    Default Mitsubishi MT18D starts but cuts out after a few seconds

    Hopefully this is a simple fix. My Mitsubishi MT18D was running perfectly but suddenly died. It will now start, run for a few seconds, then dies. Could anyone let me know what to check, and where that part is on the engine, since I'm not exactly a mechanic.
    Thanks

    Fuel filter, no idea where it is on you machine, but that's where I;d start.

    Thanks. I've bled the fuel line, but it still stops after a few seconds. I recently put in an in-line filter, which may have something to do with it, although fuel is going through okay.

    3 possibilities come to mind.
    Vent is plugged---try running with cap off.
    Sucking air via fuel line---install new fuel lines and clamps.
    Tank screen is plugged---blow air backwards into tank (blow from connection closest to injector pump)

    Inline filter is not a problem (unless filled with crap)
    Could also be injector lines that need bleeding (I often bleed at the injector)
