John Deere 5400 4 WD intermittent starting problem

Mechanic's Assistant: Sometimes things that you think will be really complicated end up being easy to fix. The Heavy Equipment Mechanic I'm going to connect you with knows all the tricks and shortcuts.

Ok sounds good

Mechanic's Assistant: Are you fixing this yourself? What have you tried so far?

Replace fuel filter, loosened fuel intake line leaving injector pump, pumped priming pump, was able to get fuel and tractor started, ran well, shut down would not restart

Hi I'm Wayne.

I'll be assisting you with this issue today.

What you are describing is the fuel is bleeding back to the fuel tank

I suggest installing a one-way check valve at the line from fuel tank

to the primary fuel filter

I hope this helps you

Wayne

My goal is to give you the best experience possible.

I hope that I have earned a 5-star rating

found at the top of the screen before you leave today.
