Found the turbo valve busted inside the air drier. Only 6 mo old.

I have a question about air dryers? I am not trying to high-jack the original post so please excuse me. I always thought the the air dryer was a piece of equipment that could be removed and rebuilt. Approx. 1 1/2 year ago I had my air dryer serviced and the air dryer was a large canister very similar to an oil filter only larger in diameter.The mechanic bled all the air from the system and unscrewed the old one and installed the new unit. I have the old unit in the garage. The price of the new air dryer was approx. $240.00. I would think that next time I could change it myself. The mechanic said the key is to purge the air system well.

Yep you can do it, just purge all the air out of the system. Mine had three lines and 4 bolts. Rebuild it and replace.
