Power loss on highway

My truck is loosing power intermittently on the highway. When I'm driving at 65 mph (1750rpms) my truck looses power, not all just some (enough the feel) then it will came back by itself about 10 seconds later. No drop in turbo psi ( that I can tell) and no smoke. It's done it a few time at other speeds but mostly only at the speed posted above.

Thanks for any help

Did the new EGR valve fix the problem?

I recently had the same problem. After numerous attempts to diagnose the problem, it turned out to be an electric short caused by the wiring harness rubbing against the frame. On the driver’s side front just behind the tire in the wheel well there is a hole in the frame with a large group of wire running through it. The wiring harness rubbed against the frame and a wire to the egr valve was damaged.

Sorry, It took a little time to get back to you. Here are the best pictures I could get. Showing where to start looking. We used a radiator hose around the wiring to protect it from the frame. Good Luck
