Barking/coughing/burping at highway speed, loaded
I bought my 6.0 a little more than a year ago. I’ve had it in the shop about 5 times, three of those; I had to pay the $100 deductible. I’m still glad I got the extended warranty though that is something I rarely do. What’s happening now is that the thing barks at me. It only happens occasionally and only for 30 to 50 miles when I’m pulling a trailer. I have a 26’ bumper pull camp trailer, and it also happened when I pulled a heavy equipment trailer with my son’s ’94 Dodge 4X4 on it. Its sounds like there is a lab sized dog in the cargo bed. When the “bark” occurs, there is a power loss for a fraction of a second sort of like a quick lift and reapplication or a flick of the throttle. Also, there will be a puff of black smoke. It doesn’t happen all the time. It comes and goes but when it starts, it continues for a while. It only occurs mild to moderate application of power. If I put my foot in it hard, it won’t happen. I hope I’ve described this clearly enough. Any ideas?
Thanks for the warm welcome. Any help with this will be greatly appreciated.
