Exclamation Skoolie Help In Washington State

Skoolie Folks:


There is a new member of this forum who has flown out to pick up a new bus (one just like mine - a New Flyer D45HF coach) who is having problems. He's had the bus running for about 45 minutes and as he was going up an on-ramp to the highway he lost power and now the transmission won't shift into gear. The engine idles just fine. Temps all seem to be in the right ranges.


Any ideas? What questions should I ask him for a rough diagnosis?


Thanks!

I am about 20 min form that location and could show up with tools and some troubleshooting help. I would need to know which exit (number) and what I am looking for.
