Question 2015 Cummins 6.7 with P0046, P00AF, and U010C codes

Hi Folks, I'm wondering if anyone has some experience that might help me make a decision.

Along with the codes in the subject line, which are all active codes, I have a P003A stored code. My truck is a 2015 Ram 3500, all OEM original exhaust, etc. and has 167,000 miles on it. I have researched these codes and mostly think I am going to be needing to replace my turbo, as well as the actuator. I am grasping at straws though with the U010C code in "hoping" I could just get by with a loose connection or blown fuse. I haven't done any investigation into the wiring or fuse possibility yet, but thought I would just throw this out there for people to comment on.

I'm hoping you all have some good advice, but I'm afraid I am going to have to replace stuff. Just fortunate that if I have to, I am mechanically inclined so I wouldn't have to pay the dealer to do it. They are quoting me $5,400 to do both the actuator and turbo. I think I can do it myself for around $2,500.

Thanks folks!

I would find a used, low mileage turbocharger, either here in the classifieds, ebay, or a local junk yard and change it yourself.

It's a pretty straight forward job. Quite a bit of parts to remove and reinstall, but you wont need to get anything reprogrammed or anything at the dealer.

If you get a used one, buy a new gasket that goes between the turbo and the exhaust manifold and it would be a good idea to get a new flexible drain line that goes from the turbo back into the oil pan. Like this one :

Thanks rnoggle. I have actually thought of doing that but wasn't sure if I would just be going through the work to replace my turbo with someone else's "about to go bad" problem. I also am wondering about a rebuilt turbo as opposed to new.

Once I get over my bronchitis, I'm going to chase wires and connections before I start taking my system apart.

Good advise about the drain line and gaskets too!
