Hello. If you remove the fuel filters and fill them with fuel, then hold the accelerator pedal to the floor while cranking the engine it should start. If that does not work, spray a little starting fluid (ether) into the air intake while cranking, just use the ether sparingly. This should get you going again, good luck.

Hi I am driving a 2006 Nissan frontier with a ZD30 engine. I ran out of fuel and it stalled. I have put in 15 litres of diesel but it just swings but won't start. Please help


System is most likely full of air. Sometimes continuing to crank the engine will purge the air and it will start but this can be hard on the starter motor. You may have to remove the fuel filter and fill it with fuel to prime the system.

Diesel fuel put into a gas engine how do I fix it


To solve the problem, drain all of the diesel fuel out of the gas tank and refill it with gasoline. (If possible open the fuel line near the injectors, place a flexible tube of some kind over the fuel line and drain enough fuel to allow all of the diesel fuel to be removed. Get as much of the concentrated diesel fuel out of the line as you possibly can before attempting to start the engine.) Then you would have to keep cranking the engine for a while to get the diesel out of the fuel lines and the injectors. Eventually the engine would start and run fine.

Engine surges


surging of a diesel engine is normally related to a fuel supply problem. There may be air getting in from a seal problem , fuel supply from the tank---tank venting problem--or the fuel return from the injectors is under pressure and not returning freely---blocked /squashed return line. Check the vent valve at the top of the tank as they block up from dust or wasp nests . check that the return line to the tank from the injectors has not been squashed on the chassis by a rock or bolt.

The fuel system needs to to have the air bled out of it. I suggest having a technician do it for you to prevent serious injury and damage to the vehicle.

How do I bleed the fuel lines to the engine?


You should not need to bleed the fuel lines to the engine, unless you got something in the gas that has contaminated it. In that case I would drop the fuel tank, unhook the fuel lines in the engine bay and blow them out with an air hose. Air in the lines will not hurt a thing, just put the gas in it and crank it up, it may stall a few times, just restart it and the air will purge itself. Depending on what is in the fuel, diesel for instance, will burn out just drain the tank and top it up with good gas, after running out that tank of fuel change the fuel filter.

Ran out of diesel on a 96 vw transporter van, what do I do, I've put deisel in the tank now what?


Need to change the fuel filter first, you may pulled some debris from the fuel tank. After replacing the filter you must prime the system to get it to start. Have a strong battery as you may have to crank a while to get the air out of the system. You can get the air out bt loosening a couple of the injector lines at the injector, crank engine untill fuel comes from the lines, continue to crank engine till it starts to run, will run rought untill you tighten the lines and let it run for a few seconds,. sounds more complicayed than it really is. Let me know if this helped

Put Diesel into tank but did not run


IS your car diesel I hope

3 things your car needs to run

GAS fuel in the engine or diesel
Air air to reach the fuel to ignite it
Spark check for spark ,
unless your diesel than spark is not needed as your engine work diffrent and produces spark by engine speed when cranking and compression of both mixes above

Last check the pump make sure its pumping fuel

(TOYOTA SURF 1990 TURBO DIESEL) No diesel coming out of fuel pump


If it has glow plugs or an intake heater you will need to disable the circuit. Then you can use a small amount of ether to spray into the air cleaner.!!! If you spray too much and/or Dont disable the circuits you can damage the motor!!! When you spray the ether, if the engine starts and stalls then its not getting fuel. This could be related to the fuel pump, injection pump, the fuel system loosing its prime(fuel line leak), fuel shut-off valve or solenoid. If it doesn't start then it could be related to your timing, valves or maybe compression.
