    When my T6 went in for a software upgrade a week after I got it I spoke to the Workshop manager about this idling issue.

    He said to me you don't have to worry about idling. When you stop turn the engine off. He said the turbos in these new bakkies are not like the turbos from 20 years ago.

    He said that applied to town driving aswell as open road driving.

    The manual suggests simply letting the engine get to idle revs before switching off, that's all. No sitting there idling for a period of time at all. This is a non issue as far I am concerned.

    I let mine idle for a few seconds (30-60), it gives me pease of mind and cant do any harm. It is just the way I am used to do it. Old habbits die hard.

    30 seconds is far cheaper than a turbo.

    Hi Thabakoleos, These turbo's are normally very reliable, but there are a view good comments made from the members concerned. First of all you have to monitor the EGT ( Exhaust Gas Temperature ) all the time. Do not let this exeed 510 deg C for a lengthy period. If you do not have a Turbo protection system in your installation, you have to install one or have the discipline to let engine idles untill the EGT reaches 138 deg C before you switch of the engine. I assume that this vehicle is equipped with an Inter-cooler as well as a Oil-cooler. This all help with the reliability of the Turbo and this vehicle is very well known for its reliability.
    Groetnis,
    Graaffie.

    Please, please explain to me, why someone would need to replace the intercooler. This is the second time, I'm hearing about replacing an intercooler... Why?, I dont understand...

    Mine is now 9 months old with 17k on the clock. City, highway and off-road mixed driving.

    Still perfect, thank you

    Let it idle after the engine worked hard, or even better, drive the last km or two without revving the engine and at low throttle input. It cools down the turbo by avoiding high rotational speed and lets though lots of oil for cooling. Never had a turbo blown, race cars or road cars, whichever make, type or how much boost.

    This is just a thought.

    I have always been of the opinion that you cant drive a turbo diesel like you would drive a GTI or a Porsche for example.

    Is there a link between turbos going and guys that hammer them not lasting.

    To me a Diesel is a layed back driving experience.

    I don't know, I hammered by Navara, properly, and never had a hassle.

    Because when the turbo explodes, pieces of metal goes into the intercooler, that can again be expelled into the engine once the turbo has been replaced.

    Talked to Son-in-law this weekend, the Ranger must go to the Ford Factory today , the garage must remove all the new parts installed , refit the faulty parts again , and take it back to FORD . Hope the problem will be solved now !

    Hi Guys
    I have a 3.2xlt 4x4 d/c that my wife drive. I have had only the passanger seat airbag sencor not functioning all the time. The worst problem i have is the fuel consumption but what can one expect from a "lead" foot that my wife owe. Her consumption is 13.9l/100km I am happy with the truck and would recomend it to every one. . So my conclusion is that it might be the odd one that give problems but thats with all makes of vehicle.

    Did Ford sort out the sensor?
    Is it a manual or auto?

    I only had the truck for the service but on my way to tell them about the sensor. It's a Manual and loving everybit of it.

    My 3.2 has about 53000 km and no issues with the turbo. Has done lots of driving against the speed limiter. Its a Garrett turbo with oil supply from the engine oil pump, so I always let it idle about 30 sec before switching off.

    I think they replace the intercooler as a precaution. Maybe there could be some particles in there from the broken turbo?? Don't know

    I also think so and the guys drive this new turbo diesels hard because they can.

    Ek hoop dit raak nie n probleem vir ford nie. Ek hou baie van die nuwe ford maar wil hom nie he as die kanse goed is vir turbo probleme nie. Die bakkie moet so gebou word dat as hy kan hard ry, dan moet hy dit kan vat eenvoudig en klaar!
