Good evening and welcome to JustAnswer!!

Sorry for your issues , but if it's loosing power then the very first thing I would need to help is the codes is has active in the ECM.. Do you have a way of checking them and posting them here? Do you know if your DPF is busted or not, if your not sure can you run your finger in the exhaust tip and tell me if it's black or clean.. If clean your good, if it's black then to get it running back right the very first thing that will need to be done is to replace the DPF and reset the REGEN timers. After that you should be in good shape..

Talk soon,

Brad
