    Difficulty starting 5320

    Hi all,
    I have a 5320 that has recently developed starting problems. The problem began after it came back from the John Deere shop for a clutch replacement, though I don't know if that's related.

    The tractor is slow to start. I have to crank it for 6-7 seconds, then it will start up and run for a few seconds, and then stalls out. Typically, I will then wait a minute or two and try again, and after cranking for another 6-7 seconds it will start and then remain running. I'm concerned that this is placing too much strain on the starter and that it will burn out prematurely. Also, it's just annoying that it takes a couple minutes to get it started!

    This tractor is used daily and always has fresh fuel.

    I would appreciate any advice on how to diagnose and fix this.
    Thanks,
    -Dustin

    Also check your filters. Depending what was done may have dislodged something causing a restriction.

    Welcome to GTT
    What you state about slow to start then running for short period of time then engine stopping sounds as if diesel is draining back to tank from crack in fuel line or as previously suggested loose fuel line clamp. Some JD tractor models have factory installed fuel check valves to help problem with fuel drain back to tank.
