Re: Diesel Engine trouble-shooting

I second the thought about air getting in the lines or perhaps a clogged filter. If you've checked the impeller and found it to be ok, it probably is not overheating. Besides, I had the impression from your description that the engine had not run a long time before dying. So, I think fuel delivery problem; air in lines or dirty, clogged filter.
