    2010 maxforce 13 fuel prime

    I have a semi that I removed an injector and quill and reinstalled but now it won't start. I tried about 10 times at 5-10 sec cranking, waiting about a half hr between. Not sure how many times I should keep trying if it will ever come to?

    99 ram 1500 brakes sticking

    87 ford f250 transfer case

    It seems to be stuck in 4 low. It shifts fine and took linkage off and shift underneath but it stays in slow speed. I assume I'll have to take transfer case off and take apart since something must have come apart inside?

    How to fix common problem of idi fuel draining back

    I found the original piece that was intake. Don't understand why it has an inlet/outlet on both ends. I believe the pick up screen would go on big dia. Which would make it a check valve?

    How to fix common problem of idi fuel draining back

    Mine looked like this but the screen and what I thought was a check valve was disinegrated and cracked. I was going to take a picture of mine (but can't remember where I put it because of all-timers) it has like an orange needle I thought was a one way valve. Hopefully my ace outfit will work ok...

    Every ford idi diesel I had (3) had the same problem when it sits a day you start it and it shuts off right away because the fuel drains down. And you have to crank and crank to get it going.
