Early Stages of EGR problem?
Heres the whole story... Its a 2004 F-250 6.0, I bought the truck in January at 98k miles and the day after I bought it the EGR cooler AND the turbo went out on it. The Ford dealership replaced both free of charge.
The truck now has 105k miles on it. This morning I went to work the truck was fine, absolutely no problems. I leave work (truck still fine) and get a half mile up the road and stop at a stop sign, go to take off and the truck is VERY WEAK. I go another half mile up the road and stop to check it out, truck seems to idle fine with no smoking, having this similar issue before I rev it up while looking for white smoke out of the exhaust, which like I figured, thats what it done..alot. I limp it back home which is only about 5 miles, still very little power but not very much smoke. I get home and rev it back up looking for the smoke again but it does not smoke. It is real sluggish hesitating until about 2k RPM and seems to clear up.
First thought was EGR cooler is going out again but after doing some reading I am really unsure what's going on with it????
