06 spooling and starting issues
I have an 06 powerstroke that has been pretty good for the most part, however I am starting to notice a few issues popping up:
When I start the car when it is cold out or at high altitudes I get a hard start. It will crank for a while and then upon start up the idle is HORRIBLE!!! It feels like a gas motor with a clogged fuel filter.
When I try to give it some throttle under load after I start it, I get NO turbo spool and it just blows a TON of smoke. I even had the truck falter and die once.
I am still getting 20psi on the dummy gauge, and it never runs hot. Did I smoke my turbo? The truck is under warranty, so if anything goes wrong, I want to get it fixed right. BTW, I currently have 71,000 miles on it.
2006 F250 Lariat Stock for now...
