Check the wires on the guage. Replace the guage if the connectors seem fine. Make sure all connections to engine and to guage are not corroded.

I have a 2003 f250 6.0 turbo it starts ruff and on highway when i get to 70mph and hit a hill it will slow down no matter how gas i give and if i floor it black smoke come out


these trucks are known for the egr cooler failing but I think you have turbo issues. maybe the wastegate is stuck open and not making any boost. check your boost guage (normal amount of boost?) make sure your vacume lines and wiring is atached with no leaks. Any check engine light?

The Turbo Charger does not seem to engage .I was led to believe that after around 30 miles per hr. it would be like haveing a passing gear. Oh yes the car is a 1984 Nercedes SD 300 series Desiel.


The turbo charger has more to do with rpms than road speed.The turbo uses exhaust gas leaving the engine to push more fresh air into the engine thus creating higher compression and more horse power.You should feel some boost above 1500 rpms if everything is working properly.If not then you should have the system checked by a dealer or a good diesel shop.Good Luck!

Blows black smoke when running 2600 rpm and boost goes down


I assume its the 6.0L diesel...If so sigh......double sigh.. I had one of these...triple sigh. I need a bit more clarification. How many km on the engine/vehicle. Also, you say that it blows black smoke while running at a constant speed at 2600 rpm, or while you are accelerating to 2600 rpm. Also, when you say the boost goes down, does it decrease by itself, or when the throttle is let off. The boost naturally goes down when the throttle is released (not trying to be a ****, i dont know how much you know). However, if the boost is going down by itself, while the engine is under load (its not supposed to, it should stay constant) it could be a couple of things, which "can" contribute to black smoke. If there is a leak anywhere from the turbo to the intake of the engine, it will cause the engine to get less boost, which means less air into the cylinders, which means black smoke. Check all of the connectors/tubing coming from the turbo to the intercooler, and from the intercooler to the intake manifold and see if there are any problems. The more costly problems which results in boost going down, and black smoke, deals with a problem with the wastegate on the turbo (controls how much boost is produced, and when too much is being made, it will bleed off excess pressure). So if your wastegate is malfunctioning, your boost will go down and you will get black smoke cause the engine is not getting enough air. also, around 160km...80mi, the injectors "can" start to go on the 6.0L diesels....I would check the turbo for leaks, the tubing for leaks, and the intercooler for leaks (a big rock can punch a hole in radiators and intercoolers...intercooler will be in front of the radiator). I hope this helps

My cooling fans and blower have stopped working on '89 Ford probe turbo; all fuses are Ok.


Do you have the twin cooling fan set up?one is for the engine and the other is for the AC.these can be replace through the aftermarket parts stores. The blower for the heat/ac can be replaced. You can also test these units if your unplug them from the harness,and use jumper wires to supply power and ground.

Power loss and black smoke?


I had a similar issue to this after I got in a VERY small fender bender (literally) in an 87 Turbo Supra. In my case, my pasenger fender got pushed in JUST enough to crack a charge pipe and cause a boost leak.

Basically, what was happening was the turbo would spool and build boost, the mass fair flow sensor would read all this air coming in and tell the ECU to dial up the the appropriate amount of fuel. When the air reached the cracks in the charge pipe, it would escape out of them. Thus there was a much lower air-to-fuel ratio, causing less fuel to combust, which lead to power loss and black smoke out of the exhaust.

My guess is either an oxygen sensor, or more likely a boost leak.

Good luck mate.

Overboost condition


Hello, your car is probaly a variale vane turbo fitted and all you need to do is seperate the VNT part of the turbo, give it a good clean with brake/carb cleaner get rid of the sticky oily residue which makes the vanes stick on turbo causing a overboost fault, a delearship might tell you that your car has been remapped at some time setting the boost RPM at like 14 or 1500 and it should be like 2200 I do not know the specifics on your vehicle but a good auto manual will tell you at which RPM your boost should build. I would have a diagnostic done and see if this is your problem, if so do the above and go back and see if it fixed your overboost problem. If not, you will need your ECU remapped. I hope this fixes your problem!

Sunbird turbo kick out


When the fuel system can"t provide any more fuel it will cut off (similar to electronic speed cut) to save itself from leaning out. Its not a good idea to take that hose off as it will boost itself to death, it has no way of controling how much boost is run and it'll be a matter of what goes first, the engine or the turbo.
