You really need to get the trouble codes pulled and start the diagnosis from there...it could be any number of things.

Thanks Steve. I will be doing that today. Gut feeling is expecting a turbo. If it is a turbo any upgrade recommendations that are cost effective. Thanks again

They're all pretty costly, but a lot of folks seem to like the Garrett GT3788VA

Absolutely

OC Diesel Shop - Home of Bud

Give Bud a call...his reputation and quality are second to none. It's a little bit of a drive down to Mission Viejo but it's totally worth it IMO.

You've got 3 threads going. I replied to one.

But I will add here, you might try unplugging the ICP sensor, and see if she runs normal. If so, it is just a bad sensor. If not, then you really do have low injector oil pressure, and it is probably either a leak or a failed pump.

The ICP sensor is on the passenger side valve cover, near the front of the engine.

Be sure to let us know how this all plays out.

I've never met Bud, hope I never have to, but he is highly regarded by all reports.
