Was using the 2025 for a bit of light backhoe work, and when I finished, I headed back up the drive and it began running rough and RPM dropped way down. My first thought was that it was somehow out of fuel, but its got 3/4 tank. It got worse quick, until it sounded and felt like it was running on once cylinder. I shut it down because it was shaking so violently.
It restarted just fine, ran fine for a bit, but when I went to turn, it did it again. Restarted fine, then every once in a while, while trying to reproduce it, it would stumble a bit, the engine speed would slow, but it would recover. It did this a few more times while I was messing with it.
I did get a video of it the last time I was able to get it to stumble, but I stink at uploading that kind of stuff.
I hesitate to call the dealer since its not easy to reproduce. I think they would just check it over and say they cant find anything at this point.
The fuel is from the same place I get fuel for the car, Country Mark, and always seems to have better fuel than the other stations.
Fuel is always treated with Stanadyne Performance.
I dont think its a fuel specific issue, meaning the fuel thats in it is good, but what else could it be?
Almost acts like the fuel pump or related is going, but they generally work or dont.
I did notice while looking that there are a number of fuel related filters. The see through of course, then the one under the floor board that we thought they got rid of, but didnt, and what appears to be another in line after the see through filter. That last one is a metal type.
Tractor did sit for about a month or so (parked inside), but its sat before with nothing like this.
Ive got a lot of work coming up for it, so any help appreciated.
