Dodge Repair Questions? Ask a Mechanic for Answers ASAP
Welcome, I'm Chris (aka Moose) I prefer to work when others don't, I am here around lunch and after dinner till after midnight.
The first steps we need to do are. Check the air filter and box to see if its aftermarket and or not sealing well. Aftermarket air intake systems will dust a diesel and ruin the engine. Remove the air intake tube from the turbo and use a flashlight to look at the turbo fins. If they are shiny and very smooth then dust has been ingested and the rings and cylinder walls are likely worn. The next step would be a compression test. Can you do these things and report back?
