Question about 1995 Dodge Ram 3500
1995 dodge 3500 diesel. 80,000 miles on this truck. it has lost power and it seems like the turbo is not working right. someone said it could be the injectors. had to replace exhaust manifold one time,has not been right sense.
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.
