koboma :

# XXXXX is fuel shutoff solenoid, requires battery voltage to open and stay retracted If you have no smoke when cranking, you have no fuel to the cylinders. The shutoff solenoid has to allow the fuel to the injectors.

koboma :

Loosen one of the injector nozzle high pressure lines, and see if you have fuel squirting when crankin, no fuel would would be shutoff problem.

koboma :

Let me know, we can go from here. Thank you.

Customer:

Loosened one injector line. No fuel flow at all

koboma :

Yes, that is what I figured. The solenoid is suspect, be sure it has voltage to it. It should click open as soon as key is turned on.

Fuel shutoff solenoid was the problem. It was not easy to replace. I had my front end loader installed and the working space is cramped if you have large hands. After replacement started quickly and ran rough for a few minutes to purge the air since I had removed one of the fuel lines.


Great job. Much appreciated. Got me out of a bad situation and saved some money. Would have replied earlier but could not because it took a few days to get the part.
