My 3032e is sluggish to accelerate and pulls down very easy…

Customer Question
My 3032e is sluggish...

My 3032e is sluggish to accelerate and pulls down very easy under very light loads. is this a fuel problem or an exhaust problem?

Mechanic's Assistant: What is the complete model and serial number of your machine?

It is a 2016 3032e john deere utility tractor with 4wd assist. i do not have the serial number in front of me

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

Mechanic's Assistant: Anything else you want the Agriculture Mechanic to know before I connect you?

I am mechanically able to diagnose and repair if i know a direction to start. this issue seemed to start somewhat suddenly while was using it in a field mowing. that is why i am leaning toward fuel issue, maybe a fuel filter?

With a diesel engine, low power should always be fuel problem, and changing the fuel filter is the first thing to do.

usually it would accelerate quickly but yesterday it was very slow to pick up rpms. i was using a brush hog at 2500 rpm and in very minor vegetation and even just pulling the tractor its self it would pull down and loose powerwould the region process cause any issue like this? i think i turned off the region button but not sure
i am going to try to do a park regen when i go back to the farm to work on it.
Mechanic: Curtis B., Technician replied 1 year ago

Change the fuel filter and try it.

i have a filter and i m going to do that but is there anything else i need to check? does the tank have a pickup tube filter?
i did not get a manual with this tractor so i have no diagrams.
Mechanic: Curtis B., Technician replied 1 year ago

No, there are no other filters at the tank.

Ok because I have seen a couple of videos that show a screen in the tank but they were not my model of tractorIs there a rule of thumb on number of hours before changing fuel filters. My dealer says 4-500 hours on oil but I have not inquired about fuel.ok because i have seen a couple of videos that show a screen in the tank but they weren't my model of tractor.

Hi this is Chris. There are 2 known issues that cause this that most people dont know about or over look. The diafram in the fuel prime pump will develop a small hole in it allowing it to suck air also the fuel shut off control could be trying to stick half way i would advise to check those

Customer reply replied 1 year ago
Where would I find the fuel shut off control? Would this be something that is covered under the power train warranty? I still have 2 years.
Mechanic: ChristopherM713, Owner/Operator replied 1 year ago

It is located on the injection pump it should be under warrantry

What is the procedure to check its operation?Is it a simple on/off type of thing or if it has power to it it's good?
Mechanic: ChristopherM713, Owner/Operator replied 1 year ago

it has to have power and you should hear it click when you turn key on and off

Customer reply replied 1 year ago
Okay thank you I will check it as well. The tractor doesn't shut off. It just looses power and is sluggish to accelerate.
Mechanic: ChristopherM713, Owner/Operator replied 1 year ago

if it wont sut off then it could be a power issue to shut off

Customer reply replied 1 year ago
Oh the tractor dies when I turn it off. I meant it doesn't die when using it. Just loses power. I can back off the hydra stat pedal and the rpms will slowly recover
Mechanic: ChristopherM713, Owner/Operator replied 1 year ago
