Just picked up f350 having issues

I just picked up 2005 6.0. Truck has 44k and 1475 hrs. Drove it 300 miles home and had no issues. This week the truck started the "barking" and power loss. I have searched and found threads relating to this issue.

I drove the truck today and the turbo barks off throttle. Going up hills at full throtle the truck smokes and "misses". The truck seems to have less power since this issue started.

In the treads I have read there are several theories. My question is where would you start?

I am not to familiar with these trucks. We have sprinters with the crd and have no issues. I would like to get familiar with this truck. So far I like it but it's only been 2 weeks. It is a work truck and I want it to be reliable.

Thanks in advance

Graham
