Customer Question
I have a John Deere...
I have a John Deere 317 skid steer. It cranks up and runs for about 1-2 seconds and dies. Not giving any codes. I blew out the fuel lines (fuel was run low last time used), primed system but did not help. After priming it tends to runs a little longer. Not sure what to do now. Thanks.

When priming, are you getting fuel from the tank? Check the tank outlet and the line to the first strainer, this is where any debris from tank will collect if there was trash in the tank, when it ran low. with no codes, would seen to be a supply problem and not an electrical problem with the fuel solenoid/Aneroid.

I am getting fuel through the primer. Got air worked out and primer gets harder. I did take the line off from the inline filter and blew into the tank. Reprimed but did not help.
Mechanic: Curtis B., Technician replied 2 years ago

Is the fuel solenoid moving the aneroid to open the fuel to the injectors when key is turned on?

Not sure. How do I know?
Mechanic: Curtis B., Technician replied 2 years ago

It is external on the engine. Locate it and watch it, I sent link showing the part.

I found the aneroid but don't see what would be moving when I turn the key. Is the solenoid internal? I don't see it at all.
Mechanic: Curtis B., Technician replied 2 years ago

Solenoid should be external, and should click open with key. Do you hear any click from engine area? Solenoid is hooked the the throttle linkage to kill engine.

Is there a fuel relay?
Mechanic: Curtis B., Technician replied 2 years ago

Yes, but relay is working if solenoid clicks, Follow click to see if solenoid is moving.

I feel the solenoid clicking when the key is turned. Not sure whether I should remove it to see if it is moving.
Mechanic: Curtis B., Technician replied 2 years ago

Remove it and tie the linkage in the pulled position and see if engine will run
