Thank you.....I just filled it up (35 Gallons) drove it home parked it. Went out to take it to town about a week later and it wouldn't start. Sat a few minutes and tried it again.....cranked over quite a bit, started but back fired and ran kind of rough. Tried it again and it started and ran smoother. Ran it down the driveway and it just quit like I shut off the key. Cranked a while and it started and called my local mechanic.
My local mechanic said to bring it over Monday and he would run a fuel pressure check and diagnose the problem. He said it sounds like the pump is going bad or some crap in the tank.
I just wanted to drain as much out as possible before taking it to him. I told him that I just filled the tank and he said no problem he can get the fuel out.
Thought I would save him the hassle and a lot less time on the bill for him having to fool with it.
Any other suggestions?
