WELL NOW IT HAS STARTED TO SUCK THE FILTER DRY MORE LIKE EVERY OTHER DAY.YESTERDAY IT DID IT AGAIN SO I FILLED IT I WAS HAULING SOME CARS AND I WENT ABOUT 6 MILES AT 55 MPH THEN HAD TO STOP AT LIGHT AND THEN IT FELL ON ITS FACE AND STARTED CHUGGING AND SMOKING BLUISH SMOKE BAD LIKE A TAR PIT...THEN AFTER ABOUT 5 MIN IT CLEARED UP AND RAN AGAIN BUT WAS NOT RIGHT I GOT THE CARS TO DESTINATION AND IT ACTED UP AGAIN..
WELL I GET IT BACK TO BASE AND NOTICE THEY HAVE 3 DIFFERENT CONECTIONS PUT TOGETHER FOR FUEL LINE FROM SECONDARY FILTER HOUSING TO BACK OF HEAD.SO I WENT DOWN THIS AM AND JUST HAD A NEW LINE MADE AND PUT IT ON THINKING THE OLD LINE WAS SUCKING AIR,PUT BOTH FILTERS NEW AND FILELD UP BOTH WITH FUEL.JUST MY LUCK IT FIRES UP,(SMOKING HEAVY LIKE EVERY TIME IT STARTS) THEN RUNS GOOD FOR ABOUT 8 MIN THEN DIES,REMOVE FILTER AT BLOCK EMPTY,REFILL FIRES UP RUNS AND THEN DIES,PULL FILTER EMPTY,REFILL AGAIN RUNS TILL FILET EMPTYS AND DIES!.....I HAD ENOUGH FOR TODAY....
SEEMS THIS TRUCK RAN GOOD FOR ABOUT 6 MONTHS AFTER CAT HAD THEN IT WENT DOWN HILL AGAIN WITH THE HARD STARTING AND SMOKING AND NOW THIS FILTER ISSIUE!....
IM GUN SHY TO TAKE IT BACK TO CAT CAUSE I SPENT $2300 TO HAVE THEM FIX THE INJEC LINERS/CUPS,ROCKER ARM AND ADJUST THE UPPER END AND GIVE IT SOME HELP.CAUSE IT WOULD NOT GO OVER 62 MPH...NOW NO PROB FOR 70MPH!....PROB STARTED WHEN I FOUND DIESEL IN COOLENT...
