7 Liter Engines. NOTE: Refer to TSB for procedures.

Miller Special Tools 10142 CUMMINS TURBO CLEANING KIT

Haven't found the procedure yet. Still surfin...

Here's the TSB. Requires replacing the O2 sensors w/plugs, running the engine to heat it up to temp, then 3 cleaning cycles w/3 cans of solvent (~5 mins each). Then several ignition key cycles, clean & replace O2 sensors. Tool posted above is $250.

Does anyone know if this is an effective long term solution? Other Holset VGT turbos are having the same problem, and the turbos are exploding because of it. I would like to recommend this solution, but I don't know if it is real or not.

Ive taken down plenty of these vgt units, and the problem as I see it is that the buildup would not simply dissapear if you spray it with some solvent-the VGT assembly goes inside of the bearing housing. We usually take the whole turbo down and clean it because of this.

I could see this as a maintenance solution after a full overhaul is done, but I don't see this taking all of the carbon out. Anyone?

I made a thin 15mm box wrench to fit on those two bolts your talking about. I just bought a cheap 15mm from the auto parts store and went to work on it with my bench grinder.......I really didn't want to pull the exhaust manifold.

You can clean your turbo with Seafoam and a wire wheel.
