Expert's Assistant chatimg
Customer: I replaced the lower Trans. cooler line & had to remove the air cleaner box & tube. disconnected MAF sensor. got all back together & now it won"t accelerate. The first test drive there was so much Black Smoke coming out it was impossibly for anyone to see the road behide me. Now it is clear as day, but no Power. Put a meter on it to test for codes, got a p001.
JA: How old is the transmission? Have you checked the fuel filters?
Customer: The truck is a 2006 Silverado 2500HD with 18000 miles org. owner.
JA: What is the model of your '06 Chevy?
Customer: 2500 HD Diesel 6.6
JA: Are you hoping to fix this yourself? What have you tried so far?
Customer: Yes, Checked the MAF for damage & ran my hand all the way down intake to check for objects.
JA: Anything else you think the mechanic should know?

first i would check the charge air cooler pipe down by that trans line. even when clamped back on tight there is usually oil down there so they can pop back off fairly easily, start by making sure all of the charge air lines are still attached.

Ryan, you are a genius. I pulled the inner fender shield back & that is exactly what it was. THANKS A MILLION. Vic Supper of Norfolk, Va. I will definitely use you guys again. I was very skeptical about using an online Tech to figure this out. Glad I gave it a try.

no sweat man glad you got it!
