Please help. Heavy black smoke, NO power

Ok. 2002 e350.

Newer cam sensor, transmission, clean air filters, new oil and full.

Has a 6 position tuner, removed and no better.

Ok.

Was idling in my driveway, sounded great. Walked away and came back and it was running rough with service engine soon light.(cant find my scanner).

It idled rough, like missing cylinders, then, when I'd bring up the rpms, it would kick in and sound great, and engine light would go out. Then I'd drop it back to idle, and it went back to the same conditions. I took it for a ride, and thought it wasn't gonna make one of the hills, literally crested the hill at 2mph, bellowing black smoke.

I removed the dog house and it didnt sound like the turbo was spooling, so i removed it, and it is spinning freely. Also, the exhaust brake is open like it should be. Engine oil is fairly new and full.

Please, we are supposed to be leaving Friday for a trip to Oklahoma, and my bus braking down in devastating.

Thanks,
Len.

New cam sensor, same thing. Dropped it off to ford, 300$ later they say its the idm. So, now 1500$ repair bill. I swear, ill never own another ford diesel. I've had this 3 yrs, 6000 miles, and i don't think 500 of them are trouble free. Always something. HPOP, HPOP oil lines, fuel psi regulator, transmission, idm, cam sensor, fuel filter cover stripped once and couldn't get it off, fuel guage doesn't work, so if it runs out dont expect it to start for a couple days.....

Sounds like it just wasn't taken care of very well in the first place. That can happen with a Ford gas engine. Or Dodge diesel. Or Mazda gas. Point is, not the trucks fault.
