So the other day I was running down the interstate at 70mph pulling the boat. My brand new truck goes into reduced power mode. I pull over and the trucks barely running, and not responding to the pedal when I tried to take back off, like it was out of fuel. Trucks completely stock besides ad 165. Dealer came and got it. went up there the next day and they had it apart, a chunk of metal had found its way into the egr valve and had it wedged open. Just hit 2000mls. Where could it have came from exactly?

If I remember correct, they were having issues with these metal chunks doing this awhile ago. I can't remember wwhere they said they were coming from...rough casting somewhere.

I tried getting the piece out of the valve, but wasn't happening. Hard to tell but to me and him and looks to be a piece of cast slagg, but no clue where it came from. He searched tsbs on it and didn't come up with anything. Has me a Lil nervous about its reliability really.
