Customer Question

I have a Madill 800 with a 5.9 cummins it was loosing power so I changed the fuel filters and now it won't run it starts good but surges for 30 seconds and then suts off. But if I put a hydrolic function on it stays running and smothes out but doesn't throttle up at all any ideas thanks

Thanks for the update Rob, If the engine warning light is staying on it means there are fault codes logged in the ECM. I cant look up information by engine serial number and is why I asked what the model is from the ID tag. I looked it up and should be a QSB5.9 so that what I will go by since you dont have that information. We need to get the fault codes. with the information provided so far we are either looking at a fuel system problem or a hydraulic system pump or component problem if the problem is effected by operating functions.
