    My turbo doesn't come on either. Does anyone have a clue on what it could be other than buying a new turbo.

Have you guys checked your air filters? If it is indeed a bad turbo you can go to and buy a subscription for your vehicle that will give you the procedures to remove the turbo.It cost less than 20.00 and its good for 1 year and well worth the money. I think if you are slightly mechanically inclined you can do it yourself. Good luck and I'm here if you need me. Thanks for using Fix Ya.

No power and blowing black smoke can't here the turbo

Remove the turbo, soak it in diesel, see if turbines start to spin. Normally it's just carbon sticking on the blades or burned out bearing. Let the turbos cool down before shutting off the engine.

Bought 01 dodge, 2yrs ago, has 300,000 miless,

Well, Hate to say this to you but your Cummins 24v turbo diesel does not have glow plugs. The fuel temperature necessary for proper ignition is heated by an element inside your fuel filter housing.

Loss of power

This sounds like a boost leak, the 12 valves are pretty bullet proof.

Make sure that all the hoses are on (not partially slipped off) between the turbo and the engine. There are 4 hoses which gives 8 places for boost leaks. Look closely, they can be tricky to find. This will usually also cause more black smoke when under load.

If you live in the rust belt, take a look at the intercooler, they can corrode through. A boost gauge connected to the intake plenum of the engine make a real good diagnostic tool for this.
