Re: stalling at idle

thanks for the reply, I do get some smoke idling at the dock. It is greyish.

The feed pump (near the secondary filter) has been recently replaced.

I was also thinking the next step was to have the injectors cleaned. Is there any way to tell if the fuel pump is failing? That seems like its going to be an expensive part.

Would the engine run well over 1500 rpm if the fuel pump was failing?
