Customer Question

I have a 2002 itasca class A with 8.1 liter and it started after I fueled up and to a break at a rest stop, engine did not want to start, did get it started using about half throttle while cranking, thought maybe it was a bad tank of gas, so used 3 bottles of heet, problem still exists

Hi I'm Wayne

Customer: replied 1 year ago.
gas, it will start using the throttle while cranking, but idles erratic, and there is no loss of power when climbing hills or grades, powers down the road just fine

Hi

Thank you for that

what you are describing is a crankshaft sensor

this is all the symptoms of it ,

I suggest when you get a chance , have a repair shop replace it

before you are stranded on the road

I hope this helped you
