I dont know about the turbo going bad,but i do know that ive seen 7.3 diesel have bad injectors,usually 2 at a time, check for fuel at the injector which can get messy so wear protective gear such as goggles and gloves,while running crack open the fuel line at the injector to see if there is fuel,it should run rough which is good on the working cylinders,if it doesnt change then maybe a bad injector,or not enough fuel pressure at that injector.injection pump issues are another thing,but most likely its an injector.

Truck is very sluggish when going up hills. Seems okay on highway (no hills) though. Any suggestions or common problems with these?


When was it last serviced? How many miles has it done? Does it freewheel OK, no drag? Have you had any work done recently that may be a clue?

that sounds like the fuel return hose on one of your fuel injectors. You should get about 2 ft of hose and replace all of them including the one in back that is capped and the one to the injector pump. Im guessing when this happens there is fuel everywhere?
