running . the check engine and the engine protect comes on then soon the
engine will shut off .
I suspect your engine management computer has detected something out of whack and continuing to run the engine may ruin it. I would check the oil and coolant levels. See if that diesel's catalytic is overdue to be serviced. The "five minutes idle to shut down" timer might be wrong. Turn on the cruise control and set it while idling. Just guessing. Get dealer to scan for codes. I was lucky to retire before all these computerized trucks hit the road.
I have a2002 Freightliner engineprotect light comes on every now and then but has not shut off yet not sure what it may be is ecm going out have not driven truck far do you have any ideals
That's a $10,000 engine so it may be a good idea to have the dealer scan for codes and look things over. It may be something simple to fix. It's an awful feeling to own/drive a truck you can't trust to get you home without an expensive breakdown and repair.
