F16 shuts off after fuel filter change

Postby chuckscheid3 » Mon Feb 12, 2018 4:56 pm

I changed the fuel filter on my F16. I did get an air bubble but believe I got it cleared. The tractor runs, but has no power when stepping on the "gas"...diesel pedal, or after running a few minutes it will shut off. I've gone all along the fuel line to be sure its getting fuel and it appears there is fuel getting through the system, but the problem still exists. Any ideas what I could be missing? CS

Did you change the fuel filter just as preventative maintenance or were you having troubles before? It sounds like it could be starving for fuel. I would start by being be sure you had a good steady stream of fuel going to the pump and be sure the fuel was fresh and clean. Sometimes the fuel valve breaks off inside and does not re-open completely, for example.
