I second that. Always idle before shut down to cool off some. Good idea on all engines, but critical on turbo'd motors.

Ok, finally remembered to talk to my uncle about the ecoboost. He said that they build up condinsation in the charge air cooler(intercooler), and when driving normally there are no real sideafects, but when you goose it or get on the throttle hard like to merge onto the interstate, or pulling out in traffic, the water gets sucked up into the turbo/ intake system and creates a missfire condition that will make the truck shut down. But sometimes if you let it sit a couple minutes it will start right up and you may not have a problem, till you get on the gas hard again.

He said there is no fix yet and the other main problem with the trucks is there are NO replacement parts available. He said that they have trucks that need parts at his dealership, but they aren't scheduled to receive any til sometime in March

The coking is the oil burning in the bearings on the exhaust side of the turbo. Turb's suggestion is a good one.
I wonder if this condensation is what causes our Hyundai diesel to cut out?
How do you detect it?

Yes. Ford has a patented technology that siphons coolant through the turbos to continue cooling the turbos even after shutdown.

Technology changes. This is no longer necessary.

I beg to differ

I believe turbo timers should be factory installed.

If you seen egt's after pulling a trailer in to a gas station to fuel up you might change your mind.

Well, I'm saying the factory has addressed this issue. Since the original post was about Ecoboost, my comment relates to that. There is anti-coking technology (patented) built right into the Ecoboost. No cool down necessary as it takes care of it itself; even after shutdown.

What you suggest may very well be true on another engine; especially older ones. I'm just saying that we have to be careful about blanket statements because things change and there are a lot of different varieties out there.

I should have been more specific in saying my comment was in reference to the Ecoboost from the original post.

Being a former Porsche tech, and my wife a former employee of Garrett turbo, I KNOW that water will not eliminate the coking effect. Only circulating the oil through the turbo until it's below a certain temp will.

have you priced out a new T1 or T2 lately? Yikes!
