Is there any codes, if there are that will need to be repaired first, if they are ECU codes, will it sound like it is missing, will it change sound after it warms up, what kind of fuel are you using, will it start ok, we need to know more,
also have you had the dealer do a DTAC case on this combine.

Dtac has no answers. Combine has no codes. Did some more diagnostics found out what the problem is. As for how we can tell its low on power you can tell when you enguage the seperator and the the hardly has enough power to turn the combine over its not hard to tell you idiot!!! Let you know how it runs after it's fixed...

Here is one on John Deere Bulletin Board, last name is Chuck-----, don't want to give the full name. Only he says there is a code.

Just wondering if anyone else has seen this on any other 9870's when you start him up it smokes blue and grey after it warms up and pilot injection turns off it seems to be just faint then when you enguage the seperator and rev him up it pours out black smoke and is also very sluggish.Also it is getting egr fault codes we replaced the egr valves and tried recalibrating them the values going to the egr seem to always be 0 does this sound right. Any ideas would be appreciated.
