truck wont shut off

ok so i got my denny t fuel pin yesterday and installed it all was well ran good shut off fine for awhile thenlater that evening when i turned the key off the engine stayed runnning, so i now have to manually shut the truck down at the pump. i dont think the fuel pin install has anything to do with this. im guessing my fuel shutoff solinoid is bad. but there like 120 bucks at oriellys so i just bought me a pull cable im going to install. my question is will it hurt my injection pump any if the shutoff solinoid doest work? i really dont wana pay 120 bucks when i can just use a cable.

VW dealer only wanted $29.95 for the SAME FSS - it's used on the TDI.
Take your old one with you - first parts counter man I spoke to didn't know what I wanted
Tell them it for a VW TDI engine.

Welcome to the pull cable club! Actually, installing the fuel pin was the culprit to the shutoff solenoid failing. Same thing happened to me after I installed a DennyT. My understanding is all the extra fueling the DennyT and other pump tweaks combined with stock injectors puts extra pressure on the system and when the fuel goes squeezing by the rubber tip of the solenoid it will tear it off, especially if its a little worn already. Check out http://www.dieseltruckresource.com/d....html?t=117593 if you want to fix the one you have, and stop this from happening in the future. I haven't personally done it, as I like the extra theft deterrent of my hidden pull cable

Actually ---
it's the other way around ---

Turning up the pump increases the fuel pressure and due to the smaller stock injector holes you get higher pressure. That's what eats up the rubber --- I went through 2 shutoffs before I got my big injectors - haven't had any problems since they've been installed.

I've got the solenoid working so I don't have to babysit the truck after I drive it for a while. I learned the hard way that the turbo DOES NOT like it's oil supply being stopped when it's hot....
Turbo's are expensive, even the H1C

Now I have a turbo timer on the truck and I can kill the key and lock the truck and the when temps come down the truck shuts off by itself.

BUT I still have a cable - just in case

x2... i really like that part of it too. i can let my truck cool down (turbo and valve seats) yet use my keys to unlock the garage or house.

the only thing i wish was the AC and Heat would work without the key in while the engine was running. my dog loves the AC so i need to leave the keys in there while i go in the store so he doesnt overheat.

My main key does that also so now I use the 2nd key that works the door lock and ignition but not the glove box ( why ??? )....
Only problem with using the main key is that is if someone breaks into the truck the steering is NOT locked and they can just put it in D and drive off
