This air compressor will run for how ever long and then it will just shut down.

Let it sit for a little bit and it will run for how ever long then shut down again.

185 shutdown

Coolant / radiators?


Oil separator?

Does it quit like it’s been shut off, or does it bog down? Possibly injectors.

It shuts down like a bad sensor, I am trying to bypass them now, but not having much luck.
