Exclamation Wtf this issue is like a ghost!!!!

I don't know what gives. Iam chasing a ghost here. Month ago my f350sd 7.3 diesel was hauling my 18 ft holiday trailer wen it happend 1st. Total loss of power sputtering and just barley chugging along .... Figures the turbo crapped out next day fine runs along for 2 weeks no prob then bam hits my truck again no load. But on uphill thru mountains 7 hours of pissing around with no cell service. All of sudden good too go. Got home. Now it's more often then not like 4-6 times daily then. Day or two without nothing. And just stops. Things I've done and replaced are new air filter standyrne fuel treatment juiced up. Discoverd loose uvc harnes plug. Icp sensor does have oil in it cleaned it yet too replace it tommorw .... Oil is in check and good so not my hpop turbo is running fine no oil leaks all shafts are a ok ..... Now why it's a ghost .... Pulling no codes not even a check engine light comes on at all and no she's working fine Icp sensor unpluged pulls that on .... The truck sat for 2 years in heated shop full tank of fuel ran weekly to keep seals fresh shit in my tank maybe its plastic tank so it would be fungus or biocide build finally falling of my tank walls plugging my screens inside. Cos I boot the tank it temp fix oh it only does this when iam operating temp normal 180f. Mmmm crapping out high pressure fuel pump ....? Thoughts on this before I tackle this tank drop tommorw would be helpful

Had the same issue when I had my 350. Replacing the tube that goes from exhaust manifold to egr sensor fixed mine. If you have a look from underneath you should ne able to see the tube and feel it for corosion. Its on the passengerside manifold.
