It won't be likely to totally fail due to these issues, just that it gets lower pressure when warm. Starvation burns out pumps... It is all metal internally for the most part. The diesel is the only lubricant it gets.

greetings been awhile... drove the old beast a couple weeks ago, spent a day runnin' 'er up in the hills, nice hot day too. Pulled like a champ, but every time I shut her down, took a bit of crankin' to get 'er goin' again.

Thinking back, it seems like the issues started after I put a new fuel filter on in February, Napa 3417, can anyone tell me if that would be the appropriate part for a '93 IDI?

Unless it is leaking around the seal, it should not cause starting issues. The fuel should still be there from when it was running no matter the filter. If it runs fine on the road, then the filter itself is not the problem, but drain down could be. Usually when there is an air leak that allows the fuel to drain back to the tank, it will fire for a short period on the fuel in the pump, then die and take a lot of cranking to get the fuel all the way back from the tank.

alright, thanks guys... just hoping it was something cheap and easy. I'll get her to the mechanic one of these days, I did read somewhere that the fuel lines could be the issue, but I'll keep ya'll posted of the outcome. Maybe time for that 6bt swap, lol.

Keep some bottled water in the truck with you. Next time you shut her down, before you start her up pour the cool(not cold) water over the top of the injection pump. If it fires right up(or pretty much right up) then the injection pump is ready for replacement. All those things are is aluminum and when they were manufactured sulfur content was higher. They relied on the sulfur for lubricity and don't get that with today's fuel. Let me know what happens.

thanks flareside thunder. I haven't been around a whole lot this summer to drive the 'old oilburner, kind of my winter truck, so I'll be getting her out more. haven't done anything with 'er, 'cept drive it once a couple weeks ago, she had sat for month, and ran fine, took a few cranks to get to fire up, but yeah, gonna have to check her over a bit closer before the snow flies.
