this is scaring me...

Thanks for the welcome guys

OH S**T...something odd started happening today:
...this ain't cool 50 miles from home with 4 horses
after coming up a long hill pulling about 10K lbs worth of trailer. It was about 85 degrees out (i heard the clutch fan working) i then stopped at the top of the hill to make a turn. When i hit the pedal again to make the truck go IT BOGGED DOWN, NEARLY STALLED AND STARTED PUMPING BLACK SMOKE OUT THE EXHAUST.
I PUT IT IN PARK PUT IT IN DRIVE AGAIN AND IT RESUMED NORMALLY.
it did it again 5 minutes later on a similar hill with a turn. (yes I was in "D" both times ... and in "tow/haul")
It has no problems under load on the highway...only when it stops
Im hoping not to cook my turbo. But i also dont want to get soaked at a dealership
any suggestions...chip?...intercooler?

I am guessing that your turbo is coked-up, and needs to be cleaned. Or that your EGR valve is stuck open. Actually, the EGR valve is more likely. You really shouldn't mess a turbo up pulling that bit of weight up a hill. I used to pull 40K (truck trailer and hay) up hills with a 6.0l and never cooked my turbo.. Hold on a second.. Come to think of it, I did get a turbo replaced under warranty. Either way, I was really abusing it when mine quit working on me. It still *worked*, but the truck wouldn't have any pick-up (turbo boost low) till the engine warmed up. The VGT parts were sticking till the engine got warm. Your engine was already warm, so I am thinking that it might be an EGR issue.

What engine is it, also what chip and all the other stuff ya got. I assume its not to old if you are talking about having the dealer fix it!

My bet is on EGR as well. Either clean the one you have or just go to the dealer and buy a new one to replace it with. That might be the easiest way out. You can always clean your old one then and have a spare to keep with you. We tow a bit smaller load 250+ miles quite frequently and I know how you feel. Would be nice to have the spare at the far end of the trip when you need it.
