I'll bet you've got air in the system.How old is your 4000?It may not be self bleeding.

not sure bout the year of it but its not a brand new one. oil is good and fuel is in both bowls. it kinda starts missin a litttle then it just dies no matter what rpm its at. i tried givin it a shot of either to get it to turn over and fire off to get any air out of the system. im stumped on this one any more ideas?

Your most likely going to have to bleed the fuel system to get all the air out. This will take to much ether to do it by having the engine run. eventually you could damage the engine because of the ether.

Loosen one of the fuel rails on the injectors and then prime the system by turing it over or if the engine has one, a prime pump. I had to do this on a generator of mine.
