Hi Im David, sorry about you vehicles problem. Does it seem to die out after about ten minutes each time?

Customer: replied 9 months ago.
no dies out rite away the one time i got it started for 10 mins then i shut it off. i also just changed fuel filter 3 months ago
Customer: replied 9 months ago.
i also checked the pressure valve to see if fuel was getting up to it where the regulator is and i had fuel there
