Check the fuel pressure at the filter. Odds are the lift pump, located below the filter, is toast. Continual cranking of the motor with a bad LP wil cause the injector pump to heat up and burn out. Replace the LP and fuel filter. Bleed the system by cracking the inlet to the injector pump and bumping the enigine over so the LP will run. Once you have fuel at the injector pump, crack injectors 1,3,and 4. Crank the motor for no more 6 or 7 seconds at a time until it turns over. Give the pump time to cool for a couple of mintues between cranks. This process is easier with two people, one to crank and the other to watch for fuel and tighten the injectors once it starts. If the injector pump is fried at this point from cranking with no fuel, the motor should idle, but will stumble all over itself when the throttle is applied.

SOURCE: 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?

SOURCE: 1999 dodge ram 3500 cummings turbo diesel will not start.

Diesel engines fire on compression alone (usually 400psi).The Truck may have air trapped in the fuel system.When you perform any fuel system repair on a diesel it is going to take alot of cranking to get the air out. You can take the breather loose and shoot a VERY small amount of starter fluid in the intake and it should start. Do not use starting fluid much as it can damage the engine. Good Luck.

i have a 96 2500 and i have found that if both batteries are not hooked up with a really good connection that the fuel shut off relay will not engage . it will just crank and crank with no start. it is located on the driver side of engine just about the center of the engine .its round and has a chrome rod coming out the bottom of it .it is mounted with the rod on the bottom .you can move it by hand but it will not lock in place unless you have the ignition switch in the start position. there is a couple of relays for it mounted on the fire wall .hope this helps someone

1968 ford 2000 tractor 3 cylinders number 1 cylinder isn't getting fuel from injector pump the other 2 are is pump bad or not primed right

You need to ensure that here are no vacuum leaks in the line from the tank to the lift pump, the lift pump which looks very similar to a car petrol pump must be in good working order ie able to pump the minimum pressure and volume at cranking speed and idle speed.
If the lift pump is not working properly it will cause cavitation at the injector pump that will cause low pressure bubbles on the intake of the injector pump. If you have a good lift pump and there are no vacuum leaks between the tank and the lift pump then it may be down to bleeding the air out of the injector lines first at the pump, and then at the end of the injector lines (be very careful the diesel is at 170 to 175 times atmospheric pressure which is about 2500 pounds per square inch (which can penetrate skin deeply and even bone). Most of the Ford tractors use a rotary injection pump. Having only one cylinder not pressurizing is extremely unusual, try swapping the injectors between cylinders to see if it is a faulty injector, making sure to use new or at least anneal the old copper sealing washers and tension the injectors evenly with a tension wrench to correct torque. If the misfire then follows the injector it means your need the injectors servicing. New needles & nozzles for injectors is a lot cheaper than a new or rebuilt rotary injection pump. Please advise if it’s an inline pump. (which I doubt they were rare because they cost more).

I have a ford 8000 tractor with a mechanical governed minimec inline 6 injection pump. the tractor was running at 85% throttle, i idled it back & it shut down. will not start now. have changed filters,...

Sean if you idled it back on a mechanically governed engine you have shut the fuel off to the injectors... turn it back up slowly and possibly crack the bleeders on the injectors to make sure you haven't sucked any air,good luck!

Changed 2 glow plugs and car still wont start when cold.

I'm going to assume here that you did test the other glow plugs and they are good? How about the fuel filter? Have you checked to make absolutely sure that it is not sucking some air? You do not mention how many miles on this engine. Have you had a compression check done recently? How are the injectors doing? If you want to check them yourself, go get an extra long injection line from wrecking yard or new one and lets call this the "test line".Take out one injector at a time and re-attach it outside, in the open air where you can see the spray pattern. If you can't hook it back up to the same line, try using the test line in it's place. Either hook up a external starter button so you can crank the engine yourself or get some help. You should see a nice fine fog pattern if the injector & pump are good. If the spray is weak or off-center, log it, reinstall it back into engine and move on to the next one. If all injectors show a weak pattern suspect the pump and have it checked. If not, just trade in the bad injectors for rebuilt ones. Nothing wrong with rebuilts. I have used them all the time and much cheaper than new! (rebuilt pumps much cheaper than new as well)! Finally, have you tried to cold-start it with some battery help like a charger that has a start setting on it, or perhaps a buddy that can add a jump start to a running car. Sometimes a weak battery just can't do a good job of glow-plugging followed by spinning the engine over real good. Well, that's my 6 cents work! (more than 2 cents) Let me know how it goes?

2000 Ford Mustang acts like it's not getting fuel when attempting to start. Battery dies after several attempts of trying to start. Does this sound like the fuel injector or a battery issue?

IT Could be petrol pump in the tank problem or it could be injectors but most likely pump but the battery should spin it over a good few times before getting down in power .. so fit a spare battery and jumper leads
to your battery and undo the feed pipe from the tank and turn it on and see if fuel comes out if no then its the pump or fuse to pump .. but
check out the pipe first.
Let me know how you go Ron
