Hi, we are short handed during the holidays.

Did you try to reprime the engine with a primer bulb? Are you getting and of the Check lights when it stalls? Was it running well prior to this?

Do you have the Systems Check gauge with the 4 lights?

Customer: replied 11 months ago.
all four lights come on and do the engine check , but as the forth light goes out the engine cuts out , you can restart the engine , but the same result each time . Could Old fuel cause this issue ?
Expert:  Jeff G. replied 11 months ago.

The lights should be illuminated then off before starting the engine.

Old gas is a definite possibility of not running. Have you checked for water in the fuel? Take a sample form the VST, the tank on the side of the motor with the fuel pump and see if you get any water.

Do you have an external fuel filter?

Customer: replied 11 months ago.
have a external water filter , also all four lights are alluminated before engine is cranked , when engine starts and lights go out , when the last light goes out the engine also stops .
Expert:  Jeff G. replied 11 months ago.

Dump the fuel filter and see if you get a lot of water.

The way the gauge works is when the key is turned on all 4 lights light then go out one at a time. This is the EMM in diagnostic mode.

When you turn the key to on, listen at the engine for the fuel pump to turn on. Does the pump turn on then stop?

Customer: replied 11 months ago.
fuel pump runs and then stops when key is turned on , We fitted a new vapour seperator last season
Expert:  Jeff G. replied 11 months ago.

Pump should run with key ON. Do you have access to fuel injection gauges?
