2004 lower than normal towing power
Hi have an 04 6.0 SD. Has about 85k miles. Over the past few years I have had the oil cooler replaced, bullet proof egr cooler installed, ficm replaced down pipe replaced and turbo cleaned. The truck is more of a run around truck but I tow an 18 foot camp trailer a few trips a year. No mods all stock except for the egr cooler
I towed this past weekend and the truck seemed to struggle pulling hills. When I first bought it new, I towed my trailer through Colorado and was very impressed how well it did. This past weekend, it just seemed to work overly hard. Also, I could smell what seems like burnt oil on a hot motor after stopping.
Any thoughts on what might be causing the lower power? Runs and starts fine. Just seems weak.
Thanks in advance. Jeff
