    I know this isnt the mechanics forums...but I figure you guys would know better than most.

    Bobcat 463, Diesel, 1300 hours.

    This morning two things happened. The machine started and ran fine until my guys went to put the trencher on it. Then it would not start back up. I showed up pulled the air filter, checked the fuel, oil levels, poked around a little and go it to start. Lots of smoke coming out of the exhaust. Sluggish throttle, lots of smoke. I let it run at 3/4 for a while to see if it just needed to pass something. So it actually started to run "normal".

    Then I add some hydro fluid, it was very low. Now I can only lift the loader arms up, not down (Very, very slow). And the bobtach will only articulate away from the cab, and not back in?


    HELP! Its been on thing after the other these days....
