Turbo problem?

Yesterday I made a short trip to the hardware store (10 minute drive) and the truck ran fine. After 20 minutes in the store, I left and began accellerating onto the freeway. The truck then surged..felt like a car hitting a speed govenor and I was only accelerating normally.

The truck seemed to run just fine but it had no power. I was still reading about 20 pounds of boost but it had no get up and go. I went to another store and came out 20 minutes later. I fired up the truck and it ran fine. I took it for drive again this morning and it still ran fine.

Should I take it in for service? I will be pulling our travel trailer on Memorial day in a couple of weeks and I dont want to have any issues.

Ford has been working on this very issue on my 2008 6.7 F-350. I just drop it off at the dealer for their 10th attemp at correcting this issue. I can tell you that replacing all three EGT sensors and the EGR assembly won't correct the problem.

Sounds like it could be a stuck EGR valve

is the EGR usually covered under the powertrain warranty?

Yes it should be covered.

The 6.7 Diesel is covered for 5 years / 100,000 miles and I've not had to pay for anything yet. The EGR Valve assembly replacement was covered by warranty but didn't fix the problem.

We are talking about the 6.4 diesel, I think you must be confused. I haven't heard of any EGR issues pertaining to the 6.7 yet.
