I am assuming the tractor is a diesel unit. There will be what they call a banjo bolt coming off the injector pump. Fuel passes through this piece. Some of them have a little plastic screen inside them that gets clogged up with debris. Remove the banjo bolt and remove the screen and blow it out with compressed air. Then use you lift pump to manually prime the system before starting. Good luck.

2005 Duramax stopped running.replaced fuel filter and sensor,no luck cam you help.


After replacing the fuel filter did you prime the system? There should be a small circular pump on top of the filter assembly to prime it. I own a 2003 Duramax and it usually takes about 5 pumps / turn over / 5 more pumps / turn over / and 5 more and you should get it started. It will take longer if you didn't fill the fuel filter with diesel before installing it as well. Let me know. Thanks.

Landrover tdi 110 fuel pressure non start


When you run a diesel engine out of fuel ,it needs to be primed in most cases,see if you can locate the fuel filter and and fill it with diesel fuel,And depending on the yr and make, your engine could be demanding higher pressure then you would think is normal from your lift pump in the tank.

2001 chevy malibu. I filled up with gas this morning and didn't get very far and it died. Won't start back up. What could it be?


Hello! I'm not so certain that the filling of the tank and the fact that the engine died and won't start are related...Lets get a little background...Has the car been running poorly; Or was everything in tip top shape, and after filling the tank it quit? Is the Check Engine Light on now? Any idea how many gallons you pumped in; And the octane you used? And lastly, was it an often used gas station?

Truck will turnover but will not start. We filled the truck up and it died twice after that. Now it will not start at all. It is a 2004 d350 diesel.


it is possible that you may have gotten a bad lot of diesel when you last filled up, check the fuel filters to see what the fuel is like, if this has happened you will have to completely clean the tank out along with the whole fuel system......hope this helps......cheers

About 5 weeks ago after filling with diesel fuel the truck would not start. After about 15 minutes it finally started. It continued to run perfectly for the next 5 weeks until 2 days ago when it dropped...


Did you empty diesel out and just refill if so then you made a mistake which could have damaged fuel pumps

Diesels are suppose to be bled after refilling if have been run totally dry.

6.5 tubbo diesel died and wont start back


Sounds like the fuel pump got air in the system. You may have to bleed out the air. Then it will run. Check the fuel tank for fuel first.
