I've got a problem with my turbo engaging. recently went on a trip, the turbo haden't been kicking in at all, for quite some time, however on this trip, it did kick in a few times, maybe 5-6 times total (1200 mile trip ) but when it did engage, the rpm's were over 3000.
I've had this thing to a few different dealers, they say its right ! I know better.
Can anyone please help me out ?
Thanks,

Denlawn

that engine is rated up to 3600 RPM..
have you fitted a boost gauge??
what revs were you doing before the turbo kicked in?? was it on demand or just gradual increase of speed?
what mileage has the engine done??
i would be looking at unbolting the turbo and get it checked

Don,
thanks for the reply.
the last dealer i went to said, i had proper boost, i'm not sure he really knew, as he didn't know what
pressure i needed when i asked.
As far as revs, i was pulling my camper, high profile 5th wheel. i would say i was demanding power.
milage is 52,000 , i've had this problem for 3 years.
the turbo was replaced 3 years ago, and has never worked properly.
I'm serious when I say, there is no one around here that knows how to fix it !
I need to find a mechanic that knows the 6.5
I'm located in north west Pa.

thanks,

Denlawn

manifolds partially blocked?.with turbo outlet pipe disconnected from inlet man: or intercooler can you feel any boost pressure?. with turbo outlet pipe disconnected from turbo and eng: off, does the shaft spin?. does shaft spin with eng: running can you see? use a mirror . is the turbo wastegate siezed.

Hi.
I don't know if it is any help but i have some 6.5 ltr turbo diesels in my boat and i can tell that the charter pressure on theese engines must be between 60 and 170 Kpa. (app 0.6 - 1.7 bar). These engines has no "wastegate" to regulate the engine "suction pressure" it is done by a exhaust bypass valve ( bypasses some exhaustgas when the suctionpressure is too higt.) A pressure sensor on the intakemanifold tells the computer how high / low the suctionpressure is and the computer actuate an airactuator to the bypassvalve.
I think that your problem can be found around in this system.
A GM workshop can temp. put on a "mousetrap" on your engine and mesure the suction pressure during driving, and maybe you will see a drop in suctionpressure now and then.
Try WWW.dieselpump.com/chart_3.html
Do not try to block the exhaust bypassvalve mechanical in attemp to raise or stabilize your suctionpressure!!! it can destroy your pistons and bearings.

Best regard Torben :-)
