If the terbo is not working then there will be lots of black smoke. If your truck is down on power check your fuel filter also the air filter too . Usually when a turbo goes bad its the bushings waring out and then the fins start hitting the case. You would certinlly hear that. Also a worn turbo shaft will allow oil to pass into the intake tube too......Shut the truck off, pull the intake boot off and grab the tuebo shaft by the nut on the end , spinn it and then try to rock it up and down to check for play. There should be none or very little. Check all this before getting all excited and going out and buying a new one if its not needed......
