I have a 2003 6-liter F-250 with 20,000 miles on it. A few months ago while driving uphill, I heard a popping sound from the turbo. It made the sound for about 1/4 mile and stopped. After that, I put gauges in for exhaust temp and boost pressure. A friend said it might be the egr valve, so I took it out and cleaned it. It has run fine since, even when towing a 30 ft trailer, until yesterday. I drove it a mile away, then the whole way home it made popping sounds from the turbo and the boost gauge dropped every time it popped. I'm wondering if it's a problem w/ the turbo or possibly the waste gate, or something else. Any ideas would be greatly appreciated.
