307 diesel air pipe collapses when engine runs

The very large hose runing front to back in the engine, collapses when the engine runs and starves the engine of air. it then cuts out,

it seems to run from the side of the radiator to the inlet ahead of the bend at the back of the enhibe ready to follow through to the air filter..

Any help ??

It sounds like the initial intake hose on a 90 bhp HDi engine, in which case you need to follow it and check for blockages, including inside the air box after removal of the air filter.

Air conditioner blowing cold when driving, but blowing hot air when not driving

Multiple possible problems, low freon, imprope install of serpentine belt, or more likely suction hose collapse due to faulty part design. If freon low pressure between 45~55 pounds pressure and serpentine belt properly routed around idler pully between compressor and alternator, then suspect suction line collapse which literally starves the compressor at idle and constricts the compressor at all speeds.

The fix, is to toss your existing suction hose and buy one of these custom modified hoses:

Turbo / Intercooler Hose collapses

Most probably your hose is the problem, does the exhaust smoke more than usual ?
If it does then the collapsing hose is reducing the air volume that your engine needs. Your turbo is trying to drag air from the intercooler rad the hose collapses, reduced power.
If you can't get a new one before Christmas try taking off the hose and pushing a hard plastic pipe inside it, if there are bends in the pipe cut the plastic pipe into halves and feed it in. may help. But you really need air into the engine.

How do i shut off my 1990 f350 diesel truck when my ign is broken where is the fuel cut off switch. I can't shut my truck off. please help

I'm looking at a picture which I don't have any way to send to you so I'll describe as best I can. Standing in front of the truck, the injector pump is just to the right of a rad hose. I can se what appears to be throttle cable and linkage on the left side of the pump and a fuel line going into the center of the pump. On the immeciate right side of that fuel line are 2 electrical fittings mounted front to back. The front one, which seems to have 2 wires in this photo, is the fuel shut-off solenoid. There is nothing to tell me what the back one is and there is nothing to tell me what the electrical plug-in on the front of the pump to the left of the fuel line is either.
Failing this simply pinch of the fuel return line. This will stop the engine. Hope this helps.

Its a 2004 2500 4x4 6 speed 5.9 cummins. got the front end hunh up in a deep mud hole. it has very little power now and has a wineing noise the more gas you give it. dont wine when idling. when you give it...

Sounds like you either broke (small crack) or may be smashed/crimped a fuel line. White smoke in diesels means that there is not enough fuel or that there is air getting in the line some how. Don't confuse white smoke with a blown gasket, this would smoke all the time

Over the last couple of days there seems to have developed an issue with the engine. It seems to be down on power and will not freely rev over 2750rpm. When you put your foot down it takes forever to build...

Firstly, check the air filter and its piping, that there is not any restrictions. secondly, check, with the engine running, to see if any of the air intake hose are collapsing in on themselves, this would indicate a bad hose thats breaking inside and so , collapsing.
Hope this helps

Car dont want to idle it does wen i remove breather pipe

If you are saying when you remove the air duct hose from the front of the car to the top of the engine, then look for a plugged air duct or filter that is starving the engine of air when all is assembled properly.

I have a 307 d-turbo, when i switch the engine on and accelerate the main air feed pipe runnig accross the front of the engine collapses, starving the engine of air

Could just be a soft / collapsed hose but check the air filter and intake for blockage or just a really dirty air filter. It the engine struggles to draw air it will collapse hoses.
