Q: Something wrong with fuel system.

asked by on January 05, 2016

Diesel truck computer says something is wrong with the fuel system. It could possible be an electrical problem.

I would recommend you ask for help from a diesel mechanic with a diagnostic scanner. He will be able to see what fault codes are in the computer and that will give him starting point for diagnostics. This will help him determine what the problem is with your truck.
