You may have excessive dirt inside the tank that has clogged the fuel filter to the point that the dirt has gotten into the injectors, causing the misfire.

  • Remove the fuel filter and blow through it to see if it is clogged.
  • If it is, then blow backwards through it to see what is clogged in the filter.
  • Then take a fuel sample from fuel tank to see if it is contaminated with water or debris.
  • Clean out any water or debris in the tank and replace the filter.
