I have a 3032E diesel...
I have a 3032E diesel compact tractor. I am looking for a mechanic that can talk me through this problem.
It started shutting itself off about three weeks ag. It runs fine for a half hour or so, then when running, just goes dead. No gradual off, instant. Turn key off, wait 10 seconds, starts up fine, runs for a few minutes, then off again. Does this until it cools down a lot, then runs for awhile, then does it again. Checked fuel filters, oil, fuel pump, replaced the Fuel Shutoff Solenoid, NO LUCK.
I straight-wired the seat safety switch to make sure it wasn't a bad switch, no change.
Does it whether using PTO or not

Model 3Tnv88-BNJTAHOW WOULD I KNOW IF IT IS LOSING POWER? Is there a way to tell? It is running and almost immediately turns off, doesn't seem to be choking out, seems more of an electrical shutoff.
Mechanic: Dan, Technician replied 6 years ago
Thanks for the update Al. Using either a test light or volt meter, check for power to the wire energizing the shutoff solenoid. If power is being dropped off there could be a harness or ignition circuit problem or a potential safety switch problem. Check for any other warnings such as low oil pressure, etc. also if power is being lost, check for power in and out of the ignition switch and your fuses and relays. Try swapping relays with a known good one for test purposes. Let me know

I'm not an engine mechanic. I may be able to work through this. Can we talk after 7 am?
Does this engine have a thermostat that might be faulty? Oil pressure sensor that could be flaky?
Also, what fires the solenoid? Starting the ending? I assume it opens when power applied?
Mechanic: Dan, Technician replied 6 years ago
Good morning, I tried accepting your call request but there is an issue with payment. Please correct this if you would like a call this morning.

Using a test light or volt meter, test for 12 volts at the solenoid with the key on. there should be power there to light the test light or read battery voltage if using a volt meter. Also it should click and yes open to allow the injectors to fire.

Hey Dan, No luck yet. I need more help. We straight wired the solenoid for the fuel shutoff so it is always Open, tractor still shutting off. No change in behavior, so it is not the solenoid.
Mechanic: Dan, Technician replied 6 years ago
Thanks for the update. The tractor is shutting down with the solenoid still powered and engaged then check for a starvation of fuel and restrictions or leaks in the fuel system. If the fuel system checks ok and the engine will start right back up I would look into other internal mechanical problems pulling the engine down under a load. Is this instant like you turned off the key? does it act like something is lugging the engine down under a load? I have heard of internal PTO problems causing this. Let me know

No strain on engine. Just like key shut off.
Mechanic: Dan, Technician replied 6 years ago
But there is still 12V power to energize the shutoff solenoid and it still acts like this?
Ask Your Own Agriculture and Farm Equipment Question
Customer reply replied 6 years ago
I hotwired solenoid straight from battery
Mechanic: Dan, Technician replied 6 years ago
The problem then has to be internal in the injection pump if the solenoid is not kicking out and confirmed it is engaged to the on fuel position when this happens.
Ask Your Own Agriculture and Farm Equipment Question
Customer reply replied 6 years ago
Exactly my feeling. There is no other cutoff through one of the other switches? Can you confirm for me that all cutoffs through switches, safeties, etc all happen by turning fuel off using solenoid? Then we can be done. Thanks
Mechanic: Dan, Technician replied 6 years ago
it is the fuel shutoff solenoid that shuts off the fuel to the injectors and only that. Pleasure to help
