2005 F350 6.0 turbo 4x4 dually - When pulling my tow hauler uphill (Donner pass or Tehachapi), I go about 35 to 45 miles an hour because the truck develops power and heat issues. If I drop in behind a big rig and follow them I have no issues. However, If I go any faster, the truck seems to loose power. The RPMs will kick up but the truck seems to NOT have power. The cooling fan will kick on and the temperature gauge rises up to the over heat (red) mark. The temperature will almost immediately drop back to normal when I let off the throttle. It also feels like the transmission is lost and in between gears. The turbo will also whine and whistle. Last year I was told that I needed the Turbo, oil cooler, EGR cooler, fuel pump and fan sensor replaced to take care of this problem. This was all done and the problem still occurs. There was 70k miles on the truck when this happened. The symptoms again are: sensation of transmission slipping, temperature gauge soring to redline, whining and whistling of turbo, cooling fan coming on and then temperature gauge redlines, no power and no real acceleration from a dead start. All this happens and no Check engine light or error codes come up. I have met other owners of this year and size truck and toy hauler same weight as mine that do not have this problem. (So they say). It is also important too know that this problem has occurred twice with no trailer attached and on flat ground. Thanks for any help you can give me.

I was informed that the cause of the engine light on in my truck is the airbag--informed it wouldn't work properly or won't deploy if in a crash, yet it's not covered under any recall. It's never been deployed/activated.
I have power steering when I'm accelerating, but asoons as i let off the accelerator, i have no power steering and the brake pedal goes to the floor. It stops but barely.
I bought A 2008 F350 at a buy here pay here with 190,000 miles on it . It's only been about 10 days I have no warranty so I have to go to my own mechanic but after a few days I started getting this fan noise like a air blower under the driver side of the hood but it's not constant
, it's only if I'm stuck at a red light for too long and start to go again or sitting in park and then I'll go again but it stopped after a few seconds but even if I put the pedal to the floor the truck doesn't go like it should I tell that fan sound goes away. Well this morning I went to the gas station came back out and let my truck on in my temperature was almost in the red and I just had all my fluids checked about five days ago and everything was good. Any thoughts and I'm praying it's something cheap because I don't have a lot of money and my mechanic doesn't have an opening until the 17th
wait a few more minutes let it idle and then it'll go againwhat is wrong with it is it a fuel line and fuel line change filters what
Checked fuses & relays ok
High beam ind works. Oil fuel tack speedo
Temp gauges don't work.
