Customer Question
hello, probably 3 months ago...
hello, probably 3 months ago i talk to u about my truck, it could not start, so decide to buy another engine but it start ok but now when u change from 3rd to 4th gear something like that the service light start blanking and power decrease and slow down i have to let go of the gas pedal and start over. even on if you are driving on a hill you feel there is something that keeping the car from going full throttle. for me it is acting like a gasoline car that have bad spark plug. please let me know because the car is outside the country and i can not find someone that can fix. once again , it's start ok but it loss power from 3rd to 4th gear or if u re diving on a hill , service light start flashing automatically it loss power and u have to let go of the gas pedal for a couple minutes and start over until u reach again a certain RPM.

Click this link for the procedure to try for flash codes if no access to a scan tool. Let me know what you get.

Flash codes

Also check for fuel leaks and restrictions and confirm the fuel pressure is in specs as well as no drop in boost pressure or leaks in the intake piping or loss of boost pressure. Let me know.

It start fine , it is only after switching 3rd n 4th or going with a load on a hill , service light start flashing n it loss power so u have to let go of the gas pedal . It is a dump truck by the way . Anything please let me know.
Technician: Daniel Wilson,

The fault codes will be helpful... Could be a loss of VSS ( vehicle speed sensor) signal to the ECM, fuel pressure related, low boost pressure, loss of TPS sensor signal, etc.... There might be a fault code that helps narrow it down to a particular circuit.

Check VSS , TPS, and engine speed sensor signal and try to get the fault codes logged in the ECM memory. Let me know

yeah i don't have access to a scanner in that country to be able to find any code, that is why i was hoping by experience if u never had a situation like that.
Technician: Daniel Wilson,
 replied 2 months ago

Thanks for the update. Yes, but can be multiple possible causes. Without a scanner you can try flash codes counting the check engine light flashes for the two digit fault code which can help identify the problem circuit. Check for air in the suction side of the fuel system or low fuel pressure from a faulty transfer pump or regulator as well as for leaks and restrictions. Also the throttle position sensor and wiring from the throttle pedal, Engine and transmission speed sensors and wiring. Lastly and injector or ECM problem could cause this as well. Check exhaust port temps with a digital temp reader for any cold cylinders indicating poor combustion. Let me know
