  5. !?!? What happened!

    Yes I ran the truck without the air cleaner pipe and it did spin by itself. But the manifold was smoking.
  6. !?!? What happened!

    I took the air cleaner hose off turbo and checked if blades were spinning and they were.
  7. !?!? What happened!

    When it is started and I Rev it a little smoke is coming out of my exhaust manifold. Not sure if that helps but every mechanic I've spoken to isn't available unt8l next week
  8. !?!? What happened!

    Oh sorry it's a mechanical em7 300
  9. !?!? What happened!

    When I say idle normal grey smoke was pouring out but she wasnt about to stall
  10. !?!? What happened!

    It keeps saying upload failed for my pics. So I started it up and it actually was idling normal but when I would.hit the gas black smoke would pour out and the pipe going into exhaust manifold would smoke
  11. !?!? What happened!

    BC thank you for looking out, again I apologize I'm not that mechanically sound when it comes to diesel. I've tried uploading images and it keeps giving me an error message. Let me fill you in as to where I'm at with my "diagnosis" lol Took hoses off going to turbo So i can spin the fan by hand and it spins freely so from what b I've been told the turbo isn't broken. I removed my fuel filters and it seemed as if my secondary had some water and my primary was half way full with fuel???! Not sure why but I am filling them up as we speak and will put them on and check
  12. !?!? What happened!

    I know I shouldn't do that but in certain situations I have to to avo8d stalling on a hill coming from a r3d light. Just tried starting again she had a little trouble cranking. Got her started a d it would Rev then drop Rev then drop etc. While blowing grey smoke
  13. !?!? What happened!

    I apologize I'm new to diesel engines. Leading up to this I've had trouble with this truck pulling. Loaded down I'd have to kind of work the clutch from a dead stop pulling a grade t9 avoid it from stalling. I have a sister truck it's a 94 same motor and all and it's a completely different animal. She pulls stronger and gets ip to spend a lot faster.
  14. Help. 95 and 94 mack dm

    When started it idles terrible and when I give it Amy throttle it wants to stall. Silly question but it possible that the air cleaner is doing this?
