I pulled out and didnt have much power and then I looked behind me and nothing but white smoke then it cleared and about 5 seconds later died. I was going down hill so I tried drift starting it and nothing. I stopped cranked a few times and nothing. I drained the fuel bowl some and tried it a few more times and it started hitting so I kept cranking and it fired up but wouldnt run very good.I reved it up some and got it to where it was back to normal. I drove home which is about 20 miles and it seemed to do fine. Im not sure if my fuel was jelled some or what the deal was.
Fuel was gelled up. Get some diesel 911 to keep in yer truck. Next time it happens you will drain the fuel bowl, pour diesel 911 into fuel bowl and remainder into fuel tank.
It's important to run some type of anti-gel additive in the cold weather months.
I use the Amsoil Diesel Recovery when mine freezes up. Running a good anti-gel additive will limit this problem though.
