Take the vehicle to an accredited diesel repair specialist as there may be a relief valve problem or imminent pump failure. Discuss the problem with them. Make sure that the specialist is accredited in your pump as this is the best protection you are likely to get.

SOURCE: P38 diesel fuel injector pump overheats and inhibits starting

This is an unusual problem as injector pumps use diesel to lubricate internally and to cool the pump. For it to overheat and cause you problems means that fuel is escaping under high pressure or the operating pressure is excessive . Best discuss this with a professional diesel pump repair shop as I feel there is a serious problem in the pump.

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.

Diesel pump replaced - do not start


IF you have steel lines to the injectors then crack the injector nuts and turn over until the fuel drips from the nuts. Check that you connected the stop solenoid at the pump as it will not allow start until it receives power from the ignition. Bleed any bleed screws on the pump

How to bleed a diesel bus engine


there will be a small hand pump either on the diesel pump or on the filter. bleed the filter out first and then open the bleed screws on the pump and pump until you get straight fuel., The pump may requiring unscrewing the handle/knob first so that you can move it up and down to pump. When finished remember to re screw it back down. crack the injector lines and turn engine over until you get drips of fuel from the nuts. continue to turn over the engine while tightening the nuts and it should start before you have finished with the nuts.

My 2002 chev. diesel truck turns over but wont start, new filter


anytime you change the filter in a diesel you have to bleed the air out of the fuel system. The pump won't auto bleed the fuel system for you. every place in the fuel system that has a flare type connection needs to be bleed, start at the connection closest to the tank, loosen the connection and then crank the engine until you see diesel fuel drips from that connection. Tighten the connection while the engine is still cranking. Move to the next connection that is going toward the engine. Continue on in that manner toward the engine until you reach the injector pump/injector. Once you reach the injector pump be VERY aware that the fuel is at VERY high pressure. Do NOT put your body parts in the stream of high pressure diesel fuel. It could kill or injure you! Once you bleed all the way to the injector pump/ injector, the truck SHOULD start. Do not bleed after the injector pump because of the pressure involved, it is WAY too dangerous.

Good luck!

Ran out of diesel now vehicle won't start


This is not unusual on a diesel. What happens is there is air in the system. If this vehicle has an electric fuel pump loosen line where fuel enters injection pump then turn ignition key to the on position and watch for fuel to appear and then quickly tighten line before turning off key. Then try to start. If does not have electric fuel pump will need a second person. One will loosen line and watch while other cranks vehicle until you get fuel and tighten line before the other person releases ignition switch unless vehicle starts first. If that doesn't do the job do this where line hooks onto each injector. Probably will not have to do this to all injectors but could run rough until all the air gets out of everything. I have farmed with diesel tractor for 25 years and dad I drove the gm vehicles with the 5.7. You normally don't start a diesel without bleeding the air out of the lines although some will self bleed most won't. Hope this does the trick.

Had some gas in a can, so i poured maybe a gallon of it in my tank to make it to station. then found out it was diesel fuel. i only drove it a block and noticed it tryin 2 boggle out on me so i parked it....


Diesel should not hurt your car as long as you did not put to much in your tank. I would recommend that you buy a good bottle of octane booster dump it in your tank then fill it up with a high octane full like 91 octane. That should make up for the difference. Your car may smoke a little bit until all of the diesel is out of your system but it should be fine after that. I hope this helps and if you have any other questions please feel free to ask.
