Question about Cars & Trucks

Open Question

Have a Kubota GF1800 18HP diesel. I'm mowing & 1/2 hr later it loses power, will run slow for about 1 min & quit. If it sits for 1/2 hr it will start, not heating & the battery checks at 12.7 vts.

I have not replaced the fuel filters, Glow plug light works as expected.

SOURCE: 1985 diesel after sitting overnight will not start

The check valve is a small brass fitting where the return line attaches to the filter head. I believe it takes a 7/16" wrench. There is a 'duck bill' inside that prevents fuel from leaking back to the tank causing air in the system. It should allow flow in only on direction. Some times you can see light through it if it's bad enough. Also, the lines between the injectors can dry out and start to leak air. Air will leak in before fuel leaks out, and you won't see it. There are plastic, cup-shaped connectors for these hoses that press onto the top of each injector. They are sealed by two o-rings on each injector body where it meets the connector. These o-rings can dry out and also leak air and fuel. Your Ford dealer or diesel service professional should have the proper o-rings. Any other o-rings might not seal, as they won't be the exact size. You already changed the fuel solenoid when you replaced the pump. It is inside. There has to be battery cranking voltage to it while cranking, and battery voltage with key in 'on' position. The wire attaches to the top of the pump. This is not likely to be the problem, since it restarts every 2 hours.

SOURCE: 04 f250 diesel cranks but won't start

this is an oil pressure problem, either a sensor is not sensing enough oil pressure, or the high pressure pump is not building enough pressure(possibly leaking or head is leaking). this engine requires 450 psi minimum oil pressure at the injectors to actuate the injectors.

2008 cub cadet rzt 50 run for 20 min than dies while mowing put new pump on, new fuel filter, new air cleaner, new plugs. has a 22hp kawasaki engine. fuel lines clear


When it stalls out did you check the spark? I suspect the engine is losing spark due to an ignition system failure.

Could a weak battery cause Throttle position switch sensor error code - after 1 hr drive engine lite on and gas pedal quits, restart car, repeats about 30 min later


no it will not. if the engine light is on check for codes this will help to know which direction to start diagnosing. a weak battery will usually show up on a no start condition. I am guessing the engine light that comes on is the check engine one.

As it went for a period of time I suspect that the fuel system has a problem. I take it that it is a diesel being a kubota. When diesel sits unused for a period of time gunk grows in the fuel tank. I suspect that this gunk has now blocked the fuel filter or that there is air in the system that has to be bled out. I would also check that the stop solenoid on the fuel pump is working to allow it to start.

Suburban stalls while driving after running for 15-30 minutes. After letting it sit for 5-10 min it runs fine for another 5-10 minutes, then starts doing it all over again.


a bad crank sensor can cause this. shuts off while going down road, and will start about 10 min, later with no problems runs fine until it quits again. hope this helps,

2003 suburban Losing power.....


Do a back pressure check on the cat converter if gas powered. Diesel doesn't have one. If you get 1lb or more psi of back pressure the cat is bad. Also check the fuel pressure with a gauge when this happens.

1998 gmc 4.3 starts up but loses power 3-5 mins later,will restart and run again for another short time,fuel filter has just been replaced.


Install a pressure gauge, start and run 3-5 minutes and watch the pressure. You should see the pressure maintain as it did when first started. If it begins to drop, the fuel pump has gotten weak and is starting to fail.
Let me know what you find.
Regards.
