It will then down **** hit around 2500 RPM's and hold there or decelerate.I can never gain and speed,while my buddy in his dodge pulling a 37' 5th wheel blows right by me. I have to wait till of the hill and then I can start gaining speed again. Seams to rev just fine but not much power. Any idea's. I'm thinking bad turbo. ????????????????
I am thinking possible clogged egr valve, or you need to clean the turbo. I am no expert on the 6.0L's. But if you are having low power issues from what I have read it usually seems to be the egr valve and the turbo needing cleaning. Being I never done this I have an Idea of what needs to be done to do the job. But it will be better for some one else that has more experince with the 6.0L then I to explain it. I am sure one of our great techs will be along soon to help you out.
