    HI BUNYADAWG,

    DOES THAT MEAN TO FIX THIS I HAVE TO BUY A NEW FUEL TANK OR IS THE PICK UP ACCSESABLE FROM THE OUTSIDE.

  • bettymatt Apr 18, 2009

    WELL BUNYA DAWG,

    MATE I DONT HEAR A NOISE WHEN I TURN THE KEY, AS FAR AS I KNOW IT ONLY HAS 1 FUEL PUMP AND THAT IS LOCATED NEAR THE ENGINE, AND I HAVE ALREADY HAD IT RECONDITIONED, TO NO AVAIL HAS IT GOT 2 PUMPS?

    if you have already had the pump replaced then we can rule that out tho you said "reconditioned" there may be a defect in it

    when you turn on the key.... do you hear the fuel pump in the fuel tank.... you don't need a new tank.... you just need to possibly remove the fuel pump and put it back in making sure the "sock" that has the pick up falls under the middle baffle on the gas tank.



    unfortunately that would require dropping the fuel tank to make sure the pick up is positioned properly.

    this is abit of a stretch.... but i'm thinking the pickup in the fuel tank is not drawing from the bottom of the tank but floating on the top of the tank... won't run out of fuel as the pickup will drop with the level of the fuel... but i'm sure it would draw some air as well.

Have seen new fuel filters not seal properly, due to warpage of seal flange gets bent when removing old over tight filters, check both filter & water trap, also bleed bolts on filter housing, use clear plastic hose between components to find where air ingress is coming from

2001 Rodeo 2.8 Turbo Diesel running perfectly one day won't run the next. Seems to be after it sits for a couple of days. Any suggestions?


Hi Peter, If the vehicle turns on the starter all the time, and sometimes starts and other times fails, check the fuel filter for leakage. Sometimes air gets into the fuel system. When it gives problems, open the bonnet (hood) and have someone pump the pump on top of the filter housing. If it feels soft when beginning to pump, I would suspect either a leakage on the fuel line or the filter housing. If you need to replace the housing and filter, remember to fill the replacement filter with clean diesel fuel first. the glow plugs can also cause problems if one or more have burned out. Regards John

Your fuel pump is most likely the problem, well at least it was with mine that was doing exactly the same thing, pump is prohibitively expensive to repair or replace, mounted small electric pump to fuel line where it comes through the fire wall, problem solved for a little over $100.00

I have replaced fuel filter in range rover and i cannot get air out of diesel fuel? and it now not starting straight away


When you replaced the fuel filter, was it half empty of fuel ? if it was , then its the fuel lift pump thats faulty. Rotate the engine till the cam allows a full stroke of the fuel lift pump primer handle, check the amount of movement of the primer handle and feel of it, that is , can you feel it pulling fuel. If the movemnt is small, then you need to change the pump.

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.

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.
