Welcome, I'm Chris (aka Moose), my normal schedule online is around lunch and after dinner till early morning.

Is that P0087, P0540, and P2155 for the codes?

Customer: replied 6 months ago.
I only start getting them after I'm down to about a half a tank of diesel
And it only seems to happen when I have a load like if I have my truck camper on our I'm towing a vehicle

Is the fuel filter good?

Can you do these tests to check the injectors.

See if there is a concern causing the glow plugs not to work.

Let me know these results.

Hello again Chris here,

  1. I have to assume you were not pleased with my help, because you have not replied or rated the post.
  2. What would you like to do regarding your question now?
  3. Do you still need help? Please reply I want you to get equal to or more than what you paid for.
  4. This post is coming up on the 7 day mark where it times out. That can prevent me from being able to post answers to your replies.

Thanks Chris
