The other day I pulled a pickup out of the muck. I had it in high range 4x4. The turbo spooled up like I've never heard and I jerked him out of the mud. I unlocked the hubs and headed out. I didn't really notice anything until I went to pass a truck the other day and it seemed to be lacking power. The boost gauge doesn't climb as it did as usual. Today I again tried to pass and it felt like low power once again. So I did a hammer test and besides the low boost, full throttle made my EGT's jump into the red
. Now I'm thinking stuck turbo but could it be something like a blown hose still partially connected? I'm no mechanic. Plan to have it looked at next Tues.
EDIT- I plan to drive it, any reason not to on flat ground? Been on the road daily and with normal driving the EGT's stay in the green zone.
Thanks for any suggestions.
