I have a 2006 2500hd duramax my check engine light is on.
P0087 is the code its throwing

When I accelerate real fast "racing" my engine drops down to 4cyl mode. It has to do with fuel not getting thru but thats all I know.
I love my truck, so I only want someone who truly k.ows about chevy diesels.
I have guns, ammo, or cash to barter with.
I also can get any parts I need at whole sale pricing.

I am not a chevy guy, and not a mechanic but I do dabble in performance on my Dodge diesel, so you can take this for what it is worth.
P0087 is a Low fuel rail pressure code.
Low fuel Rail pressure can be caused by a lot of things. Dirty filter, dirty fuel pickup, collapsed fuel lines, bad lift pump (Does LBZ have an external pump?), bad injection pump, fuel injector issues.
Do some google searches, that code while meaning one thing can be caused by many things. I HATE THOSE!!!

Tell me about it bud, theres like 20 different things it could be. Youd think as modern as these trucks are that the code would say exactly whats going on.
