I bet there are codes. Only emissions-related codes are required to turn on the SES light. A scan-gauge probably won't see all "manufacturer-specic" codes. You really need something like auto-ingenuity to see everything that's going on.

Yeah, I know there are many layers of codes,but you'd think something that catastrophic would trigger one.

Re: Stuck in Utah with black smoke

What is amazing to me is that many of these issues, the truck just keeps running! ( a good thing)
If you were going up hill and heard a "pop" type of noise at all, I would check the hose connecting turbo to intercooler. If the rubber part pops off under pressure, you loose power and "limp" along, also can cause smoke. It may not set off any codes.

let us know outcome

Re: Stuck in Utah with black smoke

Main diagnosis was #2 injector went bad. After further work to get access to the cylinders ,a compression test was performed and all tested ok. A few days later was informed that the EGR tube and sensor were also damaged. Early last week I was also informed that the catalytic converter had gone bad (most likely due to running unburnt fuel thru it). I picked up the van last Fri and now "it runs like a top" (I hope so after pouring $3700 into it).

Attached is a pic of our smokey van from the morning we dropped it off at St.George Ford. lots of gray exhaust upon starting it off the tow truck...was pouring out black when ascending grades on the hwy the day before.

Thx again for the thoughts and troubleshooting ideas

Re: Stuck in Utah with black smoke

It is possible that stopping (not driving ) when you first noticed the problem may have reduced the damages. Especially the catalytic converter might have been destroyed by driving to the dealership. When I notice an issue w/y 6.0 and I can't identify the cause, I have it towed to the shop. In the Yukon, in Newfoundland, wherever. Towing is cheaper than the some of the things that can be destroyed by continuing to soldier on.

Not like some of the older cars that could be driven as long as they had oil pressure.
