Question 6.0 Maintenance

I have a 05 6.0 PSD I purchased new in 05. It curently has 130k miles with mostly problem free driving. I have changed the oil regularly (every 3-4k miles). I do very little hauling with my truck, mostly highway miles. Right now I have a problem with a "dead spot" while accelerating when it is at operating tempature. I read the post pertaing to the EGR valve cleaning and plan on performing that function this week. Any other ideas on what might be the cause? A friend of mine suggested that I have the valves and injectors adjusted. Is this someting that can be done on a PSD and if so is it a waste of time/money? Any other suggestions to help maintain my truck would be appericated!!

Thanks

No way to adjust valves or injectors. If cleaning your EGR doesn't help it might be the veins in your turbo sticking.
