Mechanic's Assistant: Have you checked the battery, particularly the terminal connections? Are they corroded?

Are fairly clean but could that cause this

Mechanic's Assistant: Are you fixing your B3500 yourself? What have you tried so far?

No in a certified repair shop

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

Hmmmm, well not sure where you went, but if the check engine light is NOT coming on, then the problem is a fuel delivery issue. Not enough fuel volume and pressure reaching the injection pump. Most common cause of this is a dirty fuel filter. So if it has been a while since it was replaced then start there and have the filter replaced. If it still acts up then have the lift pump in the tank checked for adequate volume and pressure. Be sure the air filter is not clogged also. Most likely a fuel delivery problem though.

What Customers are Saying:

I AM VERY GLAD THAT I TOOK A CHANCE ON YOUR PROBLEM SOLVING SKILLS. I WAS SUCCESSFUL IN REPLACING THE FUEL PUMP. MY TRUCK RUNS LIKE A CLOCK. IT RUNS LIKE THE DAY I BOUGHT IT. NO LUNGING FORWARD, THE TURBO REACTS THE SECOND I STOMP ON THE GAS, AND IT HAS A LOT MORE POWER AND EVEN SOUNDS BETTER TO ME. IT SAVED ABOUT $500.00 BY DOING THE WORK MYSELF. I GIVE YOU ALL THE CREDIT FOR YOUR DIAGNOSING THE PROBLEM, JUST FROM THE SYMPTONS I GAVE YOU OVER THE e MAIL. I WILL USE YOUR WEB SITE AGAIN AND REFER MY FRIENDS. THANKS SO MUCH FOR THE HELP.
