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

You should NEVER run starting fluid through these engines.

First, starting fluid washes the cyclinder walls which leads to low compression on start-up, making the engine dependant.

Second, with the glow plug system, the starting fluid could pre-maturly ignite and severly damage the glow plug system.

Tell him to closly monitor the opperation of his glow plugs and if anything is wrong with it, make the "mechanic" fix it.
