JD 2320: Engine turns but won't start. The last time it did

Customer Question

JD 2320: Engine turns but won't start. The last time it did run there was black smoke coming from the exhaust. Checked battery and even attempted to start it using a jump box, nothing.

Is air cleaner plugged? Remove air filter and see if engine will fire. Is fule clean and not contaminated with gas? Could there have been gas added instead of diesel fuel?

Expert:  Curtis B. replied 9 months ago.

Black smoke indicates no air, or too much fuel.

Check the fuel injection fuel shutoff, if you do not have fuel squirting at the injectors when you loosen high pressure injection line and crank. Any possible way that the fule could have gotten gas in it?
