SOURCE: priming fuel system on a 8.1L diesel engine 2001chev 1 ton dual

Well, one problem is, if its an 8.1, its not a diesel. The 8.1, or Vortec 8100, is a gas engine. The DuraMax is a 6.6 engine. There is usually not a priming system on a gas engine, because the fuel pumps will usually get it through the smaller filters used quick enough you dont need them. However, if it is a DuraMax engine, then right on top of the fitting where you mount your diesel filter, there is a primer pump and an air bleed valve. What you do is, open up that air bleed valve ( its a little black plastic octagon shaped thing on the top of the filter mount) then you pump the primer (the silver button looking thing) until you get diesel squiting out the air vent without too many air bubbles or gurgles.

SOURCE: truck ran completely out of fuel.

is there a primer valve on the pump? it would unscrew and then pull out if it had one. take a look around the injection pump. but i belive that uses an electric lift pump it should not need to be primed there may be something else going on here.

SOURCE: 93 volvo 850 glt changed the fuel pump now car

Check your fuel pressure to ensure proper pressure to the block, also did you replace the fuel filter.

On a side note: 3 things a automobile needs to run

AIR-make sure you have a clean air filter and your MAF (mass air flow sensor is plugged in) if you pulled your breather to innspect anything, there is a possibility that it came unplugged or you unpluged it and forgot to hook it back up, a car wont start without it being plugged in if equiped

SPARK-Make sure your car has juice to the plugs, if the plug doesnt fire the car wont run, if you have to pull each plug and ground them to the engine block to see if they arch. If not trace the problem down (if you changed the fuel pump you have some mechanical skill and should be able to troubleshoot a spark issue)

FUEL-Check for proper pressure, dirty fuel filter(s) and if your system has a return line, make sure your hoses didnt get crossed cause this will damage the engine and regulator.

Hope this helps Thanks for using Fixya.com

I have a 2011 GMC Sierra 6.6 turbo diesel I ran out of diesel I put to gallons of diesel and now it won't start what can I do


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.

When starting the truck it turns over but won't start unless I turn it on and off several times


if the vehicle cranks and will not start, but when you cycle the keyon and off with a few second interval. by doing this you are priming the fuel line, if it starts after priming the system then i would look into the fuel system. would need to know exact details to give a more pin pointed answer

Dodge 2500 diesel wont start


This one is easy. When you remove the filter for service and are ready to install the new filter, fill the filter with transmission fluid. Yes, you read that right, transmission fluid. I am an ASE certified master technician, this will stop the air bubbles that are introduced into the fuel system, and causing the fuel system to lose it's prime.

Since the air is already introduced into your system, on the side of the engine (driver's mostly on the same area of the filter) there is a rubber boot covering a PRIMING button. DO NOT ATTEMPT TO START YOUR TRUCK AT THIS TIME!!! DIESEL FUEL IS UNDER EXTREME PRESSURE WHICH CAN CAUSE SERIOUS INJURIES!!! PLEASE, pay attention to this warning!! crack the seal on the filter open, remove the filter, fill the filter with transmission fluid, re-install the filter, and then prepare yourself to push that rubber button for some time, perhaps as long as five to ten minutes. When the button gets extremely hard to push, the system should be primed. Remove all tools and your hands from area, and attempt to start the engine. If it doesn't start, go back to the rubber button, and reprime the fuel system. Sometimes the process may take as many as ten attempts before it starts.

Hope it helps!
Warmest regards,

Does a 2000 Alero have a reset button for the fuel system


This is one of the prime moments that a faulty fuel filter will raise it's ugly head. It's because the filter has now been allowed to run dry and all the sediment dams up inside once the fuel reenters the filter. I'd start there. Then listen for your fuel pump upon starting. You should be able to hear it cycle for about one second to prime the system. If you hear nothing then it's a good chance your pump is gone. This also is a very common occurance when running out of fuel.

How do you know if the fuel pump or just the strainer is bad? i've had to "prime" the fuel pump (turn key forward) for sveral months now in order for the car to start if i dont, then im stuck...


I personally don't think its either. Do this for a living. You have an electric fuel pump and in most cases if they go bad it just plain doesn't work. If it was the strainer you would have problems with fuel pressure while running at all times. As far as having to "prime" the system you could be looking at a loss of pressure somewhere but sounds to me more like a relay or an electrical problem. What I am saying is that as you turn the key to "prime" it, you are maybe not priming it and its more of a hit or miss on the electrical problem. I would check to make sure your fuel pump relay is working. It should engage for about 5 seconds after you turn the key. You can feel if it is engaging by touching it when someone turns the key. Also there may be an ECM relay thats not engaging at all times. Are you able to hear the pump turn on when you turn the key? If yes when it will not start is there power (electrical pulse) on the injectors when it won't start? I would just hate for you to drop the gas tank for no reason and pay for a pump for no reason. Pumps are bad or not bad. Work or doesn't work in 99 percent of the cases. Fuel pressure doesn't change that much either. If there is a blockage it's there or not. Just my opinion and I hope it helps. Good luck.

I have a 1998 GMC C6500 that i have started having to prime the fuel system every morning , and can't find where it might be bleeding down at.


Your problem is that you are losing fuel pressure when the vehicle sits for a period of time. You will need to replace your fuel pump that is in your fuel tank.The fuel pump assembly has a one way check valve in it and when that check ball starts to where or jams the fuel leaks back in to the fuel tank. Therefor if you prime the fuel system the truck will then start it is a common problem with these chevy in tank pumps and many people have tried to fight GM for a recall but they won't budge so your only alternative is to replace the fuel pump on your own exspence.

Hope this helps you.
