2006 F250 6.0 "Limp Home mode"
First post, yep, a problem brought me to you.
My truck is STOCK. No performance anything on it. 88K miles.
Yesterday, while picking up my new to me toy hauler, & climbing a long grade, my truck went into limp home mode, lost power, etc. When I shut the truck off, it went back to normal node, until I hit the next long hard hill.
Searched the forum, found most references to EGR cooler & oil cooler.
I have a brand new Bulletproof EGR cooler & factory oil cooler with about 300 miles after the install. A local shop that does mostly large trucks & diesels did the work for me. They are not a performance shop.
I was pulling about 6000# at 60MPH, truck was at about 2800-3000RPM, turbo boost climbed until it hit the 3rd hash (30PSI?) on the stock gauge. When it got real close to the hash, it went into limp.
I watched very closely as I climbed the 3rd hill. as long as I kept revs down, boost down, it was fine, then if it hit the marks, it went limp.
Where do I go with this now? I have a trip planned in a week & need to sort this out ASAP.
