DIESEL FUEL SYSTEM MAINTENANCE
OBJECTIVE: Describe the basic maintenance required for a diesel fuel system.
If all diesel
engines had nearly identical fuel system trouble, diagnosis and maintenance procedures
could follow a general pattern. But, with the exception of similar fuel tanks and basic
piping system, diesel fuel systems differ considerably. Consequently, each engine
manufacturer recommends different specific maintenance procedures. However, the tune-up
and maintenance procedures described are representative of the job you will do. For all
jobs, refer to the manufacturers service manual for the fuel system you are
servicing, even if you fully understand all procedures.
