Your turbo and/or actuator is bad. If the actuator is fine and most likely if your truck is a 2013+ it is, then your turbo is full of soot and sticking or stuck. FCA was trying a cleaning procedure for a while that involved drilling some holes in Turbo and EGR cooler and pushing a bunch of cleaning agent through them in the attempt to get the soot out. From what I have thought I heard, they no longer do this and either replace turbo and actuator together for warranty work or want you to pay like $4,500.00 for replacement turbo/actuator. They may still do this as a preventative measure but I donít think it is an accepted repair any longer due to a low success rate, even if it restored function to turbo, problem was reoccurring in a fairly short period of time. Iíve read at least a hundred posts like yours and it seems half pony up the money to the dealer or the other half do a 2nd gen. fixed vain turbo swap and delete truck. FYI, I have a mint 2015 stock turbo system removed with 15,000 miles or less and a modified stock 63mm Fleece Cheetah VGT turbo (5,000 miles) and new Steed Speed T4i exhaust manifold (doesnít work if EGR cooler is still on truck) both turboís work on completely stock truck, manifold is only for deleted trucks. Cheaper option than paying dealer and you keep exhaust brake. PM if your interested and sorry about truck, but fairly normal issue for that mileage. Good Luck, Tom J.
