I don't know a lot about these trucks but I can tell you that somewhere between the spin-on fuel filter and the I.P. (injection pump) is a 1.5" dia X 4" long steel primer. Just under the top of it is a spring. You will need to loosen or open the "Fuel supply line", at the I.P. (going from the filter, to the pump) and manually pump the fuel primer. Continue pumping the fuel primer until diesel flow from the opening. Quickly close off the drain-port or fuel-line, pump the primer a few more times (to increase line pressure and try to start your vehicle. After it starts, check for leaks. Let me know if I can help anymore. Good luck.
sounds like u got a clogged fuel filter, or you have got a fuel line somewhere that is sucking air in, could be anywhere from the pump back to the tank, if that shows no luck, get a piece of clear hose and put that just before the pump and look for bubbles, the slightest of bubbles will cause it do run rough and stall failing this and there is no air bubbles i would say your injector pump needs rebuilding but this is rather unlikely unless u have got a fair few miles on it
Hey bro, your diesel pump might be on the way out but here are some things to check and do and see if they help.
Replace the hoses going from the pump to the diesel filter with new ones.
Use fuel injector type clamps, NOT gear clamps they don't tighten enough to stop air not getting in.
Change the diesel filter, and make sure the drain on the bottom of it, if it has one which most do, is nice and tight.
Air bubbles in the injection lines are usually a sign of a weakening injection pump but I ran mine like that for a long time, the air works it's way through. Are you leaking any diesel? Maybe check the returns to the tank. Cheers bro.
when the fuel pump/distributor begins to fail or has failed it will not **** fuel into the unit to disperse. if you have an air compressor you can blow through the line going to the tank and listen for bubbles. if there are bubbles, youre fine. check your fuel cut off which is just above the line going in to the pump. i cant remember if its electric(which if it is you can have someone click the key and listen to the solenoid to see if its working) or if its vacuum. chances are you are going to need a pump. search around and see which is going to be the most economical, rebuild or replace. if youre going for a rebuild you must get someone who has the equipment and the know how. used is ok too. there is a place in california called silverstar recycling and they deal in vw and mecedes. great place to get parts. happy holidays.
Loosen the fuel line at the injector pump and crank the engine to push them out. You may need to loosen the lines at the injectors as well to push it all out. (I've had to bleed a number of diesels of all sizes) However, the other question is how did it get in there? If you ran out of fuel and need to bleed it out, fine. If not, an air bubbles are continuously showing up in the fuel line, you may have a suction side leak (a leak before the primary fuel pump that is sucking air in)
I would start with changing the fuel filter, with the tow truck that work on every day, I service them every two weeks, and the fuel filters come back full of grim the deisel fuel filters have to get changed more often with the fuel going around, try and stay away from pride gas stations, they have caused 8,000 in repairs to my trucks.
Hi, before the pump it is a loose connection or maybe a pin hole in the pipe, check all the connections and pipes for seepage, after the pump it will be a leak, i knowit sounds the same but after the pump the fuel is under pressure. It would appear that your system drawing air rather than forcing air in. daveg
Fill the filter with ATF, if no diesel fuel is handy. The T section with double o rings and a hair clip was removed, pour ATF in the resultant hole until it was full. Remove the clear line from the filter to the pump by disconnecting it at the filter. With a thin tube fill the line with ATF fluid until no bubbles remained. Reconnect the clear line to the filter. The car should start immediately.
right where the fuel filter is there is a primer you break the breather nut close back then prime(pump)break you will get air and deisel frouthy like bubble do this till deisel (fuel)comes clear,.,or start engine and break #1 injector line you wil see frouth lock back proceed to do remaining 3 injectors till frouth is out you will find engine dying every time you break injector,so lock off and continue with rest till it idle good
do not understand you what you mean. assuming your car was ok before you changed f/filter you need to bleed the fuel system of air. esiest to do would be to loosen fuel line at the injectors and have assistant crank the engine while you observe for clear fuel leak without any air bubbles from fuel line.tighten fuel lines and start engine. might have to repeat a few times. good luck.
