A couple days ago on the way home from work, my truck began getting sluggish and then when I pulled up to the house and stopped, the engine was running pretty rough. At this point I did not have any codes.

Before I turned it off, I gave it some throttle and noticed some black smoke. So this made me think it was a boost issue. I checked (by hand & ear) for a leak and could not find anything. I checked the coolant & oil fill for issues, none. I changed the OE fuel filter, no change. I wiggled the wires and plugs on all the injectors, nothing. At this point, I have a little bit of white smoke with maybe a hint of unburned fuel. I gave it some more throttle and then I got the codes P0046 & P0307. I replaced the VGT Solenoid, no change & codes came back.

So, my question is, could my vanes be stuck?

I guess another question would be if the vane position sensor could do this?

1st thing i found when googling P0047:
The P0047 code is a low voltage code on the solenoid control circuit. It more than likely means the wiring is broken somewhere. The turbo has nothing to do with this code.

I hate broken wires. The wire to the solenoid has always had a kinda of a crease in it. It would be nice though to have a broken wire, as far as money is concerned.

Had my balance rates checked...#7 injector is dead in the water...#2 is real close to .0...the other 6 are all about -3.0

Gonna replace the whole set. I knew it was coming, just didn't want to have to do it right now. Gonna go with S&S.
