Help with Exmod Bayou la batre Alabama

My son is broken down inBayou la batre Alabama. He is trying to get home.
He drives a 2.5 Exmod na Diesel. Symptoms are engine really rough and rattly. Sounds like fuel issue.
Anyone experienced enough to diagnose on the ground?

He is trying fuel pump first tonight. But Stephen (safari) feels it might be injection pump.

Maybe water in fuel filter? Might want to change it....prime and see how it goes.
Does the IP leak?
If its a lift pump he might be able to make it with an electrical pump installed.

always start with the fuel filter on a diesel. Everyone should travel with spares. It amazes me when someone says "it cant be the filter, I changed that in the past 12 mos". One cup of condensation in a tank of fuel from a filling station and you are stranded.

Doug is right on this issue. Always carry a replacement filter.

The problem could be he put gas in it instead of diesel. Symptoms sound exactly the same. Ask me how I know.

I'm surprised he drives a 2.5 na with the amount of NASs and spendy builds that pass thru your hands.

FWIW this is indicative of shit diesel, I have had this happen a few times in my life. They make fuel treatment additives to remove water from diesel and I would go ham with those, then go fill up at another station. Sometimes the dilution of the water with better fuel will make symptoms reside. Also cetane boost ect in the fuel may help.

Thats a $25 solutionbut after that its most likely that filter, especially on a 2.5NA

Yes. I went over the fuel filter replacement with him. Working on that now. Air cleaner. Then after that will look at fuel pump. Hopefully its only a filter issue.
Poor kid. I don't want him stranded in the bayou. He just passed his Sea Captain training and wants to head home.
I also don't want to add airfare and trucking costs to bring the beastly thing back (truck not my son) if its a minor issue.

Does this 110 have a sedimenter?

FWIW if it is the fuel these symptoms will persist with the filter change. See if the shop will drain the fuel and then he can refill.

See if his last action was to refuel the tuck

Second. Check the fuel flow out of the filter before the IP.

Then you decide to change the filter or not.
The risk with changing the filter, if it is the sandwich style, it is very very easy to twist one of the large round seals and suck in air... end of game scenario.

With a sedimenter (to go back to the original question), it can be drained.
When drained it is very easy to see water, and diesel engines will not run on water.

Since the first 2 troubleshooting basic steps were possibly skipped, we have no "arm chair quarterback" advice from afar unless the filter has not been changed yet.

If you want good advice, I can PM you my cell and talk through solutions with the new captain.

Its probably the spark plugs or crank position sensor.
