I' m glad i'm not the only one. I had this to happen twice. I moved the pump to the frame rail and not had it happen anymore.

Does that have anything to do with the pump being at or below the level of the engine? or is it caused by something else? Thanks!

I think it is a gravity thing, when the bottle and pump are at a higher level than the injectors. Though I'm not sure....I'm by NO means a smart guy, I just get lucky every now and again.

It is a gravity thing Without that solenoid or if it sticks open there is nothing to stop the water from duming straight into the cylinder whenever the truck is parked facing down the slope i have the 8 gallon tank mounted in the bed and the pump mounted on the frame rail under the rear drivers door I just changed my oil the day before there went a quick 70 bucks plus whatever else this is gonna cost I am so so not happy

They just came out with this item. I will try to get ahold of someone to learn more about it, and get it listed on the site.

I called snow and ordered the soleniod it should be here thurs or fri I hope It was 40 bucks He said he had only heard of this happening once before We know that is not the case This seems to happening quite often I wish I did that right from the start It should be here thurs or fri I hope It looks like I will be able to get it going without tearing everything apart Idrained the oil (not pretty about 2 gallons of water) I was told to spin the motor backwards by hand until it locks up then go back and forth this will open up the exhaust valves and push the water out .What do yall think about trying that I guess I will find out when I get home I want to get it all done this weekend headed to the dunes next week I want to test the new turbo and tranny cooler towing my toy hauler
