stop failure
by: Doug in s.d.ca

Well, there's two main ways to stop a diesel, cut off the fuel or the air. Emergency stop (at least in North America) cuts off the air intake so it can't run on environmental fumes.

So, it's getting air when it shouldn't, and probably the Unack is telling you there is some fault with the engine air control device.

BTW, this a XAHS 237? or really 273?

Good luck.
