2000 ford f250 with serious under power problems? Help please.

I was pulling my trailer with my 2000 F250 down the interstate when all of a sudden loss of power from the engine. I was driving 65 mph when the loss came on I dropped to 45 mph. I could shift normal and all gauges read fine. The engine light did not come on and I could see no smoke. Sits and idles fine and I could see no leaks from anywhere. I know nevada has crappy diesel and my fuel filter has been over due for a change by 15k miles. Do you think this is the problem or is it the turbo? When I also gave it throttle when at an idle it sounded like it was missing. Truck starts fine just have no juice behind the throttle. Do you think it can be injectors?

Thanks

It could be a Ton of things, you would need to get it on a good scanner to narrow it down.

BUT, without a CEL, coupled with the fuel filter being in question, That's where I'd start!

As for the turbo, the IC boots would be a good place to look carefully for evidence of a loss of boost pressure. Make sure none of them has "slipped" maybe...

Thanks for the advice. I decided to go to the easiest thing to replace and that was the fuel filter. I guess when your mom tries to fill the truck at a gas station and leaves the cap off the tank in that Nevada desert it can turn a fuel filter bad quick. So that was a lesson learned. So to all those who read this change your fuel filters every 10 to 12K and you wont have this problem.
