You may check first if all the fuel lines are completely filled with fuel (primed). Also check the fuel filters. Low power can also be caused by retarted ignition timing.

Cummins N14 engine hesitation

The FS1212 is normal. The potentiometer/accelerator should be the problem if it hesitates all the time and fuel pressure is normal. I don't remember if you can do live data with the N14, but if you can check the signal from the computer and see if it delays from the pedal command to the fuel demand at the computer. Are the injector plungers set right? If they are too high it could cause low pressure in the injector and hesitation. That's all I have for now.

Can't search for a manual without model, type, serial, etc numbers...

A few things to take a look at:

1) Oil level / pressure sending unit. This is normally bypassed as long as the start switch is pressed. When engine starts, and switch is released, engine will die if sending unit is defective, or you are low on oil.

2) Exhaust temperature sensors. Older units were notorious for burning these up.

3) Cooling Water Temperature sensor. These cause trouble often, but mostly due to water pump impeller being eaten away by galvanic action and not able to pump water as effecively. End result is water temp higher than normal, which trips the switch, which kills the engine.

4) Alternator (generator) output not as it should. If output doesn't rise to proper level within a few seconds of engine start, the engine will be shut down.

5) Choke not working as it should

6) Bad fuel, bad fuel pump, clogged fuel filter.

Perkins 3 cylinder powered pramac generator

Start looking at your safety circuits.

1. High water temp
2. Low Oil
3. Low water etc...

From the manual these are the protection circuits.

• Engine protection: low oil pressure, high engine temperature.
• Genset protection: under/over voltage, overload, battery charger failure, battery voltage out of limits,
under/over frequency, start failure.
• Circuit breaker protection: IV poles.
• Differential protection.

Any one of them will trip the fuel relay closed. What you may be able to do is disconnect one at a time each protection circuit and see when the fuel relay opens. (Make sure to reconnect each one if it had no effect on the fuel solenoid)

Once you isolate which circuit it is in then you can chase wires or change the bad switch.

Thanks for choosing FixYa.

My truck runs great but sometimes it just shuts off and has a rough start up then runs fine doesn't over heat battery hair over 14 new plugs when bought oil pressure hair under 40 First dodge i have ever...

Try replacing your fuel shutoff solenoid. This is an electronic device in the injector pump that is responsible for cutting fuel when you turn the key off. Otherwise, the engine would never shut off. If this malfunctions it can cause issues like what you describe. It can also fail in the opposite position, making it impossible to shut the engine off short of cutting the fuel lines. You may consider calling a local diesel shop and ask them if that is something they have in stock and if you can replace it with simple tools. I have never touched a cummins, but I know they use Bosch pumps and Bosch pumps on VW use these solenoids.

Next thing to check... there are small steel fuel lines connecting each injector to each other. I think those seal with a copper washer gasket. Make sure those are tight and not leaking. If air is introduced into the system it can cause the engine to stall or run rough. Make sure all other fuel lines are in great shape and tighten down all the clamps. Good luck.
