possible bad "seals" in the turbo, which a $70,00 rebuild will fix it.
Smoking could be bad glow plug/s. Knocking could contribute to bad g.p.'s. Also, the EBPV could be sticking, causing the no power also.
Really bud, just throwing stones right now. Get to your truck and remove the intake assy, and grab ahold of the compressor wheel and try moving it. No side/side - up/down, then turbo is good. Give it a good spin too and check for wear or chips missing in the wheel, too.
