I have a 2007 6.0L turbo diesel... 6" lift with 35s... no tuners at any time of its life. It has 173,900 kilometers on it, of various types of driving.. highway, off road, minimal hauling of small trailers.
Today, I was traveling up a steep grade (9%) at a very mild speed of 50km/h. I got to the passing lane and hit the throttle and my diesel emitted a large plume of black smoke and crapped out on me. I managed to limp it to the side of the highway... truck towed back to my place and is now in my driveway.
The truck turns on with no issues and idles without any issues. The check engine light has come on. When idling, there is no sign of heavy smoke coming from the exhaust. The turbo indicator does not move or register any pressure. I press down the throttle and its revs with no issues until 1100RPM... then it starts to shudder, puke black smoke mixed with a little blue and will not power more then 2,000RPM...
I am leaning towards my turbo being blown.. I'm looking for any ideas of what it could be.. I am no where near a dealership to get it checked, nor do I have codes to figure out the issue.
