rebuilt turbo, or brand new

Recommended Posts

I have an 06 LBZ diesel and for the past three years it has been showing an error code for the Vane Plate solenoid and sensor.  I am also starting to experience a drop in fuel mileage, especially when towing my fifth wheel!  Considering the price of the solenoid and sensor, mechanics have told me to replace the turbo  w/ the sensor and solenoid, as the plates tend to rust and carbon up causing them to stick.  I agree with that, but in looking for turbos, I see new ones and also rebuilt ones.  Anyone have experience using a rebuilt?

 

Thanks,

 

Bill

If the reman unit from a reputable place and comes with a warranty I don't see a problem with it. At a previous job of mine we used reman parts often with little issue.
