About to go Dodge! 6.0 Arrgghhh!!

I have just about had it. I am new to the site, a buddy introduced me and what a great place. Hopefully someone can help me or I swear I am going to go Dodge Cummins this Saturday.

04 6.0 6 SP 4 WD ....Incidents of poor power, excessive turbo lag, poor fuel economy and when driving next to concrete divider on the interstate, the echo from turbo sounds "funny" or abnormal. This is somewhat sporadic but becoming more prevelant. Times the truck can't even get out of its own way. Anyone else? Going to the dealer (Again) this Sat. Truck has 45K miles on it.

without the truck here i cant say for sure, but it sounds like either an egr problem or more likeley a turbo problerm. if the dealer you had been dealing with isnt taking care of the problem, i would reccomend trying a different one!!!

Thanks for the hospitality. Whe I first bought truck in Mar 04 I was really impressed with it performance and power (Had a lot of affiliation with diesel powered tactical vehicles and mechanically savvy as a bogger, puller or racer in my free time ) I am also from a farm so we had diesel powered trucks and equipment there too. The 6.0 is like nothing I have ever worked on though (VVT, high pressure fuel etc...)

The truck has been in several times for similar type complaints where it appears resolved but the problem eventually returns (performance/driveability issues). They (dealership) tells me the egr was problematic and had been replaced. and then of course there's the obligatory reflash so you never know what you'll get when you leave the dealership. (performance/or economy as generally one or the other changes after a reflash).

The filters are good (the water indicator still comes on every now and then but I have drained the system regularly). I get fuel at different places to see if that is the culprit and that hasn't helped either. The crummy thing is the problem is sporadic. Sometimes more pronounced than other times however, perfomance is definitely not the same as when new. I am thinking performance should actually have increases as everything "seasons" (tolerances, less friction etc..). 45K she should be broken in and running great. Thanks for your insights!

I had this same problem on my '03 6.0. They ended up putting an '05 turbo on it. When this would happen, I would have to pull over and shut the truck off. When I restart it, It would run fine. Until one time it started making a whistling noise. They said the turbo fins that open and close where getting stuck.
