Hi,I have been lurking and learning for quite some time on this site. I own a '77 FC31 which has developed an idle problem 2 or 3 minutes after starting engine. I have very little deisel knowlege but the whole event sounds simular to an older automotive (gas) engine that deisels after engine shut off ending with eventully stalling out. I have it serveced and inspected annually in the spring with a local big rig mechanic so standard filters and such should be up to snuff. The problem started at the end of my return leg of our annual Tennesee trip this summer in wich she would not idle with out tickling the throttle at a stop. My first thought was possiblay bad fuel so have since ran through and refilled with fresh local deisel wich almost seemed to help half way through that tank,but was wishful thinking for as the problem still exist sometimes worse than others. This Bird runs fine going down the road but she dosn't want to idle. Just wondering if this stirs any thoughts of possible diogosis from anyone? Some kind of fuel pressure, governor, ect.
