Caterpillar C5000:
Increasing RPMs when hydraulics are engaged

Just purchased a 2008 Cat C5000 forklift
I have see on YouTube some like this raising and lowering the mast
When they do the RPMs go up a little bit
My 2008 C5000 dose not do this
Is there a adjustment for that to raise the RPMs when hydraulics are engaged
Also it has a switch on the dash the reads power and soft. What does that do
Thanks

Thanks for the info and help and yes it is propane
I have checked all that you described and all look good
The only thing I have not checked yet is the vaporizer
Put I have been using it and now I have another problem
It starts quickly when cold put ones it warms up and used for a while and I turn it off for a few minuets it is hard to start again. I will have to crank and crank and then start
Do not know if it is lack of fuel or to much fuel (flooded)
Is it possible for the injector to leak fuel at times like when hot
Thanks for your help
Larry

the engine idle control is internal to the ECM programming and is not adjustable via the diagnostic program.
rpm's are preset in the programming, the ecm monitors the rpm's at idle no load and during a load and compensates under load by monitoring vacuum, air & fuel ,ignition timing, and rpm's and attempts to adjust the rpm's when a load is applied to hold the programmed rpm setting.
If your truck is not idling up when hydraulics are applied or steering is applied then you may want to run an air/fuel mix relearn to start with. You could be having problems with the MAF sensor, the throttle body, or fuel system.
I would try cleaning the vaporizer out by removing the drain plug and letting any built up oil residue drain, also use some carb cleaner and remove the air horn from the top of the throttle body and clean out the intake port. Do not attempt to clean the MAF sensor because the cleaner will damage it, if you suspect the sensor being defective it should be replaced. If this is an LPG truck there is the fuel injector that may be dirty, also there is a filter screen inside the fuel port inside the injector body underneath a small cap (held on by 2 screws) that can be cleaned or replaced.
Also using the diagnostic software you can monitor sensors and components while running to see if any other issues might be causing this problem.
