It just recently began acting strangely. The behavior is intermittent.
Here's the symptoms:
- First thing in the morning, it takes several cranks for the engine to start (2-3 seconds)
- After running the engine all day, it takes even more cranks for the engine to start (5-10 seconds)
- After running the engine all day, once or twice, the engine did not start. After letting the engine cool (overnight), it will usually start.
- Sometimes while driving, the engine begins to shake, sputter and loose power. After letting the engine cool it will usually start and run normally.
This is beginning to happen with more frequency so I'm starting to worry.
I haven't run it in a few days now so I added some STP fuel injector cleaner and test-drove it.
It seems to run well now, but I get the sense something is blocking the fuel line and this problem will persist.
Anyone else experience these symptoms on a similar engine?
You guys came through for me last time, hopefully this question will be met with the same level of expertise.
Thanks in advance!
