Anyone near Pittsburgh, PA?

Having some issues with 04 6.0 and could use some guidance and hopefully some scanners so I can find out my problems without paying buttloads to the dealer. Truck is drivable and I can bring it to you.

Sure. I am working in the Strip district if you want to swing by. I have my SCT in my office if that is the kind of code you need to find?

I am in Ambridge, not too far from you if I can meet you there on a weekend day or if you want to come to my place because i do not know what or how serious my issues are and really don't want to pay a tow bill either for this monster. I'll be willing to pay you if need be for your time. I just did a EGR delete and I'm not a mechanic but I gave it my best shot. I'm still blowing what I think is a lot of white smoke and I feel as if I lost some power, so, I don't know what is wrong. Might be a FICM or injector from what I have been reading, but I don't know.

With EGR delete I am assuming you have an EGR cooler delete? If so, smell the smoke, is it deisel or coolant. If you need head gaskets I can refer you to someone local here.

I think I found the culprit accually. Oil in the exhaust. Probably the turbo seal. I have not driven it is about 5-6 months cuz of starting issues in winter (which is why I want to scan it for injectors and ficm and such) but i'm hoping that the seal will swell since I'm driving it again. >>>>> Sinner6, how much $ to bring it to your shop?

I dont know if it needs a turbo or not. I hope the seal swells now that Im driving it again (has not ran for 6 months) but the turbo works fne except I think I have a boost leak (cuz of my egr delete and my non mechanical skills)
and the seal leaking more worrired about the boost leak right now (i think) and scanning for codes
