Re: International 4400 power loss.
Check the charge air cooler and hoses/clamps. If the computer does not see the correct amount of air in the system then it will not allow the injectors to openup and raise the rpm's of the engine. The ones here in town are non electronic and there have been several CAC's leaking. Build a plug for 1 end of the cooler. Make a plug for the other side and slowly apply 30 psi air presure to the CAC. Wait 15 to 20 seconds then shut off the valve to the main air supply. If it drops more than 5 psi in 10 to 12 seconds then you have a leak. Spray all the clamps and hoses with a solution of soap and water to find the leak. No codes will show since there is really nothing wrong as the computer see's it. You are just trying to do something and the computer checkes all systems. It see's a problem and reacts to it as it see's fit. Hope this helps.
Hint: I made my plugs to fit the hose connection at the farthest away connection. This allows me to check ALL the hoses and clamps. They make a plug kit to check the CAC but it checks ONLY the CAC. It does not check the hoses and clamps. They are almost more likely to leak/break as the cooler. Just my 0.02

It is said if you sit by the river and watch the water flow by long enough, your enemies will pass by. This I believe to be true. It is also possible to watch your loved ones pass by as well.
