Turbo actuator failure

Vote and post if your turbo actuator has failed.

This seems to be the most common failure on here and can be expensive.

You might want to add whether the failures were on deleted\tuned trucks or stock. From what I have been seeing it seems a high number of failures were on tuned trucks. Would be interesting to see.

I'm wondering on the bone stock trucks if its likely because of the CCV that plumbs back into the intake, gumming up anything in the turbo over time ?

What are your options if it fails out of warranty. Options as far as fixes that don’t break ones bank

Depends on how mechanically sound you are. With a moderate amount of knowledge, AlfaOBD and some shopping around for parts you can do it yourself well under $1k. A good independent shop should be under $1500ish, the dealer will be $3-4k in a lot of cases.

Not really interested in non fails.
The point is to get an idea of what mileage these are failing at.

But, it's relevant info to also know that some at extremely high miles, like 414K, haven't failed, showing that they don't all go bad early.

I think what that shows is that failure of the actuator depends on the environment in which they live, like many other things on these trucks/engines.

I don’t think it’s necessarily environment dependent. Could just be defective actuators on some of these. Even in harsh environments you should still get over 100k. I see post after post of in warranty sub 100k failures. That’s a bit worrisome. I wouldn’t worry about it as much if they were all 200k+, it’s almost expected there. Obviously you don’t have a defective one. Parts like this are generally sourced from several sub vendors. It could be one vendor putting out trash.
