Getting a 12 8...

Getting a 12 8 code. Seemed to Have lack of power. Smoke, maybe coolant burning coming out of ac vents, Stop Engine light comes on if a wait a few minutes any try to drive away. Water temp seems to be staying around 200. Some dripping underneath. This is a front end diesel RV isb2 5.9L

Mechanic's Assistant: Sometimes things that you think will be really complicated end up being easy to fix. The Heavy Equipment Mechanic I'm going to connect you with knows all the tricks and shortcuts.

Had turned replaced by Freightliner maybe 12-18 mo's ago. BTW. Code is an ECU code.

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

Turbo replaced that is.

128 is not the fault code. It means engine ECM... You need to scroll to the next page for the code numbers. Please post the codes
