black smoke no power 6.0

I'm new to the site and new to the 6.0. Recently it starts hard lots of white smoke when it cold, does not smell like coolant but the coolant is going somewhere,when first started it idles fine but wont pull off, almost goes dead. also when I stop at a red light or stop sign and give it some throttle to pull off I get a big puff of black smoke and no power what so ever.The fuel mileage has dropped to around 14 mpg. The turbo seems to be spooling up building about 15 to 20 psi at 2000 rpm but doesnt seem to have any power. Any and all help is appreciated

It sounds like your EGR cooler is busted and the coolant is probably getting onto the EGR valve and it is sticking. Pull the EGR valve off and look at it. It's to the left of the fuel filter housing. Has 2 8mm bolts and you can get a pic of it by looking at the 6.0l bible online. Take the bolts loose twist the valve and pry it out.

Sounds like a sticking egr valve. Had a tow truck that would just blow black smoke and no power, ended up being the egr valve, it was caked with crap completely. Get you some b-12 carb cleaner, pull the egr valve and clean the crap out of it.
Edit*** didn't read the part about losing coolant....what everybody else has said so far. blown egr cooler... buy the delete kit and never worry about it again..

uh oh

I need big help now, I replaced the oil cooler, and the egr cooler with a product from bullet proof diesel. At one point in the dis-assembly my ratchet slipped and broke the plastic up tube that the oil filter slips on, does anyone know what that thing is called so I can find a new one?

We just call it the oil filter stand pipe, our parts supplier seems to know what we mean they have always sent us the right thing.
