    14l detroit going down the highway uphill turbos goes stop and truck runs rich and blows black smoke I downshift and turbo is back to normal no more black smoke.

    It has done this 5-6 times but only when loaded in the last 2 weeks.

    Any idea what it could be

    What is your boost when pulling the hill? You could have a leak in your air charge cooler system.
