I have a 2008 dodge 3500 4x4 quadcab dually, 6.7 cummins, 150,000 miles, at 60,000 miles it had the turbo and torque converter replaced and whatever updates.I live in ND and winter has set in, -2 F this morning, I always have fuel filters changed in late fall , burn cenex roadmaster fuel, Do run howes diesel fuel conditioner in enter as well, never have jelled, truck starts at -20 without having block heater plugged in.
My problem tonight was strange, truck was warmed up, me and kids were heading to grandma's got 25 miles out of town and truck started losing power or so I thought, was going up slight hill and had it to floor to get 65 mph out of it, let off and pressed pedal down and could hear motor racing rpm would go up to 3000, mph was still going down, so we pulled over. Shut it off, looked under hood, oil and granny fluid ok, coolant ok, got back in started right up put in drive turned around to head home 2 miles down road alternator
gauge dropped way down, then back up to normal, couple times, then sounded like belt or bearing squealing, check engine light comes on, overhead console display comes on says something like contact dealer immediately, pulled over again, shut it off looked under hood , belt was fine, did smell like some burnt rubber maybe? Got in started right up, drove it home 25 miles at 70 mph, had to acknowledge the console message 4 times.
I assume I will have to take this to the dealer and see what is going on, but seems kinda crazy to me. Any ideas?
