Veg in Diesel - vegistroke
Yep, new to this forum, but not new to grease.
Have about 80K miles with veg on my 2002 f250 (7.3), 130K total.
It's been about 5 years since i installed my v2 vegiestroke, and until recently, had no issues with it, but hey, we're all getting older.
Recently I've noticed my diesel fuel guage going up, and while that's normally a good thing....well....you know....not in this scenario.
While running on long trips, i could see the guage moving ever so slowly towards the FULL side of the guage.
after these trips i have hard starts....she grumbles when i turn the key, then is a bit miserable starting.....sometimes white smoke, hard starts, romp romp, etc...
So, I figure I have a check valve going bad, probably. I'm posting to get some advice.
Should i order the two check valves and replace those? Anything else? The hoses look good under the hood...no cracks, rotting, etc...
i was going to go with a new kit, but why fix everything when only a piece is broken.
As always, thanks ahead for any advice you can lend.
