Truck starts up just fine, and runs well for a while, then sometimes starts to lose power, then gets sluggish and runs really rough. This seems to happen most of the time whenever I'm going along about 70 or so, then whenever I gradually accelerate, and start to spool up some, it develops a miss, and will run choppy, while losing a LOT of power.
I'm learing about the diesels and don't know that much about them right now, but it almost seems to have a small squeak, maybe from the serpentine belt? Do the 7.3's have serpentines than run everything? Sometimes the power steering seems to be sluggish around tight turns in parking lots, etc. Sorry for the long wind but just trying to explain what's happening.
