6.0 smoking and loss of power

I have a 04 6.0 i could be riding down the road and it will just start smoking black smoke and loose power i let off the gas and its like it fixes itself i get back on it and it runs fine. It doesnt do it all the time sometimes it wont do it for a week but sometimes it will do it 2 to 3 times in 10 min. Please help if eanybody might no my problem.

Sounds like a possible EGR valve or turbo acting up.

I second that had the same problem with my 05 6.0 egr valve sticking and turbo needed cleaned. the reason for the black smoke is lack of air for a complete burn ie. egr valve/turbo problems... GL

Pull your EGR and see if its stuck open. That can cause black smoke.
Also Turbo Veiens stuck open can cause black smoke. But pull the EGR first.

yea just pull it clean and reinstall but make sure you don't damage one of the seals and don't hold it upside down and spray it with anything you don't want any chemicals to get in the upper part of the valve from what i hear
