I just replaced the EGR cooler two weeks ago. I went camping up around 6,000 feet. Engine light came back on. Now I'm told it's a turbo issue. In the last four years everytime I go in the Sierras (once a year) they have had to replace the EGR valve. Now extended warranty is over. So two weeks ago cost 1500.00 now they want 2,000 for turbo and sensors. Has anyone else had these issues?

#1211 of 1235 Transmission slip or fan clutch?
Aug 03, 2010 (3:37 pm)
Hi to everyone. I have an 05 F250 diesel with auto transmission, 80,000 miles. When I tow up a long grade the trans. will go into a high rev noise. It will also continue to do it on the down hill side until I give it enough throttle to get the trans. to load up again. I'm only towing about 6500 lbs. The tranny temp gauge reads normal. I took it into the dealership and they said that there was "coking" on the turbo and it was throwing the tranny into a slip mode. They cleaned the turbo but it still does the same thing. I took it back again and now they think it is the fan clutch engaging and that it could rob up to 100 horsepower during the engagement. The truck does not lose mph during this situation but I can step on the pedal and the motor revs up as though it is slipping. It could be the fan making all of this noise but has anybody encountered the same situation. One more thing, there are no warning lights coming on during the towing at any time.

04 F250 SD 6.0 has 64000 mi. having engine problems, accelerating on easy take offs it does fine. accelerating with pedal to the floor does fine. accelerating about half way and the rpms start leveling out at 2000 it just starts sutting down ,bluish white smoke starts rolling out the tailpipe. if you let off it clears up then hit it again it takes off. Any advise?
