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.
