I just bought a used diesel gator from a guy in Pa. I have had it for about a week and I can't get it to run. I was told it was a 95 but went to the john deere dealer and was told by the number off it it was a 98. I went ahead and ordered a manual for it and waiting for it. I took out the batteries and had them checked had to replace one. It still won't start. Does any one know what I should do next glow plugs, altinator any advice sure would help.

More details please.

Does it crank? If not, do you hear any clicking or anything?

If it cranks, does it sputter at all like it wants to start? Is there any smoke? If so, what color is it? How cold has it been there? Is it stored in a heated garage or outdoors?

All a diesel needs to run is good fuel, air and adequate compression. And it needs to spin fast enough to start. Air and fuel filters need to be clean and, if it's cold, the fuel could have gelled. If it's cold you should add a cold weather diesel fuel anti-gel additive.

There are a couple of guys here who really know them but you will find those machines are hard on stale gas. They really don't need to sit. You may wish to begin with fresh gas and filter.Probably would be wise to change spark plug also. ....

Sometimes I miss the basic..diesel...so gas and spark plugs not likely an issue. :-(

OK begin again: have you check to see if FUEL is getting to the injector pump? Have you checked the air filter. Sure your fluid is free of water?

It does turn over but will not fire, correct? Have you tried jumping it just in case the battery is not capable of spinning it as fast as it should? Have no idea on those engines if there any kind of starting fluid safe to use with it or not. ....
