Ford Edge 2012 turbo booster issue
My check engine light came on and ford service
found it was a turbo booster code. Said the turbo
booster needed replaced quoted at $2500. Decided
to trade car in and have been looking for another
car. 2 months later I'm still driving ford and the
check engine light has went off ? My question is
how likely is it that problem is gone before I trade in
Is the turbo working? You should have a boost gauge which should show positive pressure under acceleration.
personally, not a fan of the 'turbos' ford throws on their cars. If you need power, just get a V8. Turbos are just another factor that may lead to repairs. Sorry to vent, to answer your question: How many miles do you have? If its over 100,000, may be wise to find something else that won't risk needing turbo repairs.
car is working just noticed loss of power especially uphills Is not a fan of turbo either by this model is a 4cylimdr eco boost with turbo to make it drive like 6 cylinder Car has 100,800 miles
If you have a power loss the turbo may be bad. An independent shop should be able to replace it for less than a dealer charges.
Yeah still $1800. But the check engine light wentt off and I wasn't sure if it may have corrected or if that was even possible.
Turbo cars need to be idled for several minutes before shutting the engine off to save the turbocharger bearings. Oil changes are also important and should be more often than a regular car.
Hi There- What did you end up doing? I'm having the same issue with this same car.
I’m having the same issue. My Ford Edge 2012 is very sluggish uphills. Dealership is saying need catalytic converter and turbo replaced. But they can’t assure me that this will fix my problem! So irritated.
The turbocharger on my 2012 Ford Edge needs replacing, and apparently the catalytic converter has to be replaced too, at a total cost of $4,000. My Edge has about 97,000 miles. I have had work done on exhaust and converter issues at least twice before. Not sure whether to invest in this car or trade it in for a used vehicle.
I’m having this issue w my 2013 Edge. They tried to change a switch, didn’t work... $500.00. In, now saying turbo boost needs to be replaced! $3300.ish total!! Just paying the dang car off! Happened twice. Turn the car off and all goes away. Happened both times when raining! Not going to put the $$ in. Very frustrated! Suggestions?
Hi there... I just had my new turbocharger changed but I’m still getting a hesitation or “flat spot” when accelerating from the stopped position.
Does anyone out there make a turbo kit that will fit a 2012 Ford Edge SEL 3.5. Normally drive a supercharged single cab Chevy but needed more room so I picked up the ford edge and now wanting to turbocharge it. Don't know too much about the edge just curious if anyone has made a kit for it
Had same thing in my 2013 edge happened. Same pricing from dealer.. high.. i ended up buying a new turbo on amazon for 317.00 also ordered all new gaskets from auto nation 27.00 job took 5 hours to replace.. runs like a brand new car.. just note 2012 2013 and 2015 generations all have there own part number so be sure to order the correct turbo..
This will be my second turbo charger to replace on my 2012 Ford Edge Limited. I’m not happy about it but since it’s almost paid off, I think it’s best. Does anyone know why these are going out?
