    skslave - any luck with this problem? I've been having similar issues with my truck. Would love to hear if you've made progress.

    After reading all 3 pages I am still wondering if you have checked all your rubber fuel lines? they may have a crack that opens a bit and lets the pump suck air. It may or may not leak fuel out but should be damp. It coukd also be a crack or rubbed spot on the steel or nylon line. When you work on the truck it can shift position and seal for a bit.

    Jim, try checking for an air getting into the line and causing the injection pump losing pressure. Or you can try running an inline secondary fuel pump

    I have a an SD-33T and have just posted a thread concerning engine hesitation, loss of power, and abnormal black exhaust at high altitude in the Rocky mountains. (9,000+ feet) I had the fuel injectors pop tested and they spray fine and the fuel and air filters have been replaced too. Do you have any insight into this? Do you think I should take this fine wire mesh out and clean it? Is it easy for a less-than-amateur mechanic like me to do?
