Problems with my 96

Im new to this site, maybe someone can help me? I have a 96 dodge cummins with 286k on it. It's been a wonderful truck with minimal problems. Seems the turbo has stopped working or its starving for fuel? It always starts up just fine but, rev engine to anything over 2000 rpm, it starts choking missing and really smokes out exaust. When I'm driving it I must really feather the pedal or it just chokes. As long as I stay around 1800 rpm there is no problem but, when I start up a hill doing 65 mph it just wont go. Anyone have any suggestions? I thought it might be the lift pump? Thanks very much, Charlie..

start by checking your air filter. do yourself a favor and read all the sticky posts and then do a search. good luck to you. let us know what you find.

Sounds like low fuel pressure> http://www.cumminsforum.com/forum/94...-12-valve.html

If you've never replaced the overflow valve do so> http://www.fostertruck.com/Overflow_valve.htm
