Re: Volvo Penta MD7A started but shut off
there was plenty of fuel in the tank... I had drained the fuel filter in the fall... does this mean i need to bleed the fuel system?
You probably could have just bled it at the fuel filter before starting and all would have been fine. But that slug of air made its way all the way to the injectors so you'll have to bleed the whole system.
no problem though, we've all done it at least once! it's like running aground ... sort of a rite of passage :-)
