Hi my name is***** will be glad to try to help.... Is the engine bogging or any black smoke? Replace the fuel filter and verify good fuel supply pressure to the pump, check the turbo condition and the piping for leaks and loss of boost pressure. If this is okay, move onto the hydraulics. Check the return filter for metal/debris indicating a pump or component failure occurring. Let me know
