Sediment in fuel bowl with pics! Anyone seen anything like this before?
Truck fuel pump starting leaking from the weep hole so upon removing everything last night to get to the pump, I came across a site I did not want to see. The fuel filter was muddy brown and in the bottom of the bowl was about a 1/8 inch of sediment. I immediately thought it was rust but after closer inspection it has more of a muddy texture but it is not course like sand. I did put a piece of clear tubing on the tank line and sucked some diesel out to see if any contaminants were present and their were and lots of it, some did appear to be rust.
Also after replacing the fuel pump I still cannot get the truck to start. I have done my research and yes everything is plugged in, fuse 22 is not blown, and the bowl is full of diesel every time I look. I did get the truck to fire this morning but it only ran for 30 seconds then died any suggestions would be great I have to get it up and running by Monday for work! Thanks
Edit: I got the truck running. I took everything back apart and pull the new fuel pump again, connected everything back and filled the filter housing full of diesel and it started right up. Weird.
