2001 7.3 loss of power at 15 psi
Driving my wife's X this weekend. Drove it up to Payson, AZ, and had issues with loss of power.
The truck drives fine at city speed, and at highway speed. The problem is when accelerating, if the Turbo PSI got to 15, I'd hear a high pitched squeal, experience loss of power, and the PSI would drop to 0. If I let off the pedal, it would recover, but if I stayed on it (like climbing up a mountain on the highway, or trying to pass someone), I would experience loss of power.
On one of the hills my speed dropped to 45 mph even though I had pedal to the metal.
What would cause this, and how do I fix?
... and the PlaytexBaby bottle feeding captcha below is very annoying. Let's get a man's advertisement like for a Chip, rock climbing tours, etc. I now know more about baby spitup and playtex nipples than I would care to know.
