My 2017 SL is going to need a top end turbo. Reaching out for advise…. Check engine light is on, throwing codes for everything from the egr to torque management (???). The slip indicator light comes on only when I’m towing and the whole hard shift, jerking thing starts. I’m getting a fair amount of black smoke now when it’s towing, assuming that the DPF is toast. The reduced engine power warning came on but it goes off after about 15-20 seconds. I haven’t been put into limp mode yet but I’m worried if the problem gets any worse that’s the next thing. My question is #1- what after market options are out there for the turbo issue. Nissan is saying the turbos are 5-6 weeks out.
#2- is there a solution for the slip indicator issue, I’ve read a couple threads that dealt with that but not sure if anyone figured out how to solve that problem. Is that light connected to the other problems or a separate issue. Again, only comes on when I’m towing.
I love the truck but man is this exhausting. Second time out with the camper and I’m parked until I figure out how to move forward. Any advise would be helpful, thanks

Warranty status?
The 5 year 100k warranty technically expired May 26th. I was given a 2 year extension for the motor due to some major problems when I bought the truck… CO4 pump failed. I would think that the turbo would be covered but the initial answer to the dealership from Nissan was no. I have a case opened with consumer affairs, should hear something today or tomorrow. The truck is parked now, waiting on parts… that is why I’m trying to come up with a plan B. If Nissan chooses not to warranty the fix then I would rather go aftermarket and get the truck back up and running than wait until August. I have heard of guys doing builds on these trucks and replacing the turbos… I’ve heard that there is a single turbo option out there…. Just trying to get pointed in the right direction.

Generally speaking on a diesel the turbo is considered a consumable. Especially in heavy duty engines.

Due to the emissions and the way the engine is tuned from the factory, the high pressure turbo is almost always working rather hard. Sure the m2 turbocharger vastly improved throttle response, but for whatever reason the transition point is right in an area the engine wants to be.
