6.0 loses power

My 2004 F350 takes off okay, then it starts lagging. It's at the dealer now, but they can't find anything wrong yet. I don't have a lot of confidence in them. The last dealer I took it to took 2 weeks to determine the Fuel Injection Control Module was bad. If you ever have to take a trip through Jackson, MS., don't drive your diesel because this place is a hole when it comes to Dealer Diesel Techs!

I have no idea. I just got it back from the dealer, and it runs a little better, but not like the stump puller it used to. They "cleaned" the EGR valve this time. It was just replaced in May. Is there some kind of additive I can get to clean this crap out so it won't get "clogged" all the time?
