Fuel Filter

Look at % good for fuel filter. I suspect it is dead or near dead. Had the same problem towing up a mountain pass. Left home with 60% life remaining on fuel filter. Suspect I got some bad fuel at a station out in the boonies of Wyoming. Limped back downhill after leaving the 5th wheel by the road and found a guy in Lander, Wy to change the fuel filter and life is now good. Drover thought that pass today at 60 mph; much better than 5mph.

Good luck. With a diesel; it is usually the fuel.

I had the same problem with my 2004 GMC. Fortunatly, the first time it happened in the mountains about 500 miles from home, I had a code reader that I used to reset the ECM. I kept the rpms down and made it to the campground and then home again. I changed the fuel filter and the problem was solved.

Do yourself a favor and either get a code reader that will allow you to reset or cancel the error codes or get yourself a tuner that will do the same thing. I got a tuner that puts the ECM into "TOW MODE" which adds a few horses to the engine and tunes the transmission for better towing. I always keep the truck in this mode and have never had a problem.

Replace the fuel filter housing. If you have to re-prime, its likely an air leak. I had a similar problem with my LBZ except mine was towing a grade. If you decide to replace the housing, check around on prices.

Had the same issue with my 2007. Turned out I had gotten bad fuel on the back roads of LA. Replaced fuel filter and "O" rings that come with most fuel filters. Fixed issue, always travel with spare fuel filter, learned quickly most auto supply places do not stock these filters. Was fortunate the O'Rileys did but at a higher pric. Got me back on the road, so extra price was worth it when you are 300 miles from home. Not the biggest fan of Amazon, but they do carry filter at a good price.

Did you ever get the code out of your truck? I am going to guess P0087. Low fuel rail pressure. There is a lot of things that can cause this code. The most popular are: bad fuel pressure regulator, plugged fuel filter, bad fuel filter head, bad water in fuel sensor, and bad fuel lines between fuel filter and CP3. A bad CP3 can also cause this code, but that is the last thing I would check because it is the most expensive.

The Duramax engine does not have a fuel lift pump. It is highly recommended that all Duramax owners add one.

jimmy. There was another topic about something the OP needed help with.As usual there were many replies from the FR group and nothing from the OP. I finally said to him if you got it fixed with the help of someone here please thank them. He got back and said something like i found the lens thanks. Losers!!
