This weekend, while towing up a hill, roughly 65mph and 3000rpm we heard a loud ZZZzzzzz then POP. No power, black smoke billowing. We were forced to limp the truck the next few miles into Saint George Ford where the diesel tech diagnosed us with a hose that had popped off of the turbo. He fixed it in the parking lot for us so we didn't have to unhook. Easy and we were on our way, until this morning.
This morning, no noise, but I lost all power and the truck was idling erratically and puffing black smoke. After flipping into neutral a few times I regained power and was off to work. It seemed to puff a little (probably just clearing it out).
My thinking was that the tech put the hose on while the truck was hot and maybe today, when the truck was cold, the hose was not seated properly due to the expansion/contraction factor? I'm guessing that the original blow was due to overboost? Does that sound correct? And, do I need to worry about todays hiccup? Could something else be wrong?
Recent Maintenance (just in case): I just replaced the fuel filters and changed oil. Replaced alternator a few weeks back and changed out batteries.
(Also, praise to the great diesel tech at Saint George Ford who looked at my truck when he was seriously overbooked just so we could get home
