Hi everyone hope you all had a good new year 👍.... Right I'm about to pick up my first l400 but it has an issue (from a friend) . Occasionally out of the blue it will lose power and die like fuel starvation and won't start till maybe 5/10 min later with a bit of coughing and a bit of smoke then run fine again. Now it may run 1000 miles before it does it again or it may run 80 miles also makes no difference if it has a full tank of diesel or near empty. Now I'm prepared to take the chance and try and find the fault which I'm thinking the in tank filter may have that jelly crap on the filter bit and every now and again it gets sucked over the filter starving it of fuel so once it cuts out it slowly releases the vacuum and let's the diesel through again hence the coughing and spluttering etc till it starts again. so what do you guys think? or could it be more sinister†or if you have any ideas please let me know 👍

First ensure the fuel filter is fully tightened.

Yep that would be my next option. I always go for the cheaper one first.   Laughing

If it were the front seal would it not be more frequent or at least be getting more frequent?  .. it makes no difference if the motor is cold or hot and it could happen twice a week or once in 2 months 😕

Crow.
I think your diagnosis "Fuel tank filter" is about right.

Not nice job outside this time O year  Sad
