Had hart-to-start for a few days then refused to catch even though cranked strongly. Independent mechanic diagnosed as injector pump failure. Running on B-20 and occasional B-99 biodiesel for last 30K miles. No leaking anywhere. Very disappointing.
Ideal rough like needs motor mount not sure how to tell maybe fuel injector
