I have fixed the problem. It turned out being losing prime to the fuel pump. I pumped up the fuel pump and it started right away. Things you learn as a new Diesel owner. Thanks

1996 dodge dakota, used bad fuel, won't start


Pump the tank dry of the fuel using the electric fuel pump, just jump the fuel pump relay to get the pump to run and remove the supply line to the injectors and attach a hose. Use extreme caution around gasoline, no sparks, ground the container to the truck.

Both fuel relay fuses making clicking noises under hood in 2001 dodge 2500 v8


the clicking noises you are hearing are the relays powering up, that is normal. with somebody in truck try starting itw ith somebody under truck at the gas tank, take a rubberm allet and bang on the tank in the center of it while cranking, if it starts you need a fuel pump. make sure you have gas in tank the sending unit on the fuel pumps go bad all the time.

Hi, I have a 1992 Ford F-350 commercial box truck. It's been seating for approx. 3 yrs. I drained the two fuel tanks cause gas smell bad. Put In fresh gas but I get no fuel rail fuel presser reading....


YOUR PROBLEM IS MOST LIKELY,DUE TO BAD FUEL AND SITTING FOR A LONG TIME, YOUR FUEL PUMPS. I AM ASSUMING THAT THE TRUCK IS REGULAR GASOLINE FUEL AND NOT DIESEL. ENGINE. MOST FUEL PUMPS IN THE TANK WILL FAIL IF FUEL IS ALREADY GUMMED OUT, FUEL WILL SMELL LIKE "TURPENTINE" FLUID. CHECK FUEL PUMPS IF THEY COME ON FIRST BY OPENING THE FUEL CAPS AND HAVING ANOTHER PERSON TURN THE IGNITION KEY TO THE "ON" POSITION, AT THE SAME TIME PUT YOUR EAR CLOSE TO THE FUEL FILLER TUBE OF THE TANK THAT THE FUEL TANK SWITCH IS ON. YOU SHOULD HEAR A LOW GROWLING SOUND, IF NO SOUND COMING FROM THERE PUMP IS NOT WORKING. SOMETIMES (VERY RARE) YOU CAN JAR THE PUMP TO WORK BY BANGING ON THE BOTTOM OF FUEL TANK WITH A RUBBER MALLET, DO THIS AS SOON AS THE IGNITION KEY IS TURNED TO THE "ON" POSITION.

No fuel up to injecter pump truck just stalled


Did you check for fuel pressure on the line from the tank while you had the filter off? Do you hear your fuel pump prime when you turn the ignition on? First I would listen for the hum of the fuel pump when you turn the key to the run position (not starting the engine) May have to get a helper and listen at the gas filler neck with the cap off. If you dont hear your fuel pump, check your fuses and relays. If the relay clicks when your helper turns the key on ( put your finger on the relay and ear down close to feel/hear the relay actuate)., and fuse is good, yet you do not hear the pump prime, I would say your fuel pump is shot.

If it is a diesel,check for fuel pressure coming off the direct drive pump hose while cranking the motor.

Where is the fuel pump relay located an which fuse is to the fuel pump on an 87 chevrolet r10 truck 6cyl 2wd ? i was driving and then truck just turned off, now when i turn the key i cant here the fuel...


try to smack the gas tank with a rubber mallet with someone cranking the key .if it starts then the pump is no good .otherwise the relay should be on the pass side of the firewall.poss under a long black cover.the fuse will be in the fuse box under the hood on drivers side. var fctb_tool=null; function FCTB_Init_0b704873de9943d2aa9b1abbb4656a28(t) { fctb_tool=t; start(fctb_tool); } FCTB_Init_0b704873de9943d2aa9b1abbb4656a28(document['FCTB_Init_72d341bf61da4120a5167e6de35ebcf0']); delete document['FCTB_Init_72d341bf61da4120a5167e6de35ebcf0']

1999 dodge ram 1500 won't start


Since you know the starter is good, now have the alternator and battery tested. If these are both good (if either or both are bad, obviously replace) then try replacing the starter relay; this will prevent a car from even turning over.

Also, check all starter fuses, iginition fuses and relays.

Q: Does the engine turn over?

Q: Does the engine start, then die, or just turn over?

Q: If it turns over, does it sound weak, or does it sound strong, like it's trying to start?

Q: Have you tired jump starting the truck? If not try this: if it starts and stays running, pull both battery terminals off. If the truck dies, replace the alternator. If it stays running, you may need to replace the battery. Look at the battery and see if there is a date sticker on it to indicate when the battery was purchased (or manufactured). (If diesel, have both batteries tested). If diesel, if jumpstarting from one battery doesn't work try the other one. Also, if diesel, make sure there is at least 1/4 tank of fuel as some diesels won't start if very low on fuel (pump does not reach very bottom of tank and will not syphin fuel in).

If gas/diesel, and it turns over, turn the key to the on position and have someone lean down at the back side of the truck (driverside) and listen for the fuel pump to engage. If no noise is heard, consider replacing the fuel pump. Inquire with an auto parts dealers as to whether or not this truck is equipped with a secondary fuel pump (usually located mid-way on the chassi).

Please let me know if you need further assistance.

My son ran my truck out of gas. Its a 1988 F250


first, is this a diesel? if it is there is a line or oring loose allowing it to **** air--diesels dont like leaks like that and there is a whole procedure for voiding the air from the lines on diesels. next could be the in tank pump and also does it have duel tanks? does the duel tank switch work? running out of fuel with in tank pumps can burn up the pump (the fuel itself provides lubrication and cooling for the pump, gas or diesel) and of course check the filter, running out and refilling could have disturbed trash in the tank

2002 Chevy Silverado ran out of gas, now won't start!


If you have a schrade valve on the fuel rail, you can turn the key on and carefully depress the valve to bleed most of the air out of the system (valve is inside an aluminum or plastic cap similar to those found on your air conditioning system) You don't have a carb on there you have a throttle body...you can spray carb cleaner (not either) into it while cranking and it may help.
Sometimes though, a marginal fuel pump will give up when run dry of fuel. If pump cannot be heard with key on, check fuse and relay...if good, pump may have expired. also, make sure filter is able to flow fuel before replacing pump.
