6.0L Motor Problem
I have a 2006 F-250 w/ 6.0L Powerstroke and driving home today, it started to smoke badly and lost all power. It still smokes now, and the engine light has now came on. Have no power, cant get truck over 5 mph. Almost seems like it's starving for fuel. This happened about 2 weeks ago, lasting for about 2 minutes, then cleared up and has ran fine since, till today. Anyone have any idea what could be causing this. Will be calling dealer in the morning, hoping for any suggestions.
I ended up having truck flat bedded to local Ford dealer, and the problem was diagnosed as an EGR valve that was stuck open due to carbon build-up. So far, problem remedeed.
Same thing happened again next day. Took truck back to dealer. Mechanic removed EGR valve again, same build-up. Pulled intake, filled with carbon. Intake will have to be replaced, and will need another EGR valve as well. Bad day keeps getting worse.
