Asked by Apr 14, 2013 at 04:44 PM about the 2011 Ford F-350 Super Duty King Ranch Crew Cab LB DRW 4WD

Question type: Maintenance & Repair

My F-350 dually lost  power when accelerating while pulling my 1400# fifth wheel trailer. Heard a loud noise and speed slowed to a crawl with jerking motion at first.  Ford dealer tech said they thought it might be the BJT sensor.  Just wanted to know what the BJT sensor did.

No clue what the BJT sensor is.Since this is a diesel, it could be the blow off valve.

Correction: I was pulling my 14000# 5th wheel trailer. Thanks for the suggestion on the blow off valve. I'll ask the Ford Tech rep on Monday.

There is no bjt sensor that i can think of. Do you perhaps meean vgt? It doesnt have a blow off valve.

Sounds like maybe a turbo pressure hose blew off that would make a loud noise and you would lose power

What does a vgt sensor do?

It's a 2011, it should be under warranty.

that is true it is under warranty. but i guess the 6.7 doesnt have a vgt 6.4 did. but none the less it was a solenoid for the varible turbo. so dunno what they are talking about but they will fix it under warranty whatever the problem may be.
