Customer Question

I am looking at a 2005 Mitsubishi FE 180 diesel 4.5L with 198k on it. The sell says it had not run for 3 months and didn't add antigel to diesel. Today it's -4 degrees and I added e-911 fuel help to eliminate gelling. Cranked truck and ran BUT only for 15 seconds then dies. Recranked and ran for 15 seconds like 30 times. But still can't get it to run for any longer. Any ideas thanks Daniel.

Hi I'm Wayne

I will help you with this

1st you need to replace the fuel filters , and add some 911 to

the filter with clean fresh fuel, about 2 oz

in the tank if it is gelled , may need to warm the tank

use 3 bottles into the tank -4 is cold for fuel

may have to drop the filters several times to

refill them

I hope this helped you
