Question about 2004 Toyota Land Cruiser
When I have my tank switched to the sub tank, I can start the car, it appears that it drains all the diesel back into the tank when stopped and then sucks the lines dry when I try and start it, its happened to me twice and I have had to Prime the injectors, is this a common fault or something specific to my car.
There is problems with the change over valve for the sub/main tank, this may be related

hi from the uk if your vehicle is equiped with a manual fuel primer device? and unable to prime f i pump ? no fuel at f i p are you trying to prime with the ignition on ? as the fuel shut off solenoid that is fitted to f i p is elec/ignition on activated so fuel can then be primed into the f i p and then to assist starting just loosen a couple of injectors delivery pipes while turning engine over then retighten the stop solenoid is liken to a temp sender unit ? and is normally located at the top of f i p adjacent to fuel inj pipe connections solenoid has a wire attached to activate fuel valve in solenoid allowing fuel flow and ign off shuts fuel supply if you operate on/off with key ign you can hear click if working? but better test is by volt meter to test if ign supply ok? if you have merely ran out of fuel or just changed filter ? then provided no air leaks on supply fro tank the above should get you started ? come back if you have more info/update? hope and wish you good luck

SOURCE: dodge diesel lost its prime!
You have to loosen your injector lines one at a time and have someone crank the engine. once you get fuel to that injector,tighten it and move onto the next one. This will be a lengthy process and make sure you have good batteries cause this process could drain them. Good luck

They are a pain in the ****. You have to take the valve cover off, remove the fuel lines, remove the inlet valve, remove the rocker arms, then unscrew the injector out. There is no doubt, that you can do it yourself, just leave yourself 3-4 hours probably.

you have probably had an equalization tube fitted to assist the oil flow back from the transfer case. if this is so you will clearly see it on the passenger side of the gearbox. remoove this hose as it will be conected to your original oil filler. after filling to the proper level replace hose as found.
