SOURCE: ran out of diesel on

Crack the in line at the injector pump and bemp the motor. This will run the lift pump for 20 seconds or so. DO NOT CRANK THE MOTOR! Cranking the motor with no fuel to the injector pump WILL BURN OUT THE PUMP! Continue to bump the motor until you get fuel at the injector pump. Allow for the LP pump to stop running in between bumps. Once you have fuel at the injector pump, crack the #1,3 and 4 injectors. Crank the motor in 10 second intervals, allowing 10 min. or so between cranks to let the injector pump cool. When the motor starts close the injectors and let it run to finish bleeding out the system. The bleed process is easier with two people. You'll lose less preciouse diesel that way.

Well, Hate to say this to you but your Cummins 24v turbo diesel does not have glow plugs. The fuel temperature necessary for proper ignition is heated by an element inside your fuel filter housing.

Hard starting have changed fuel filter four times in two weeks


Either carry a lot of fuel filters or drain the fuel tank after it sits for a full two days, You have water in the fuelor a ton of algae. Confirm the water by pouring out the fuel filter. Any water will be obvious. The water in the tank will separate from the fuel if left standing. Then the water can be drained out the bottom of the tank.Water in the fuel can blow tips off injectors so take heed. and good luck.If you don't have a fuel water seperator, consider having a RACOR separater installed.

Dodge cummins won't start, fuel reaching injector pump but no fuel coming out of injector pump.


You said you have fuel flowing from the inlet line of the injection pump? But not at the injector lines?
