We arrived in Irving, TX this morning at about 0600. After dropping the trailer we got a much needed and appreciated nap. The phone woke us up at about 1030 or so and it was my mother just checking in to let us know that all was well.
We decided it was time to get up and get ready for the day. At about 1130 or so we headed over to Grapevine Mills to the Cracker Barrel and had a great breakfast. From there it was back to the terminal and wait for impending dispatch. It is rather warm here today, about 98 degrees or so.
The phone finally rang at about 1545 and dispatch said it was pretty darned slow today. They did offer us a load to Orlando but it didn't leave until noon tomorrow and it was a customer load rather than a load from our DFW terminal to or Orlando terminal. We turned the load down and will now head to the nearest Kenworth dealer to get the truck repaired.
It appears that we have a turbo failure happening and certainly have a turbo actuator failure. I will leave that diagnosis to the professionals though.
I will update you as I get new information.
