Help!! 6.0 Is Starving For Power
I recently bought a 2003 F450 4x4 6.0 diesel dump truck for my business, it has around 101k miles on it, it was put in a ditch last winter and had some right front damage but seemed to run ok, now that I have it put together it has 2 issues, the first is that after running and driving for a few miles, it will act like its choking out and loses power. I changed the air filter which looked plugged badly, but it still does it, any ideas?
My second issue is the serpentine belt that runs the P.T.O. will start smoking down by the crank pulley, I just snapped a new belt. I've checked the idler and tensioner pulleys as well as the alignment of the pulleys, nothing seems wrong. I don't seem to have any issues with the main belt that runs the alternator and A/C and stuff, just the one that was added on by the company that installed the dump.
I really appreciate any help!
