2008 T180 2500 hours, doesn't have ACS. Everything works

Customer Question

2008 T180 2500 hours, doesn't have ACS. Everything works good when hydraulics are warmed up. When in cool temps less than 40 degrees, you first start unit up lift cylinder works great, but tilt won't work till hydraulics warm up say 4-5 minutes. After warm everything works fine and continues to work fine, just the cold startup period problem. When cold and you try to use tilt system you can fell it pull the pump down, but will only move the ram of the tilt maybe an 1/8" ***** *****, even if you persist. Then in a few moments all is well. No codes flash or appear. Its like the solenoid isn't full moving until hydraulics get warm. Thanks for your help. JIM
JA: Thanks. Can you give me any more details about your issue?
Customer: Warm hydraulics all work fine. When cold hydraulics only lift work fine, after 4-5 minutes every thing cool.

Have you raised the cab and replaced the hydraulic filter yet?
