We have a 1995 GMC Top Kick T6000 with a 3116 CAT Engine. We have changed both air filters and it still acts like its starving for fuel or sucking air. Can anyone tell me what may be causing this problem???

Many possibilities........First, most common problems are fuel lines and check valves. Less common is injector seals, but still very possible. First thing is too check fuel pressure and for air bubbles in the fuel return. The pressure should be checked on the secondary filter housing. Start there and get back with your findings.

We are taking it to the shop in the morning to have a professional fix the problem. Thanks for your response though.

'We sold a Turbo in 2 weeks to a guy in Houston! We also sold the first engine we listed - an old Hatz. It took 2 months to sell but that was OK as we couldn't move it locally. We track visitors to our website and we get lots from DieselEngineTrader.com. Your website really works, it's a great service and we'll be using DieselEngineTrader.com for years to come!'
