Hard Start....No power

I have a 1996 F350 Crewcab Powerstroke. I just had the injector o-rings replaced,glow plugs, turbo,and cam position sensor. Truck ran good for about 1 month. The truck lost power while hauling a load of trash on a hill. The truck is hard starting and barely revs up. After running for awhile it will move but then losses all power and cuts off. The RPMS won't increase even with the pedal on the floor. I know I have transmission issues but this seams to be all engine related. I know little about diesels. I was going to buy a remanufactured engine but I figured I would inquire in case it something I can get fixed before going the new engine route.

Nit is right, pulling codes would help.

A possible issue could be low oil level (cut out on a hill). Not saying that's your problem but it's worth checking. These trucks use high pressure engine oil to inject the diesel fuel. So if you don't have enough oil, you won't be injecting much fuel and it will run rough, maybe smoke and have no power at all.

Hope this helps.
