Check your fuel filters too. If you haven't changed them, go ahead and change both. I've seen pressure drops as low as 20psi on the Xtreme with restricted filters.

Otherwise, it could be the low pressure or high pressure oil..or even a sensor. Other symptoms will eventually start showing, if that's the case.

i ordered the air dog system , as far as a sensor i had the truck checked at the dealer for everything , and they said my hpop is running fine and all sensors. i do believe its fuel .... what pressure should i set the air dog @ 55psi???

if it is a sensor which sensor should or could be causing the problem???
