truck has no power pulling off from stop

Last week i was sitting at a red light and all of a sudden i had now power when i gave it fuel. I checked the filter that had 3000 miles on it and it was trashed. changed both of them and began draining lots of water and trash out of the main filter housing. Added seafoam and Clear diesel to tank. Any other suggestions. Thanks

Sounds like a stuck open EGR valve. I would take it out and see if a chunk of carbon has it held open.

Well i checked the EGR valve and it was stucked closed. Cleaned it with break cleaner and worked it back and forth until it was closing on its own. Put it back in truck and all problems were solved. truck runs great again. Its only been 12000 miles since I did the replaced the EGR cooler and Oil cooler. I cleaned it then. I guess the bad fuel might of helped it stick shut. Thanks for all your help.
