HELP in Colorado (Frisco / Vail Pass area)

This is Mrs. Denali and as you could probably guess, Denali is in the Rockies. Its a good thing I didn't go with him because he is having major issues. He lost power coming back from Eagle, CO. Does anybody know of ANYONE near this area that is good at figuring out engine issues?? He is in Frisco right now but needs help figuring out the engine issue. PLEASE HELP, I would like him to come home sooner than later!

Please PM me here or reply in the thread and I can give you his cell phone number.

Not really... he said that it would run but it wasn't getting any power. He was towing a 5th wheel trailer with a F450 truck on it, but it should have been able to handle it. Thanks for posting in the local section for me!

Yes, I just talked to him and he said he was pulling a hill and all of a sudden it lost power. You can rev the engine and when you put it in gear it goes maybe a few inches. Also a lot of black smoke out of the exhaust.

Tell him to check his intercooler boots... they are blue if they are still factory... I think he blew one off.
Ask him if there were any sounds like a bomb went off lol...

He pulled the boots and they are all good. He checked the pipes and there are no cracks, they should be good. He checked the turbo and its still tight with no slack. It idles fine, but has no power.

Thanks so much for all you guys help!

I hope I have the right spelling on this... He has a Scan Gage II and it shows -4 lbs of boost at idle and it doesn't move from that when putting it into gear. And no... no check engine light.

What about with out the trailer hooked up?

Man it just seems alot like turbo or intercooler boots.......huh...

Did he check the lower boot on the drivers side?
I dont want to disrespect him, just trying to be SURE the its not it.



Also when its started can he hear an exhaust leak anywhere? Up-pipes or boots?
