SOURCE: Duramax diesel engine

Just a thought, the pump has a check vale in it that keeps the fuel from draining back when the engine is off. If the check valve is bad, then the fuel drains back and creates an air pocket that doesn't allow it to pump the fuel, basically it create a vacuum lock in the pump so no fuel can get through it. So, you can't rule out the pump completely just because it stays running. Now I know that I'm just a computer tech here and the 6 years of shop foreman as a auto and diesel mechanic don't count, but it's a thought.

I have a kia sedona 2004 2.9 diesel, i punctured the fuel filler neck lost all fuel repaired it and managed to get me home but on way home em light lit wont start now unless i rapid pump primer help


Sounds like you have damaged the fuel tank mounted fuel pickup pump. The pump is cooled and lubricated by the fuel it is immersed in, so when you lost all the fuel you likely ruined the pump.

1995 international flat six diesel 466 wont run changed fuel filter losend lines bleed out air wont run squirt eathier starts dies


Make sure you pre fill the filters with clean fuel. Locate the hand primer usually near the fuel lift pump. Unscrew the top till it pops up. Pump repeatedly until it gets hard to pump. You can crack the injector lines while pumping till fuel comes out or have someone crank the engine with the starter while you continue to pump the hand primer. Make sure after it's running the pump is pushed all the way down and tightened back up

How do you bleed the diesel fuel filter on a 1986 Toyota diesel Land Crusier?


I don't know a lot about these trucks but I can tell you that somewhere between the spin-on fuel filter and the I.P. (injection pump) is a 1.5" dia X 4" long steel primer. Just under the top of it is a spring. You will need to loosen or open the "Fuel supply line", at the I.P. (going from the filter, to the pump) and manually pump the fuel primer. Continue pumping the fuel primer until diesel flow from the opening. Quickly close off the drain-port or fuel-line, pump the primer a few more times (to increase line pressure and try to start your vehicle. After it starts, check for leaks. Let me know if I can help anymore. Good luck.

Mini cooper thermostat


If you are sure the cooling system is full, then yes I would look at the thermostat and the water pump. Or a blockage in the system somewhere.
I would start with replacing the thermostat.

Mini Cooper P1689 code


P1689 - No communication between ECM & Injection Pump Module. This is why it's a hard start and the peddle isn't acting like it should. There's a problem where the (Computer) ECM, isn't making contact with the Injection Pump module. So the computer doesn't know what the pump is doing or sending. Could be a cut in the wires, corrosion, etc.. So many things it could be, fuel pressure is low.

A constant whizzing


that whining noise is definately your power steering pump. the earlier models eg 2001-2003 just have noisy ones. so they say, if that noise become really excessive; its an early warning that its gonna fail. the newer pumps are much quiter, but i was quoted approx 1200+ CND for a new pump. I have a 2003 cooper, and the whining noise is loud. only once has the steering been really stiff, but i resolve that problem by restarting the vehicle. watch out tho, the power sttering could fail on you while your driving around a corner, and if you dont have both hands on the wheel, you'll go strait.
