Title: Hiccup climbing hills
Post by: Miller205 on February 08, 2018, 11:56:34 AM
I own a 2012 Jayco Embark on Freightliner M2 chassis with Cummins ISC. I have noticed on some trips thru West Virginia mountains that during long climbs, the engine will hiccup, or chug, and then return to normal. Its as if the engine actually stops running for .25 second, then starts/runs again. Do I need to do a regen, or is this normal?

Thanks, Mike

Miller, sounds like you have a break in wire from your fuel pump solenoid on side
of your CAP fuel pump that will change voltage by movement of wire or shaking.
Troubleshooting fuel pump solenoid interment voltage would recreate your problem.
