I searched for that error code, but can't find anything on it.

Polked around the internet and found references to the 97 3 Cummins engine fault code. Water in Fuel Signal voltage high, "no effect on engine performance"

I think you need to look elseware, in the morning you should be able to talk to a Cummins service center and get some professional guidance.

Good luck and enjoy the evening.

Get the fuel filter replaced asap! I hope you can do it yourself. It is not difficult to do. Anytime a diesel acts up, replace the fuel filter before looking elsewhere.

This and other threads remind me of the importance of the ability of DIY maintenance especially on diesels. One won't always be near a maintenance shop to help.

BTW, each of my 3 diesels always has a spare fuel filter in the vehicle just in case. Not too long ago, I got bad fuel which clogged 2 fuel filters and caused the vehicle to go into limp mode when using pressing the accelerator pedal past the 1/2 way point.

If you have a spin-on filter, check this video so you don't miss the o-ring ......

After reading your description about how it if running, sure seems like you ma have a fuel system that is getting air in the system. As TonyD stated, replace your fuel filter first thing with new "O-Rings". Sure hope it is something this simple. I have seen slimier problems like this throw all kind of codes.

Update

I've ordered a new fuel filter which is scheduled to be here tomorrow morning. In the meantime, thanks to a friends suggestion, I loosened up the filter slightly and had my wife turn on the key. Fuel flowed out of the opening where I'd loosened it. I then re-tightened the filter and started the engine. It purred just like it's supposed to. We left our gravel parking lot and drove down the road a couple miles to an RV park. Much nicer than the gravel parking lot. I have a feeling that there was air in the fuel line and now it's out due to what I did. I may not put on the new filter unless there is more problems, but at least I'll have it with me, which I should have had in the first place.

I'd like to thank everyone that replied and gave suggestions. Ps. There is no longer a check engine light or any scanguage codes. My wife, my dog, and I are smiling again. Stan
