Let me save you all a bunch of head scratching and brain racking!!
I've had this problem on and off ever since I put my Stage 4 injectors and Holley Blue pusher pump on. I'm running anywhere from 20 to 26 psi to the injector pump. I thought it was the same thing, I blew something in the VP!!!
My solusion!!! Take it for what It's worth!!!! It always works for me!!!
If you are having a hard start Problem after Mods when it is hot and the truck cranks like normal at cold (ie after sitting over night )
1. on your next Fuel fillup spend the $11 and get 1 gallon of Power Services in the white Jug!!! Every Fuel stop Has it and it's the cheapest fuel additive out there.
2. Before you fuel up, Pour the whole gallon into the tank!!!! Yes the whole gallon!!!!
3. Fill your tank full of Diesel!
Now buy a new Gallon to keep in your truck!
Clean out a 20oz soda bottle and keep it with the power services!
4. Every time you fill up, or at least everother time add a whole 20oz bottle's worth to your fill up.
Now the rassional:
The problem we are seeing like this one is NOT and it repeat NOT the VP going south!!!!!!!!! It is NOT air bleeding into the system!!! It's NOT a Cracked injector line or loose fitting!!
The problem is that the new fuel that is being sold is a low sulfer Fuel!! It no longer has the lubrication that it use to. With added pressure from aftermarket Tranfer pumps and the less lubrication we are seeing reactions with the VP!!!
You may think this sounds crazy, but I've been there and seen that for over 2 years now!! Trust me IT WORKS!!!! Everyone should add atleast the recommended amount of fuel additive every fillup! I use power Services cause it's cheap and It has never let me down. I haven't added it for the last 6 fill up's and I'm getting the same problem again! Time fore a good system cleaning and Lub and start adding every fill up!
