Sir, my Fuso super great 10m20 engine was low power during a couple of time travel then after ten to fifteen minutes of rest it will run again in normal.

I already replaced fuel filter including the feed pump on injection pump. Also clean the air filter, unfortunately the issue was the same. In my observation low power was occur during the engine rise of engine temperature. Any suggestion would be appreciated.

Do you
have the same problem?

Have you/can you check the valve clearances and do a compression test?

Any suggestion to all mechanics! There is no problem in the compression of engine. My trucks was fitted with electronic fuel injection pump zexel tics! Low power was happen during loaded specialy during going up hill but when the engine rest about 10 to 15mins it will back to normal then after 2hours the problem was occur again.

The problem may well be in the injection and metering of the injectors, are they original injectors and have they been calibrated to the mod pump? Are you seeing black or white smoke during low power high load? Just trying to eliminate a few things here, remember that we are working blind.
