Need help finding fuel pump on 1967 mercedes benz 200 diesel plus what to do when ran out of diesel for two years


Start by checking for fuel delivery. I would disconnect the fuel line to the #1 injector (just loosen it) and see if you get fuel when cranking, There is a primer pump to get the fuel up to the filter. make sure the filter is full of fuel.

Start at the injectors and work back until you find the problem.

I have a 2001 Ford F-350 and when I go to start it , it doesn't fire up right away it cranks cranks cranks then fires up ? What is the causing this ?


Bad sensor, or fuel pump or fuel filter, on and on. I recommend you take it buy your favorite auto parts store, ask them to read ECU error codes. Any chance this is a diesel? If so your Glow plug system is not working right.

Bmw diesel wont start


I'm guessing that you got an air lock in your fuel system as a result of your changing the fuel filter... I certainly don't know about a BMW diesel, but in most semi-truck engines, there is a priming pump just for the purpose of getting the air out ... and the fuel into.... the fuel system. I've even been known to fill the filters with diesel fuel before screwing them onto the base.. This is risky because of the possibility of allowing some foreign, unfiltered debris to get into your pump and/or injectors, just because of your putting unfiltered fuel into your filter... Check and see if there is some kind of priming pump close to the filter. Also, a possibility is that you may have an electric fuel pump.... as to where all you may need to do is loosen a fuel fitting on the pressure side of the pump and filter.... and allow the electric pump to purge the system of air.. I confess to my lack of knowledge on your BMW.... but, I do have some basic understanding of most diesel systems... Good luck..

Changed fuel filter and now will not start 5.9 L diesel


you have to pump the system up to pressurize it.

The filters should have been filled with fuel prior to assembly onto the engine in order to aid this pressurization process.

there should be a manual pump under the hood on the fuel line... use that till pumping gets hard.

Bmw 325tds diesel flowing back to tank when parked


usual problem ,valves in injector worn for the fuel pump.easy quick fix this one ,fit a non return valve in the inlet pipe,check flow direction on valve when fitting and evan better as well is another in the bleed off return pipe .valves available from a motor factor or a specialist garage like bosch or lucas ,cut pipe and fit the valve with a piece of rubber pipe to connect the valve in line.or listen to the people who want to milk the golden cow and have the whole injector pump overhauled .

Bmw 1988 325is engine stops running sometimes - not lack of fuel or battery, new fuel pump. Sometimes wont start, starter motor working well, good battery. Replaced fuel pump - same deal.


The number one problem with these cars is with clogged fuel filters. They must be changed regularly. When you say it won't start, do you mean it cranks but won't fire? That could be a fuel pressure problem due to a clogged filter.

Fuel Pump relay, Fuel Pressure Regulator may be faulty. A relay can be tested with multi-tester, and a pressure tester for regulator.
