Completely stock 2007 Classic with 90,000 miles. Truck sits in the garage a lot and is mainly driven on long trips. The truck is near mint. CEL came on a couple months back. I took it to my local dealer and its been there for 7 weeks straight. Long story short, they said I have a stuck actuator at 15% on my turbo. They have tried the Easy Off solution and made the rod to push/pull the actuator with no success. I have no desire to spend the money to replace the turbo. I'm super frustrated with the dealership's ability to service the truck. I've told them to put the truck back together and I'm picking it up tomorrow. Is this a common issue? I don't find many examples through my searches.

I'm basically looking for suggestions on what to do next. I live in East KY and really don't know anyone that I trust to work on the truck.

Stuck vanes are a common issue with the Duramax.
If the vane guides are worn, no amount of cleaning will fix it.

Vanes are good. It’s the actuator that’s stuck.
