When plowing the trans temp light comes on


I would install an external trans cooler. You figure that plow makes a nice air block for fresh air getting to the cooling pack. You have an AC condenser, probably a power steering cooler, trans cooler, radiator, and if it is a turbo diesel there will be an intercooler for the air to make it thru. If the truck already has a separate trans cooler that is not integrated into the radiator, I would think an electric pusher cooling fan might be the ticket.

2005 GMC Sierra Duramax 6.6 Changed air filter, oil and fuel. 20 mins of driving and lost all power. Code reads only P0299. Not sure what to check first


code p 0299 refers to turbo/supercharger ---low boost=== causes --- mechanical fault
check for all turbo hoses tight , inter cooler not split or has a hole in it

Check that the intercooler is in good condition (no cracks or leaks) and the hoses are tight at the hose clamps . Next talk to a diesel pump repair specialist as you may have to re-tip the injectors and re-calibrate the pump for the extra air that the turbo produces. Check that you have the correct turbo for the diesel

the liklihood isnt hi, most tdci engines are very reliable, as for the intercooler packing up i dont see that happening with normal use, blow by would be the only thing that would really worry you but a car this young wouldnt have issues. i think that you would be happy with the car and if you keep the services up like the previous owner the car will show you no problems :)

My 96 850 Turbo has a issue related to the intake tube directly off the top on the inter-cooler. In colder conditions (0deg or lower) it will collapses the hose (like the engine is trying to in more air...


if you do by pass it i would leave the turbo in operation and just remove the hose of the inter cooler and put a air filter in place of the inter cooler.

Oil coming out of exhaust and whistling turbo


it sounds like your turbo has packed in firstly the oil seal in your turbo has failed thats why ur seeing oil from exhaust & the whistling from turbo is the vanes in turbo breaking up so i would advise not to use car until new turbo is fitted & inter cooler pipes and inter cooler itself are checked & cleaned for swarf from turbo you can check turbo by disconnecting turbo pipe &inspecting turbo vanes (fins) to see if broken up or any damage to chamber.

Engine power loss


Can you hear the turbo spooling up? If yes do you hear an air noise... could a number of things from bad turbo, air to air leaking or its piping, or something simple like a clogged fuel or air filter.
