When it shuts down, what is the pressure?

Does the engine bog down?

Please check the fuel filters and the air inlet filter of the engine, those are the problem most often.

(at high load the engine doesn’t get enough fuel or air).

If those are OK, please report back and we will investigate further.

Best,

Cas

The compressor is shutting down for high temp. When the machine is at idle and not running the oil level on the separator  indicates low some. But while running in high idle the level indicates In the ok position and kinda bounces off of high level. Could this be a problem? Is there a separator filter or screen thanks for your help

Should the level be in the ok position while not running? The machine is sitting level.
