Hi my name is ***** ***** I will be happy to assist with this today.In some cases I may need more info to assist better.I apologize for any delay.\My info is somewhat limited on your model here but I had seen no one else has responded and would like to see if I can help here.If at any time you feel that I cannot help with this please let me know.

This fault here is usually due to a fuel line leaking,fuel filter or filter housing leaking,fuel leak inside the tank due to bro***** *****ne or cracked hose.These are the most common causes I have come across with this fault here before.This wont show up as a fluid leak on the ground since the injection pump sucks in fuel creating a vacuum,instead the pump sucks in air and fuel causing this issue due to the leak.In some cases you can hand pump the primer several times and inspect all lines and fuel components leading back to the tank for any leaks.Even the slightest leak will cause this fault here needing repaired.

If more help is needed, use the reply tab to continue our conversation. If no further assistance is needed, kindly rate my service,your 5 star rating is appreciated.You can rate at any time and we can continue to work on your question as this will not close out your question.Keep in mind in some cases it can be difficult to fully diagnose or help repair your vehicle without seeing it and I work on delivering the best possible answer from what I see to work with.

Thanks Pete
