That was a little scary...

Going home from work last night (65 miles in uphill and downhill commute on I-70 in CO) in -30* weather....truck starts bogging and I am registering no boost on my Edge. A few moments later, my CEL comes on. Code P2262, turbo is getting no boost. I get home at 5AM and decide to go to bed and try to sleep without nightmares of needing a new turbo or catalytic converter. Not being successful, I woke up this morning and went out and made sure all connections to the turbo were solid (no problems), made sure MAP sensor was in and tight. No problems anywhere! Take it for a test drive, and the thing runs like a pissed off raped ape. The weather warmed up to 10*, and I cleared the CEL via Edge. No further issues. Is this a problem that may come back, or can I attribute it to a loose connection or something not liking the -30* weather? Thanks!

Super, no excessive smoke that I could see, but it was so cold out that every diesel I saw (semis) including mine had a little smoke coming out of the exhaust.

Yeah at -30 the moisture in the exhaust is going to crystalize the instant it comes out of the exhaust pipe. Looks cool blowin' white like the vapor trail of a high flying jet. Hell on diesel fuel jellin though.

Yeah, I figured that my little scare was probably due to gelled fuel, but I wasn't sure how gelled fuel would affect the turbo's ability to boost. Anyway, tonight is supposed to be -21, so I am not sure how to avoid gelling other than plugging it in and hoping for the best. I already have some cetane booster in the fuel, I added that last night on my way home.

Dave, any suggestions on minimizing the impact other than plugging and cetane booster? Just don't want a repeat episode this evening!

Ha, I know what you mean. My truck was doing that last night! Well, I can't do an oil change before work, so I will just have to hope all goes well. I am going to try and stop worrying too much about the code I popped last night seeing as the truck is running better and the CEL isn't coming back.
