Weird issue with my 05 350 today
Ok I was out this AM drove the freeway for 25mi then got off. After about 1mi I came to a red light. I let off the throttle and was coasting until the light turned green. Pressed on the throttle and something was wrong, the truck had no power and was puking black smoke. Idled it to my destination about 1/4mi away and shut it off. Finished my business (approx 1 hr) and started it up, fired up and idled just fine. Pushed on the throttle and again no power, engine sorta chugging, black smoke, returned to idle idles fine. I said heck with it and hammered the throttle this time, same chugging and smoke for a quick sec or two then cleared and started to run fine. Went on with the rest of the days stops (50-60 mi) no further mishaps or problems.
So the question is what the heck was going on here, could this issue be caused by a clogged EGR valve? Or should I be looking somewhere else? The truck is bone stock no suspension or eng mods I am the only owner.
Thanks in advance for any thoughts on this.
