JA: Have you checked the fuel supply? And are all the spark plugs working?
Customer: ITS A DIESEL CUMMINS/ IF I GET TIME I WILL HAVE TO CHECK PRESSURE TO INJECTION PUMP/ I SUSPECT PUMP SOLONOID/SINCE IT ONLY ACTS UP WHEN IT IS COLD/ AS I SAID BEFORE WITH MANUAL ROLLING AND ENGAGEING TRANSMISSION IT STARTS INSTANTLY/
JA: What year is your B3500?
Customer: 2OO4
JA: Are you fixing your B3500 yourself? What have you tried so far?
Customer: WE MAY HAVE TO FIX OURSELVES/ SINCE FINDING A GOOD DIESEL MECH HERE IS ALMOST IMPOSSIBLE
JA: Anything else you want the mechanic to know before I connect you?
Customer: AS I SAID EARLIER IT STARTS EASILY AT 60 DEGREES ON A ROLLING START/ MANUAL TRANS IN THE MORN/ BUT IF A ATTEMPT TO CRANK AT 60 DEGREES IT DOES NOT START EASILY
