How to purge air from a cummins 24 valve diesel fuel system

I drained to much fuel out of the fuel pump while removing water from the pump. I refilled the fuel pump with negative results trying to start the truck. The truck is a 1998 Dodge 1 ton dually

Any help would be greatly appreciated!

Thanks.

CRACK LOOSE THE INJECTION LINES 2 OR 3 OF THEM WILL BEEN ENOUGH. TURN THE ENGINE OVER TILL FUEL STARTS PUMPING A LITTLE BIT. THEN TIGHTEN THE LINES. IF ENGINE STARTS WEHN BLEDING THE LINES SHUT IT OFF. AFTER LINES ARE TIGHT START YOUR ENGINE THE REST OF THE LINES WILL BLEAD AFTER A SHORT RUN TIME.

Is it an electronic engine or the boch inline fuel pump? They chaned half way through 98. If its an inline pump there is a hand primer on the fuel lift pump on the side of the engine, just keep pumping it until you hear the relief valve on the injection pump hissing, it should start then, if not loosen a couple fuel lines at the injectors and turn it over a few times to bleed the air from the lines.

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.

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.

Have a 2011 RR Sport Diesel. incorectly put 2 LTRS unleded fuel defore cut out activated.Used the reset tool provided & filled the tank with Diesel Intend on continually diluting on a regular topping...


You must drain and refill the fuel tank. Some of these systems use optical sesnors in the injection pump and can be damaged not to mention the damage to the pistons and valves. Great trucks. Drain the tank.

I need step by step instructions on replacing a fuel filter in a 1998 gmc 6.5 turbo diesel please


I got this from Haynes Diesel Engine Repair Manual. I bought it for my 6.2.
1. Remove the fuel filler cap and air cleaner assembly.
2. On filters without an air bleed screw, place a rag under the filter to soak up fuel and detach the lower clip FIRST to release pressure and then the top clip. They pop off with a screwdriver.
3. On filters with an air bleed screw (top passenger side) drain fuel from the filter by opening the screw first and the engine water drain valve (engine front near thermostat) if it has one. Detach the clips and remove filter.
4.Make sure the seating surface is clean and place new filter in position. On non-air bleed filters put the upper clip on FIRST. On air bleed filters secure both clips, then close the valve and attach a piece of hose to the bleed port into a pail.
5. Air must be purged BEFORE start up, so disconnect the pink wire from the top of the injector pump and crank the engine in 10 second cycles with a 30 second wait time until clear bubble-free fuel comes out the lower fitting or air bleed. Connect the lower clip on the non-air bleed , close the bleed hose and reconnect the pink wire.
6. Start the engine and let it idle for several minutes to purge any remaining air and check for leaks.
Hope this helps.

Hi, I own a 3.0 d4d toyota fortuner (same engine as 3.0 d4d hilux) and as of yesterday it started belching white smoke. it starts and idles perfectly fine, the exhaust just smells off. not like unburnt...


White smoke on diesel engines, means water in combustion chamber. Blue smoke means oil.
In what condition was the filter you removed? How bad? Temperature issues? Missing coolant maybe? If yes, you might as well have an internal leak. Some gasket maybe. Check all you vital fluids levels. If anything missing, take the time to empty the engine oil on a can, and check the colour. If it will look like chocolate brown, then you do have a leak from the inside.

A diagram for changing the water pump on a 2006 dodge ram 3500 cummins diesel


On a cummins turbo diesel the water pump replacement is quite simple i do believe. just have to remove the belt. The clutch fan, and pulley, then the water pump is right there i believe being held on by 4 bolts only and remove. Remember to place the wate pump o-ring on the water pump and hold in place with sort of adhesive just to make sure it doesn't slip out during installation or this will cause a leak. Once everything is installed then you will need to purge the cooling system of the air bubbles by letting it run and watching when the thermostat opens up. You can tell because the level will drop in the rad or over bottle, depending on what controls the fluid. Let it open two or three times, and go for test drive, all should be well...hope this helps

I would start by looking for the valve on the fuel rail (or at the filter housing), if you disconnected the fuel pipe from the filter feed you will have a lot of air in the system (and diesels do not like air in the feul system) you will need to have someone crank the motor over while you push in on the schrader valve to release the air out of the system until you get fuel to flow steady out of that port (this may take a short period of time), then you should be able to start the vehicle... would also recommend replacing the fuel filter as well. Hope this helps.

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
