Customer reply replied 5 months ago
its was about 20 but i check the fuel filter and it was not gelled it started idoled for about 10 min and when i was leaving idoled up and then down then shut off. now all it will to is turn over

it may not be gelled in the filter housing, but rather the fuel line which is common when you let it idle when that cold, have you pulled a line at the filter housing and see if fuel is flowing when cranking?

I havent and will tonight do i need to pull it from the lift pump?

no, just open the filter husing, and bump the starter, the fuel relay will come n for 20 seconds, see if it flowing in the filter, if it is not, then the fuel line is gelled and you will need to add some quick heat to the tank,Tim

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.
