Question about Cars & Trucks
I have a 2006 Farmtrac DTC 30 with a 30 hp Mitsubishi diesel. The problem win bad fuel containing water and algae. The fuel tank has been drained,fuel line replaced,injectors rebuilt, tractor tuned on a dyno, new fuel treated for algae, fuel filter replaced. The tractor will run for 1 hr and then loses power and shuts down. In order to restart, the injectors have to be bled. I am looking for ideas as to what to try next. Ted

92 and 97 have completely different injection syatems. I agree with the air getting into system on the 92. the fuel pump has a check valve in it' the valve may be bad allowing fuel to drain from the fuel filter housing, Could even be a pin hole in a line between fuel tank and injection pump, follow lines back to tank, see if you see any moisture on either the feed or return line, these have a history of rusting, may be a pinhole onder the rust> Let me know if this helps

Ethanol really causes problems in cars that sit around.Thanks for us going green huh?It decomposes non-metal parts in the gas system.If the car sits around for something like 6 weeks the gas does go bad.You have to siphon the tank as much as possible.When filling up,add octane boost first then gas.It still may not work though.I did all that for a scooter and it still didn't work.So if you try it,when you add gas,probably only use 4 or 5 gallons,so you don't waste too much money if it doesn't work,and it is enough to mix the octane boost fairly well.Good luck bro'!That's all i have for now.And gas is gas no matter where you buy it.All those additives the companies claim clean this or that is just sales.Since fuel injection came out,companies are required to add a certain amount of detergent to keep injectors clean anyways.And 93 octane is not better than 87 octane enough to pay 20 cents more per gallon.

take the shut off valve out of the injector pump and inside the valve is a round metal body with a rubber seal on the end ,check this seal hasnt swollen and stuck ,also check inside the primary fuel filter for any transparant pieces or crystal ,this is a problem i have been getting of late with people putting this bio fuel into the tank ,it causes this crystal stuff and it damages the injector pump as it passes through the filters and solidifies in the injector pump and kills them.just though before you start pulling it apart crack off a couple of injector pipes and get assistant to crank engine throttle wide open and see if its pumping fuel first this will give you some idea what to look for ,leave this answer in your e mail box so you can get back to me later after having a look ,but please remember the time zone difference
