erractic diesel generator??


My 2003 Generac diesel generator is acting erractically. I recently had the heat sensor replaced along with cooling system hoses, fan belts, oil filters, etc. Following those repairs, it worked flawlessly for two or three trips, running an hour or two while rolling the through the hot south.

Yesterday, when I started the generator (just for exercise) it stalled after about 5 minutes. It started right back up two more times, stalling each time after only 10 to 15 seconds. I left it alone and tried again today. This time it started right up and ran for 35 minutes before I turned it off.

I have plenty of fuel, I checked oil and water all looks good. The mechanic who did the work a month ago is a fine mechanic and has never done me wrong. It is not stuttering, it just flat turns off!

thanks in advance for any advise!
