With a moderate trailer truck runs on the L of normal, has no power, and black smokes. It has recent injectors, injector pump, water pump, and t stat. It has over 400k. Used about 2 qts every 1000 miles. Getting hard to hot start, and I'm pretty sure I'm hearing a new knock down low.

I know the knock is probly terminal, but any ideas in the other issues, I would like it to run better, at least untill that rod let's go:mad:

The air filter is clear, I can hear the turbo spooling under load, but I don't have a gauge and cannot confirm boost numbers.
