I got within a mile from my destination and stop engine light came on.the engine derated and I eased it in the yard.someone helped me park my trailer and a kenworth dealer was only about 2 miles away so I bobtail there.when I was going there was no stop engine light on but no power and there was smoke and a little knocking from motor. The truck barley made it into the dealer. DID I DO ANY MAJOR DAMAGE BY DRIVING THE 2 MILES.Kenworth won't be able to look at it for a day or so.

Seems like the turbo failed and thru the fault for the actuator/sector gear binding up or seized so the damage is already done. . It is possible that the exhaust system is also plugged or damaged. You should be fine let the dealer look into it and advise with the proper diagnostic equipment.
