    on the driverside there is a small tube that come out of the top of what I belive is the manifold can hardly see anything but if you look in the wheel opening between the brake line and the spring tower you can kinda see it. the problem when you excelerate you can hear not a whisle but like a lot of air pushing thru . The truck has plenty of power just not sure what that tube is and is it bad if I let it go . what would a repair on something like that run?

    That would be the EBP sensor tube.(Exhaust Back Pressure) There should be a sensor at the top of the tube and just under the degas bottle. And yes you should fix it. If its leaking, it's an exhaust leak....meaning a boost leak. Boost leaks lead to a check engine light. The EBP sensor works in conjunction with the EGR valve and VGT solenoid for the turbo.

    It looks to be rotten off in the manifold or is it that pipe itself that rots. very hard to see and get your hand on it .

    It's very possible it is rotted off the manifold. The tubes are usually stainless steel. If it is in fact rotted at the manifold, you will need a new exhaust manifold and a new tube.

    I'm finding out that no one around here wants to work on diesels. except for the dealer , I have found one place that does waiting for a price on it and hopefully includes the labor not just parts.

    I have a guy I trust with my truck when I can't fix it... He works for the dealer I work at and does a LOT of side work. He's been doing it for 28 years and he's good! Pm me if you want contact info..

    You certainly should be able to extract it from the manifold. There is a fitting that threads into the manifold and the tube threads onto the fitting. Just break the tube off put a 6 point socket on it and it will come out. Worst case it would require a little heat and a twist socket.
