2012 mule 4010 gas won't start

Recommended Posts

I just got this thing a few weeks ago. When I got it it would run but try to stall out if I got more than an idle. I replaced the fuel pump tonight because my jeep had the same symptoms when the pump went out on it. After I replaced the pump it will fire off but die instantly. Any help?

Check the gas cap gasket. My 610 mule ran like shit after an hour of running. The gasket in the gas cap was blocking my vent hole in the cap. The gasket was also upside down according to the parts diagram. I havent had an issue yet.

I'll check that too

What would the fuel pressure regulator be and how would I check it?

The regulator is likely in the tank. Did you replace the whole assembly, or just the pump?

Just the pump

Personally I'd likely put a lot of effort into making sure the injectors aren't gummed up from the gas that's sold these days. I understand the gas that's available, causes most of the problems like yours.

After posting earlier, I did a quick Google search, and it seems that these gas units are a bit finicky about gas quality, and the ethanol is the worst. So I'm thinking I'll revise my opinion towards the regulator.

Since you recently acquired this mule, you probably don't know much about the mechanical history of this thing. So I'd start with the basics. I'm certain it's in the fuel system, although I've been wrong many times before. And barring any unforseen issues such as your pressing the throttle, prior to starting, (some people do as a habit of starting). My gut feeling is the injectors. Although it could easily be one of the sensors, but I'm thinking that you'd get a warning light if that were the case.

Just the pump

Started messing with this again today. Pulled the fuel rail off and couldn't get any gas to flow through the injectors. I'm going to run down to the hardware store and get some carb cleaner and try yo clean the injectors. Is there any tips on cleaning them

You tube has some good video on this, where they use a battery and carb cleaner. I've never tried it, but I can't see how it could fail to work.
