Maxxforce 7 Turbocharger Failure – Common Problems
While turbo failure on any vehicle is enevitable after many miles and years of service, the Maxxforce 7 has unique issues that cause turbo failure more often than other engines. The biggest culprits behind a failed turbo on a Maxxforce 7 engine are EGR related issues, and oil dilution.
- Soot re-entering the engine and coming through the turbine housing over time will begin to adhere to the vanes and cause the turbo actuator to fail.
- Many things with the Maxxforce engine can cause oil dilution, but fuel in the oil is certain to diminish the effectiveness of the oil’s lubrication properties and cause the bearings in the turbo to fail. Often leading to a snapped turbine shafts and catastrophic turbo failure overall.
