Yes, you can relatively easily determine if your fuel filter is clogged. The XJ600 has a vacuum operated fuel pump below the downdraft carb bank. This is what it looks like. The stock fuel filter is an inline filter and this is what it looks like. As I'm sure you have noticed, the filter is a bit opaque and you can see if it is clogged. It's very easy ...

Sounds like the throttle plate is dirty, closing off the needed air for idle, causing the idle to be low, especially when cold when the engine needs more air to maintain proper idle speed. If the idle air control valve is compensating all it can to give more air, eventually it cannot go far enough to keep the engine running when cold. Try removing the ...

I would suggest that the original problem was not the use of E10 (the vast majority of all gas sold in the US is E10 fuel due to federal mandate), but rather you received a ration of bad gas which probably had water in it, or was old gas (had been sitting for a while without new gas infused in the mix). I don't think there are any remnants of the bad gas in ...

This is unrelated to the use of E10. Almost all, if not all modern vehicles can use E10. Concentrations above 10% Ethanol, E15 for example can cause problems in cars not designed for it. What you are describing is a misfire, and it's likely cause is in the ignition side. Spark plugs, wires, etc. Check for history codes, if your check engine light was ...

Would need alot more technical information such as a puting it on maching to read error codes that is your first thing you should do but sounds like a dirty MAF

Nothing will be damaged if you run out of diesel, but the injector pumps don't work if there's even the smallest amount of air in them. Therefor it will be necessary to bleed the air completely from the fuel lines and injector pumps before the engine will start and run properly. Regarding junk in the bottom of the tank getting into the system, that's what ...

All the analog gauges work by sensing varying resistance by a float sensor which eventually results in thermal conversion or Voltage mapping to fuel levels. The accuracy suffers due to non-linearity of these float sensors.The methods mentioned by Nick & Mac are right here; but it gets very tedious if your demands of accuracy are nearly 1% of total volume ...
