You should check your exhaust for a clog of some kind such as a collapsed catalytic converter,Muffler or bent pipe or even something put in the tail pipe. also air filter car will start and run with clogged air or exhaust at idle but will starve out when idled up at all
Multiple possible problems, low freon, imprope install of serpentine belt, or more likely suction hose collapse due to faulty part design. If freon low pressure between 45~55 pounds pressure and serpentine belt properly routed around idler pully between compressor and alternator, then suspect suction line collapse which literally starves the compressor at idle and constricts the compressor at all speeds.
Most probably your hose is the problem, does the exhaust smoke more than usual ?
If it does then the collapsing hose is reducing the air volume that your engine needs. Your turbo is trying to drag air from the intercooler rad the hose collapses, reduced power.
If you can't get a new one before Christmas try taking off the hose and pushing a hard plastic pipe inside it, if there are bends in the pipe cut the plastic pipe into halves and feed it in. may help. But you really need air into the engine.
I'm looking at a picture which I don't have any way to send to you so I'll describe as best I can. Standing in front of the truck, the injector pump is just to the right of a rad hose. I can se what appears to be throttle cable and linkage on the left side of the pump and a fuel line going into the center of the pump. On the immeciate right side of that fuel line are 2 electrical fittings mounted front to back. The front one, which seems to have 2 wires in this photo, is the fuel shut-off solenoid. There is nothing to tell me what the back one is and there is nothing to tell me what the electrical plug-in on the front of the pump to the left of the fuel line is either.
Failing this simply pinch of the fuel return line. This will stop the engine. Hope this helps.
Sounds like you either broke (small crack) or may be smashed/crimped a fuel line. White smoke in diesels means that there is not enough fuel or that there is air getting in the line some how. Don't confuse white smoke with a blown gasket, this would smoke all the time
Firstly, check the air filter and its piping, that there is not any restrictions. secondly, check, with the engine running, to see if any of the air intake hose are collapsing in on themselves, this would indicate a bad hose thats breaking inside and so , collapsing.
Hope this helps
If you are saying when you remove the air duct hose from the front of the car to the top of the engine, then look for a plugged air duct or filter that is starving the engine of air when all is assembled properly.
the only permanent solution to your problem is to replace ALL the O-rings on the injection pump fuel lines. Don't forget the one behind the fuel cut-off valve as well..
This is the only soltion that really worked for me.
