What could cause a high load at idle on a Maxxforce DT? Engine load at idle is 75%.

is this on the same truck your are having the accelarator issues with?if it is...try removing the driveshaft for the crank driven pump on the front...and see if that lowers your engine load.this could also be part of your accelerator issue...but im not sure.the maxxforce is very tempermental when it comes to the sensors,and what they read. I had a garbage truck with a front mounted pump with a maxxforce that had accelarator issues because it was always reading an above normal engine load.we moved the pump to a pto mounted unit and it cured the problem.lmk.Im just across the pond from you in clearwater,good luck.john
