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.
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.
