    No fire. That's all oil.

    And the company is shipping the parts here. So more sitting and waiting.

    Gotta love Pam for that. I remember when Rollin's truck broke in Dubois PA. He'll say it was my fault, but I deny it. They were gunna ship from T-town, but i think they got it from Canada or something. Truck sat a while. What was it like a week and a half or so.

    Actually, they just shipped the turbo itself. The rest of parts, they're purchasing from here in California. Also, the condenser has to be sent away to be cleaned, so it looks like I'm here til Monday at the earliest.

    My differential was held up in Canada customs for two weeks. And yes Noggin you were driving so it was your fault...

    Okay , it says you have been a trucker for three years.
    You say you are having your 5th one installed.
    Can you explain how these turbos blew?
    A turbo should last at least a few hundred thousand miles.

    UPDATE: I got out of the shop yesterday. A fillup and a truck AND trailer wash later (you were right, dj, they would not pay for the trailer), I'm starting to make my way out of California. But I also have the old turbo with me, neatly packed in a box. Think they want me in Tontitown?

    Keep that old turbo, your company will want it as proof the repairs were made.
