Customer Question

2007 maxi force dt466 the truck had a engine put in it two weeks ago. Ran perfect for 1 week and then just fluttered out. It will idle when you go to give it fuel it farts, coughs, and dies. Some times you can't get it restarted

I have blown out fuel lines I have used a smoke machine to see where it is leaking? Nothing
I am starting to believe that is a bad sensor but their are no codes in the truck.
When you give it throttle the rpm are irrational the iCP is all over the place
it has 50 lbs of pressure on the low side of the fuel filters
Pulled and cleaned the tank to get sediment out of it I can get the truck to run for a hour shut it off and restart itPossible IVS sensor( idle validation)or throttle position pedal new thought

No faults
Expert:  Andy replied 11 months ago.

Triangle is a caution lamp .. It tells us that there is a problem in one of the systems on the truck . When that light comes on , you need to look at the cluster screen to see what it says .... check engine , abs , tranny , etc...

Customer: replied 11 months ago.
It says abs
Expert:  Andy replied 11 months ago.

Ok so the problem is with abs when that caution lamp comes on
