Crack each fuel rail line in the firing order which should be 152436 crank for 1-3 seconds on each or till fuel comes out. the easiest thing to do is change primary and secondary fuel filters

Hello i broke a fuel line off the tank I put it back on and now primed and bleed from the fuel filter but still wont start. its a hino truck 91 tipper truck

start at the filter and bleed the air , next is the bleed screws at the pump (could be one or two depending on the make ) if it doesn't start then loosen off all the injector lines at the injectors and crank the engine until you see fuel dripping from the nuts ( that is bleeding the air from the injector line s)
have someone tighten the nuts while cranking and it will then fire up as the nuts get tightened

First thing to try with any diesel that won't start is to do a diesel system bleed. This one should be before the HP fuel rail type so start by bleeding the lift pump, then the fuel filters, then the main injector pump to lines to the injectors and lastly the injectors. Good luck.

My 5.9 dodge cummins diesel won't start, I've replaced the fuel lift pump, and the fuel filter, turns over. But will not start?

Most likely you just have air in the lines.Crack them open one at a time and bleed them with the fuel pump off and on till you get fuel.If it fires dont hit the throttle let it sit and idle and close the line.Does it fire up with a small whif of starting fluid?

I ran a mixture of diesel and water thru my fuel system about three miles or so what do i do now

drain the fuel, change the filter, add fresh diesel. cycle the key several times and see if she fires up. you might have to crack the injector lines to help in bleeding the air out of the system. the good thing is the vp44 injection pump doesn't know what its pumping and 2001 24v cummins do not have electronic injectors, so you should be ok.

My golf 1.9 tdi is miss-firing

Check the fuel lines, fuel filter, what is the mileage? If it is high than it might a sign of injector pump or injectors.

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?

I agree with kious75, you need to get the air out of the injector lines. Has the truck ran AT ALL since the installation of the injector pump?

What type of additive did you put in the trucks fuel tank?

Have you replaced the fuel filter recently? Check the filter canister to see if fuel has been pumped in to it. (one way to check is to open the water/fuel seperator valve on the bottom of the fuel filter canister and see if there is any fuel or water in there)

I had a 1999 Dodge Ram 2500 with a 24V Cummins ISB engine and had trouble getting it to start. Had NO luck bleeding the injector lines. My truck was a 5-speed so I got it on dry level ground and had a friend pull me with his truck, I popped the clutch in 3rd gear and the truck cranked up beautifully. It is similar to the process you would go thru if you had an old 5-speed vehicle with a dead battery. The engine and fuel delivery system on my truck and your truck are different but similar. My problem was a bad "lift pump" which was about $150 to fix, but caused a $1500 injector pump failure. I was nervous about pull starting my truck but it worked... the truck always cranked up after that.

Truck wont start after draining fuel filter?

You may have gotten air in the fuel lines. Diesels cant deal with this as well as gas engines should be a purge / bleeder valve on the fuel lines to eliminate the air. may cough and sputter for a while
