Help!! Boost/power problems.

Hey fellas, I am having powerloss while pulling around 8000lb. Trailer, thing is I am only getting around 15-20psi if boost. Not sure what is going on. It will be running fine, on cruise, then all of a sudden fall on its face and won't go passed sixty. And now, my engine light is on??? Also, I have noticed a oil leak under the engine but oil level is still good in truck. Ps. I am on the road in the middle of nowhere between Odessa and San Antonio, no position to for computer, shop, or much else. Just have some sockets. Is this any problem I can do while I mm out here? Should I keep driving like this???

mine was doing that and it was the MAP sensor... it was getting full of carbon/gunk and not reading the pressure properly. Dealer replaced sensor and pigtail and the problem went away, then it came back a while later and I pulled the sensor and cleaned it with carb cleaner and it fixed it...
