Hey guys, new to the board and have a question. I have a 2004 6.0 diesel that has developed a flutter sound coming from the air box area under excelleration only while towing. I pull a 40' gooseneck probably around 13-14k lbs. and it only seems to do it around 65 mph or so while lugging on a hill or something. Any ideas? :dunno:

are you seeing any boost loss or any power lose when this happens. my 04 had a throttle plate in it that was getting stuck and causing a noise and power loss. took it apart and removed the butterfly out of it and havent had a problem since

Power loss just while it's fluttering. I don't have a boost gauge, so I'm unsure about that. If I get into the gas pedal or let off it goes away and may not happen again for the rest of the trip. Thanks.

Turbo vanes are sticking..tpy problem with the 6.0. warrentee problem..get it in. They get a SCT with Cales tunes which cures 90% of this problem in the future.
I just want to point out that since the truck is an 04 he might be out of warranty due to the start date

could also be egr valve pull it out and see if its all plugged up if it is clean it and make sure its closed all the way install it and then forget to plug the harness into it. it wont throw a cel. if that stops it then next thing to do is do a egr cooler delete. then one less problem to worry about
