2015.
18000 miles.
While on my way home last night.
I believe I blew the turbo.
While I was accelerating I heard a loud whistling noise and my cab filled with fumes.
It sounded like a jet engine when accelerating our slowing down.
It's currently being towed to dealer.
Anyone else experience this?

Welcome Matt.

Turbo sounds like a good guess at this point. Sucks it happened though! Be sure to let us know what the dealer has to say.

Supposedly a 02 sensor came off and shot out the exhaust.
Anyone else hear of this or had this happen?

There has been multiple people who have had the Nox sensor pop out of the downpipe. Mine has done it twice I now carry a 29mm wrench in the truck.

Thanks for the info.
I'm going to pick the truck up now.
The paper work and talking to the mechanic will tell me which sensor it was.
Does yours get real loud and spit fumes when it happens?

Yeah it gets loud and I ended up driving home with the windows down in the middle of winter because of the strong exhaust smell.

After talking to the folks at the service department. Same sensor same experience. Except it was only fall.
Put on 200 miles today after getting her back.
On a plus note.
No problems and got around 26.5 mpg

I’m not going to worry about the warranty. I’m replacing them with grade 8 bolts and a new gasket when I get a free day.
