Heater lights but burns 5 or 10 seconds then goes out sounds like fuel to me.I burn Diesel fuel in it

Maybe there is a sensor that determines if the fuel is burning. If that sensor fails, the fuel may shut off after a few seconds if that sensor fails to detect the heat properly. Some kind of safety device to prevent fuel dumping if it stops burning, perhaps.

Have inadvertently put diesel in the fuel tank, can it be saved?

You should be able to just drain out the tank, fuel lines and carburetor. Once you do this put in fresh correct fuel and start your engine. It will smoke a short time as the remaining diesel fuel is burn off then it should clear up if you had ran it with the diesel in the fuel before cleaning.

How do u convert from kerosene to diesel

there may be possible ways out there to do the conversion but it may put you and your loved ones in jeopardy. kerosene and diesel fuel have different thermal characteristic during the burning process so the heater designed to run on kerosene may not be capable of handling the burning characteristics of diesel fuel.This may lead to unwanted fire incidents and loss of lives. Best is to purchase heater made for diesel fuel.

Twin turbo 80 horse power deutz Diesel engine blows black smoke under load

Diesel engines smoke when under a heavy load. Unlike a gas engines, a diesel engine uses fuel that is more like an oil.Smoking is a good indication the fuel is not completly burning because of loaded engine spee. White smoke indicates the fuel is not ignitingefficiently. Truck, boats, tanks abd anything else using diesel fuel will smoke when it gets more fuel than it can use.. Easing up on the throttle will lessen the smoke but not eliminate.. Of coarse if the demand is lessened by applying less loadyhe fuel consumption drops.Not to worry as long as the smoke doesn't attract the EPA.

Does a toyota hilux surf 1995 diesel have spark plugs and points as in the days of yore??

Diesel engines don't have spark plugs. They use compression and heat to fire the diesel. Most diesel engines have glow plugs which are designed to preheat the combustion chamber to help burn the diesel fuel when you start it up. Hope this helps.

Had about 4 gal of diesel in tank and someone put 5 galons of gas in tank. Drove a mile and stopped for not sure how long. Went back out to start and would not start.

it all depends on how much diesel remained in the tank before the gasoline was added, and how new and sophisticated the diesel engine is. In a 2007 or newer clean diesel engine, any amount of gasoline will probably damage the sensitive emissions control components (DPF, OxyCat and SCR) and system. In older engines with much less sophisticated and "touchy" emissions systems, a lightly diluted (say 90 percent diesel/10 percent gasoline) mix would probably pass through with little or no detriment. It might simply cause reduced engine power, perhaps a bit more noise, and possibly a sharp warning from the emissions sensors that detect something other than pure diesel exhaust. It's high concentrations of gasoline that spell real trouble. Whether a modern clean CRD diesel or an old indirect injection unit, burning straight gasoline or highly diluted diesel fuel will almost certainly result in catastrophic damage to the mighty diesel engine.

I recently put in 1 gallon of diesel fuel in my car when it was almost empty and then later had an accident and car . slid in ditch but no impact. Yesterday it started after putting alittle gas in but...

Let me understand; put diesel fuel in a car designed for gasoline? If so your looking at a whirl of other issues. Diesel fuel is not as combustable as gasoline and requires much more compression (almost double) then a gasoline vehicle, also diesel fuel is more oily and will gel up in cold temps which is why there is a heater on the motor to warm the fuel before entering the combustion chamber and third the engine needs to be pre warmed (glow plugs) to help ignite the diesel fuel. I would start by flushing the engines fuel system/tank and hopefully the injectors/fuel pump werent damaged/clogged. Its prob smoking because the fuel isnt igniting 100% and its like burning oil, it doesn't combust/explode like gasoline it just burns black due to incomplete combustion.
