Guys, last night at about 2:30am I get in my truck to leave work and go home. As I go to leave the lot and head out on the highway, I notice my truck is dead on power almost like being in a 4 cylinder. I had the EDGE Juice with Attitude set on stock for the cold days, "just as a precaution", I look down at the EGT temps and they are extremely low reading 146 degrees. The EGT temp. would spike up to around 500 deg. and then drop back down to the 146-150 mark. I have no check engine light on, no rough idle, no hard starts. What can this be?? I made an appointment with the dealership for tomorrow morning, so please post any info if you can. Oh, at 2:30am when this happened it was 17 degrees outside. Today is in the 20s.
Thanks in advance,:thumbsup:

I brought it to the dealership today and they told me it is one of two things. 1. It could be a quick fix if it is a clogged catalytic converter.
2. It could be one of my turbos crapped out, and would take at least one week to repair due to the body has to be lifted.
I am also so happy to hear that none of the Ford dealerships in which I deal with and no people on the inside of them, would give out a loaner car.. So now I am stuck with no vehicle, guess I will go to Enterprise and see if I can rent a Mustang.. lol:ford:
