Customer Question

A Actros 2646 needs to be primed every morning for it to start I'm guessing it's throwing the diesel back into the tank , is that caused from a air leak if so where from ?

Hi Adam, My name is***** will be glad to help. Most likely you have a leak between the tank and pump sucking in air. all it takes is a pin hole to lose suction/prime. Check for leaks in the lines and the fuel filter. If ok fuel could be bleeding back through the pump and check valve.
