Question Bought Quigley and problems are evident

Whats up gents. I just bought a 2006 Ford e350 Quigley with the 6.0 ps. This is my first diesel. I live in alabama and bought the vehicle from ny( originally a florida vehicle). Van looks great. I flew my dad, who lives in nashville, to ny last week to pick it up and am already having problems. After talking with the dealership they said it sat for about 3 months straight.

Dad picked it up and at About six hundred miles into the trip he stopped for gas and the van would not restart for about 15 min, he had to get jumped off at the pump because he ran the battery down from attempts to crank. After he got home he called me and said that as he was trying to pass freightliners while on an incline the van would fall on its face around 2200 rpm, but in normal cruising it drove great. I have had him put the pedal down a few times to see if it was at any speed and it is about every time it tried to get above 2200-2400 rpm. I asked him to stay in it after the drop in power to see if it would catch up and he said that it will after a few seconds. It has not started 3 times in 5 days of normal driving.

Being a former Marine I called my former comrad and motor t buddy from chattanooge tn that has worked for bean diesel in manchester tn. He seems to think that its injectors. Then he asked me to Idle at temp and floor it to let the turbo spool and then let off quick to see if a violent blow off happens as that could mean the turbo veins? are clogged?

After I had my dad spool the turbo few times he went and drove it to get gas. I asked him to put his foot in it to see if it made a difference he said it seemed to catch up faster and on one occasion it did not lag at all up to 2800 rpm. The one thing he did notice is that after comming to a stop light afterward that it had some white smoke for a few seconds, is that normal? I asked him to keep note of the coolant reservoir, I read on one thread that it might be a sign of a bad egr cooler.

Guys I know this is long but I want to love this van but I need something reliable. Hope someone can help-

Scan it to see what kind of codes you're getting. Then it'll be a lot easier to diagnose.

Where in Alabama are you located at?

Sounds like a turbo, EGR, and HPOP issue. The dealer should take care of it, at no charge.

I'm in foley, just south of mobile.

And unfortunatey it was not a ford dealership. Yea I know, buying sight unseen is ignorant but I let my dream outweigh the gamble. I have been in contact with the dealership i bought it from and feel confident they will cover expences.

My dad is supposed to be driving the van down this weekend for the boat races but I'm worried about putting the van in the wind for another 400 miles, don't want to cause any more damage.

Just a warning -
Get out of the habit of saying and writing "put gas in it" before someone does.

I'd immediately try my favorite "injector cleaner" Seafoam.
