on the back of the engine close to the firewall by the glow plug controller is a high pressure oil switch. if this switch goes out diesel fuel will not reach the injector pump.try pulling the molex and jumping it out with a wire. if it starts. replace the switch. it takes an extra deep socket designed for that switch that can be purchased at any auto supply. good luck!

first place to look would be your lift pump (fuel pump located behind the fuel filter housing). listen to it when you turn the ignition on, it should run for a few seconds and if you bump the starter it should run for about 30 secs. if you dont hear it running that is most likely your problem

SOURCE: 05 grd caravan fuel gauge showed quarter tank and

The float sending unit is messed up and don't know now much gas is in the tank. The float may be stuck in a higher position showing more gas, in reality the gas level is way below. Try using a rubber mallet and tap on the gas tank near the fuel pump. It may help free up the float.

SOURCE: 1992 eldorado fuel gauge reading LO when there is a quarter of tank left instead of the range

In almost every case I have seen this is caused by a defective fuel level sending unit inside the gas tank. You will need to remove the fuel tank from the car to replace it. The car must be raised as high as possible to access the tank straps and fuel lines, you will need a special tool to release the fuel hoses from the tank nipples. Be careful there is a high potential of fire here and have had one catch on fires twice in my life. Always support the car on safety Jack stands, also discinnect the battery negative cable before starting work. The part is about $150.00 and 3 hours to install with help from a friend.

Check and make sure your glow plug controller is putting out voltage to your glow plugs, make sure voltage to your glow plugs is cycling. if it is not, at the front of the engine there is a temperature switch, if this switch is not working your glow plug controller will not work. also make sure you are getting diesel to your injector pump, if you are not, there is a high pressure switch at the back of the engine right behind the glow plug controller, if this switch is not working, your injector pump will not get fuel. also make sure both batteries are fulley charged, if one is low, your diesel will never start. you can jump out these switches, if your truck starts after bypassing, just make sure to replace them. i have a 1993 silverado C3500HD 2WD. good luck!

'96 Chevy Tahoe won't start


i had similar problem. hard to start in morning but once started, would start everytime until next morning. i changed fuel pump, filter, fuel pressure regulator, coil, cap, rotor, pickup coil, battery. i was finally told the '96 had a recall on the fuel injection assemby. i changed that out with the new mpf system and it solved the problem. runs like a striped ape. hope this helps.

I had the same problem with my 1999 chevy dually. I tried everything and finally after a lot of lost sleep headaches and money we found the injectors were leaking. It was expensive but it starts right up now.
