Really? Yall are diesel specialist?
I have a customer that I do all of his tractor and skid steer repairs on. Hs calls and says his 01 F350 quit about 1/2 mile from his house this morning and that has had the "diesel repair shop" out there working on it for about 3 hrs. He says that they have figured out that it is bubbling air into the fuel bowl. Said the guy there has run quite a bit of either through it and does not know what is wrong. Said it needed to be towed to their shop and have the fuel pressures checked. I went by and looked at the truck and in about 2 mins after sliding under the truck I find that the fuel suction line and the wiring had been ripped out of the truck. Apparently a dog was trying to get to a couple wild cats that were hiding on top of the fuel tank. 1 Hour repair and he was on the road again. I told him to not let his mechanic run that much either trhough his engine.It was NOT a happy engine when it started. JJ
