Most people heard that CRD's are s**ty vehicles. That break down a lot. My Liberty has almost 100k grease miles and runs better than most with 166k total miles. Did you not read "tank and conversion pictures" thread? The trick is good filtering and a quality conversion. I have an electric heater that heats the common rail, I believe this to be very important. Helps that I live in south florida also.

the current system has 65k on it and the problem I am having currently is that air is being introducted into the vo fuel filter... and creates a die out after about 3 mins
I have yet to take it apart there are 2 pumps in my system; a vo pump and a boost pump.
my guess is that on of the lines is allowing air into the system before the vo filter.
give me your input.
thanks- Jon

I use almost no hose clamps because they are a week spot. Those are the first place to look for air leaks. And the hoses go bad.
