Question about 1988 Dodge D-Series Pickups
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!
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.
