2012 340 Cummins. Significant loss of power up any grade? Why?

Mechanic's Assistant: What is the complete model and serial number of your machine?

Where do I find that

Mechanic's Assistant: Are you fixing this yourself? What have you tried so far?

Took it to a Cummins place and they could find nothing wrong. Still have the problem

Mechanic's Assistant: Anything else you want the equipment mechanic to know before I connect you?

That's it.
