I have a 2000 7.3 with a six speed and I get this whooshing sound going down the road occasonally. I have changed the exhaust gas back pressure sensor and it didn't help. It will also cut the engine to an idle in between gears sometimes. Maybe the problems are linked?

Thanks

Crain, the whooshing sound can be from the turbo and can be perfectly normal. Then again it can be something wrong with the truck. Do you have any modifications done to the truck. A chip, which will cause higher boost levels will make the whooshing sound louder. If you are running a chip with out gauges I suggest you get gauges.
