the fuel heater element inside of the fuel bowl has more than likely come loose and shorting out on the inside, simple unplug it and see if that works.

I unpluged it and replaced the fuse. She fire right up. I also took the filter out and drained the bowl. The element looks rusted and is falling apart. Is it easy to replace? Thanks

I'm not positive but I believe its the whole bowl that you have to replace. The heater is not a necessity. I haven't run mine in two years

I replaced the heat element after breaking the pickup tube off (Left hand thread). She smokes less at cold startup.

Don't break off the pick up tube. 70 bucks at dealer. She doesn't smoke at start up anymore. My thought is it prob hasn't worked for a few years by the look of it. If just unpluging it keeps you from blowing the fuse I would go with that. I did mine because it gets really cold up here in Maine this time of year and it will hopefully help the injectors last a bit longer putting preheated fuel though them.

Any thoughts?

Just changed my element. Picked it up on rockauto.com for about $27. Easy fix.
