RE: Workhorse W24 (8.1L) fuel filter

I just received an email from Wheeler Fleet. They have a replacement for the adapter. It's Wheeler Tru-fit. Item 2903-0000. I had the workhorse part on order through them and was told I could cancel the backorder and substitute this one. Its about $22. Now all I need are catalytic converters!! Rotten thieves. Yea I got the same email. Guess the original part is nearly impossible to get.

RE: Loss of power when driving

So the response of the ECU to a bad knock sensor is to max out the fuel trim. What that means is it runs the engine as lean as possible which would definitely account for the lost power. Looks like knock sensors run about $100 each, harnesses are around $45 and labor will probably be a few hundred. Btw there's a known issue with rusting of the knock sensors so when they're replaced make sure they follow the TSB and put in the silicone dam to stop future water intrusion which should keep you from needing to do the repair again in the future. I agree that it’s really strange to have both failing at the same time. I wonder if some other condition causes the engine to think the sensors are bad. If you do replace them, they’re only $36.79 each for the ACDelco sensors on rockauto.com. When I looked into this a bit, it seems the 8.1L has the knock sensors on the outside of the engine below the exhaust manifolds so the water intrusion isn’t an issue there. https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=z1V5Gb0VRFM Also on Amazon: Sensor Connector Wow, great info. Thank you.

RE: Loss of power when driving

Well, I was able to get someone with a Code reader to go over and check it for me. It was creating 2 codes - The first was P0327 and the second was P0332. According to what I have looked up on them, one is Knock Sensor 2, circuit low bank 2 The other code was - Knock sensor 1, circuit low bank 1 I'm still suspecting a fuel filter which is nearly impossible to find with an adapter kit to take it from 3 ports down to just 2. I have tried to order from numerous places and they all seemed to be back ordered. I won't be back at the RV until around Oct at the earliest. If not then, December will be my next attempt. I would check the wiring for the knock sensors. It may be pulling timing way back if the knock sensors are not reading correctly, as a failsafe. that would make it loose a bunch of power and it could backfire when you get on it, as you reported. But it is odd for them both to fail at once so I would inspect the wiring harness to the sensors. I'm not sure why you are suspecting the fuel filter when the computer is reporting a problem reading both knock sensors. Not that it hurts to replace the fuel filter. I don't know much about engines. Thought maybe the lack of fuel due to a fuel clog caused it to backfire and that is why 2 knock sensor errors came up. But if that isn't likely, that's good to know as well. Trying to get a good game plan together before I arrive back at the RV. Thanks

RE: Loss of power when driving

Did you ever get this sorted out? Edit: Never mind, I just saw your other post about your RV being miles away. Well, I was able to get someone with a Code reader to go over and check it for me. It was creating 2 codes - The first was P0327 and the second was P0332. According to what I have looked up on them, one is Knock Sensor 2, circuit low bank 2 The other code was - Knock sensor 1, circuit low bank 1 I'm not sure if these are the result of a back fire when I put the gas pedal to the floor trying to go up a hill because it already had no power and no check engine light or if this was the problem already before the check engine light eventually did come on. I'm still suspecting a fuel filter which is nearly impossible to find with an adapter kit to take it from 3 ports down to just 2. I have tried to order from numerous places and they all seemed to be back ordered. I won't be back at the RV until around Oct at the earliest. If not then, December will be my next attempt.

RE: Workhorse W24 (8.1L) fuel filter

** Quick update ** After ordering from Wheeler I got an email that the estimated 5 days to delivery wasn't going to happen due to the part being on back order. (same as you Rick) Which is what every other place on the web is saying. Looks like the part hasn't been made for a number of years. None of my local auto parts stores can get it either so I'm at a loss of where I can find one of these things (the adapter kit). The original filter has 3 connections and is not a removable piece on the end so I definitely need the adapter. The bad thing is my window of opportunity to go pick up my RV is a single day in October so I would like to buy one before then so that doesn't hang me up again.

RE: Workhorse W24 (8.1L) fuel filter

All good Rick. I went ahead and ordered one and I'll try my luck in October when I get back to the RV. Cheers init6, My apologies, I didn't follow your first link. THAT is the part you need. I just went to the link in your post and that seems to be to a company where you can buy it. I was able to put an adapter in my cart. I will say, from memory, that it is quite a bit cheaper than what they were going for back in the mid-2000's. You might want to purchase a spare, just in case someone accidentally throws away. Heck...I may order one...just in case. :) I apologize for not following your link before I made the post above. Good Luck, ~Rick ON EDIT: I am going to order one for a spare, the shipping for under orders under $199 is $19.99. A bit steep, considering the size of the part. From what I remember, though, that plus the cost they're asking for the adapter is just about what they cost back in the mid-2000's. On second Edit: OK...this post cost me about $150! LOL I HATE paying more for shipping than the cost of the part, so I added some filters and miscellaneous items to the cart to balance out the shipping charge somewhat. Weird, I know. Pay $150 instead of under $40. But that's how I roll! It's the principal of the thing! LOL

RE: Workhorse W24 (8.1L) fuel filter

Wix filter should be available at most O'Reilly auto parts. Microgard O'reilly brand made by Wix Unfortunately these filters won't work without that adapter to go from 3 connections down to 2. That is the part I can't seem to find anywhere.

RE: Workhorse W24 (8.1L) fuel filter

The fuel filter W8006889 at Wheeler fleet looks correct. it cross references to the Workhorseparts.com site. https://www.workhorseparts.com/index.php?route=product/search&search=W8006889&description=true The original adapter that comes with the filter should still be in place on your Motorhome? you could just reuse it and buy just the filter? https://www.ultrarvproducts.com/W0013351-Standard-In-Out-Fuel-Filter OH.... I was under the impression the original filter didn't have an adapter but was actually a 1 piece design. I haven't gotten a close up look at it yet.

Workhorse W24 (8.1L) fuel filter

I saw a few posts about this subject but the links given in those older posts no longer work. My issue is this - I'm having a hard time finding the older 2005 Workhorse W24 chassis (gas 8.1L) fuel filters. Seems like they no longer make them. I'm even having a hard time finder the adapter so that I can use a more common filter that has 1 input and 1 output port (mind has 1 on the input and 2 on the output side). I'm guess that third connection is a return line. ANYWAY, I did come across this adapter and I'm wondering if anyone knows if this thing will work with the 2005 Pace Arrow - W24's. Here is the link for it. https://www.wheelerfleet.com/product/filter-kit-fuel/26878 If anyone has any experience with this I would love to hear about it. I believe if I had this adapter I could then use a newer 2 connection filter. As cheap as it is I would just buy the thing and try it but because my RV is 800 miles away in storage and when I go back to try to get this thing running correctly I will only have 1 day to do it otherwise I will have to leave it there again. So I need to show up with the right parts. Thanks in advance Picture of the filter type I need to match is here ->https://www.ultrarvproducts.com/image/cache//catalog/Products/Workhorse/Fuel%20Pumps/W8006889-location-800x800_0.jpg

RE: Loss of power when driving

Just an update…. Have tried a new tank of gas. Ran all the old out first. Replaced the air filter and vacuumed out some deteriorated foam in there with a shop van. Replaced the mass airflow sensor with a new one and still the same issue. I’m wondering if it isn’t fuel pump or fuel filter related. Did you also replace the MAP sensor? Also, you said the check engine light came on. What was the code? Mine was setting p0101 when pulling grades. I don’t have a code reader but plan on getting one to see what code it is throwing. Not sure where the map sensor is. You can stop by most auto parts or oil change places and they’ll check for free. The map sensor sits on top of the engine under the big plastic cover. It is held in by one bolt with a washer that hangs over the sensor. Its really easy to change. I did both at the time because the MAF test uses the MAP to cross check. Look here for a picture of it. Ah cool. Thanks for the info. Ordering a cheap code reader off Amazon since I probably need one anyway. Cheers

RE: looking for owners of 2004-2005 Pace Arrows

Anyone happen to know where the engine air filter is on a 2005 pace arrow? I have a coach owners manual but it doesn’t cover chassis/engine stuff. Is it accessible from the front? I didn’t see anything that looked obvious and when I opened up the dog house compartment inside the coach I didn’t notice it there either… Thanks in advance

Good tips, I’ll start looking into those. Thanks again

Loss of power when driving

I have a 2005 pace arrow with a workhorse chassis that seems to have lost a lot of power. The the point that it can barely make it up a hill or get up to 65 mph on the interstate. This comes after pulling it out of long term storage. I haven’t driven it in a while but have had someone starting it for me once a month and adding new fuel and stabil when needed while I was serving overseas. Any thoughts on what to look for? It sounds like it is running fine for the most part aside for a sputter every now and then when I put the gas pedal down all the way. At some point today while going up a hill, the check engine light came on. Thanks in advance
