ULSD & My 6.0 Powerstroke
A couple of months ago my '04 Ford began sputtering and blowing lots of black smoke, occasionally, at light throttle. It appears to happen most frequently at stop lights or off ramps. I was told that it was my EGR Valve sticking. I was instructed to take some side roads and get it real hot to burn off some soot. After doing this it helped for a couple of hours or soo and since returned. Another gear-head i know told me to be sure i am using additives. I usually only use them in the winter, but he said that is not enough with the new ULSD. For the past three months i have been running all kinds of additives in an attempt to find one that stops the problem. To date nothing. I buy my fuel at the same gas station since i bought the truck in '04 it is a BP/Amoco so it would be hard to believe that the fuel is garbage. What are your thoughts? Thanks:thanks:
