I nursed it to salt lake city, was quickly informed they needed a copy of the paid receipt, wich I produced, I was informed Mack wouldn't pay any on the repair

So I headed for Mackpro, hit a deer along the way, knew I shoulda put on a cow catcher a couple years ago.

Can't wait to see my fresh paint and cow catcher

And there was no problem with Mack warranty on the vgt actuator

Need to check the connection at turbo they get loose because the fan is always blowing on it, if they have never been replaced this is or will be a issue for you later causes 45 code not expensive to fix 3 pins and 1 hour labor with key on engine off if you wiggle the connector and its loose you should hear the vgt surge air psi attemp to move, hope this helps sorry to hear about the unexpected deer hunt .
