2005 Turbo PFFFFT..

While climbing out of a pretty steep grade pulling my RV today, while seeming to struggle pretty hard, my 2005 F-250 with 91,000 miles made a loud PPFFFTTT! sound, kinda like highly compressed air blowing out very quickly. The power went to almost zero, and the turbo gauge went to 0. I'm pretty new to diesels and would appreciate any feedback, Thanks, Robert....

Thanks, indeed it was a CAC tube blown due to sticking vanes on the turbo. The sticking vanes over pressured the tubes. It cost me $1400, but I'm glad it wasn't more.
