Ran into trouble yesterday. It felt like it ran out of fuel. I tried to switched to rear tank and still in trouble. I am not sure if I do have any fuel left in the rear tank. I checked the fuel bowl to see if it is out of fuel. It seem to be out of fuel because there is only little fuel left in the bowl. So I put fresh diesel in the bowl and able to get my truck back home. I decided to see if there is any fuel in the front tank. Sure, enough that there is more than a gallon in there as I am draining the tank. Maybe it is the bad fuel that causes the trouble. Much worse shaking than before during the normal driving. Will let y'all know more after this.

After drain the front tank, I noticed that there is strange brown stuff inside the clear hose and i am able to get some of it. It is some kind of sticky glum? Sort of like slime...yea, that's what it look/feel like. Wonder if anyone would know what it is?

Seem that there was about 3 gallon left in the front. Now I am working on the rear tank, seem that there is some fuel left, too.

Sounds like algae. They make a biocide to run in the tanks to take care of it.

After putting new clean fuel, I decided to replace the fuel filter. I didn't check its condition until I went to the gas station. I noticed the engine stumbling again, similar to last Thursday. So I decided to check fuel filter and found it seem to be full of same brown stuff. I didn't know what it was until Bugman mentioned it. Hopefully, that it will no longer being a problem. I put Power Service Biocide in the fuel during the fill up. Surprised me that it doesn't take that much to put in the tank since it is only 19 gallon in front. I think that I put 2 oz. More than enough for sure.

And be sure you drain the fuel bowl before pulling the old filter!

Uh-oh... that many filters? I need to drop the tank soon or later, to fix the fuel meter problem, anyway. It is way off. I think that it is the fuel gauge inside the tank being bad, sending wrong measurement. Possible that it is the slime that caused the problem?

I would guess atleast 3 filters but it depends on how bad the contamination is.

Another advantage to cleaning out the tank is less chance of the issue returning.

But no harm in waiting to see how long it takes to really foul your first filter.

It was less than a week that I had to replace the fuel filter. I did the search and couldn't find the correct part number to replace the fuel sender inside the tank. I am not sure if the sender had gone bad or the slime had messed up the sender until I pull it out of the tank after dropping it.

Drove 90 miles and I checked the fuel filter. It is little dirty. Not too bad. First one was the I replaced two weeks ago. Second one, just pulled from fuel bowl. Third one, new unused filter. Thoughts?

Been driving my truck two to four times during the week, to my work and back home. I am going to check fuel filter and DCA tomorrow. Will let y'all know more. Once in a while, engine shut down all of the sudden. I suspect CPS is flaky. Will replace it tomorrow. Have new one on hand.

Other than that, I am monitoring the vibration/stumble. When I change the gears, I pushed the clutch pedal in, it still vibrates. I would say that the transmission is not the issue but something else.
