Make sure no check engine light. If light on run diagnostic prior to testing. If no check eng. light and no start when cold, could be bad glow plugs, Take test light from positive side of battery to each glow plug post (unplug from harness before testing) if test light lights plug good . if plugs good check pump mounted driver (scan tool required) if P.M.D. good run test for optical sensor in injector pump (scan tool required). Known failure points. I am working on assumption fuel pressure tested between lift pump and injector pump. Look for white smoke when cranking, if present fuel entering cylinders. I can't offer anymore help without further info. Hope this helps.

That eliminates the crankshaft and camshaft position sensors. Have you checked the fuel injector itself for an open winding or stuck valve plunger? There should not be a steady 12 volts to the injector--if good injector, it would be spraying fuel steadily into the throttle body. But at least the engine should try to run if poorly. Take the injector out, dry it off with air, and intermittently apply 12 volts to one terminal while grounding the other. You should hear a click from inside every time you touch 12 volts. If not, replace it. If it does, it may be plugged with debris. Try blowing through it in reverse with compressed air.

I can think of four things. Do each in turn and test the engine after completing each one. If it gets fixed early in the list avoid the items later on. 1) check that your throttle interior is clean 'like new' along with the idle air control valve.
2) Idle Air Control Valve IACV - How to check? Physically remove the IACV but keep the electrical connection to it and loosely blank off the ports to the throttle inlet assembly, exposed by the IACV removal. Turn the engine on and examine the IACV valve movement in response to additional loads (power steering inputs etc). The valve should open and close according to demand causing perceptible change in engine speed with increased power demand being made on the engine.

The electrical connector to the IACV can have 2 or 4 pins:-

2 pins: resistance between pins should about 10 OHMS +/- 3 OHMS. Resistance between either of the pins and the valve body is greater than 10,000 OHMS

4 pins: resistance between diagonally positioned pins should be about 20 OHMS
How to fix? If the motor of the IACV has failed then replace it. If the valve is gummed closed by baked oil and carbon then clean it thoroughly with carburetor choke cleaner spray and a cloth. Similarly if the entry and exit ports on the throttle body to the IACV look blocked again clean them out thoroughly
3) Throttle Position Sensor TPS - How to check? The socket for electrical connection with the TPS has 3 pins, one for 'ground', one for 5 volts 'reference' and a third (generally the middle one) for 'signal' output. Back probe the signal pin in the connector to the TPS. Attach the positive lead of a voltmeter to the probe and measure the voltage output as the throttle plate is rotated. If working correctly the meter should show a voltage consistent with the throttle position from approximately 1 volt when closed and 5 volts when fully open. What is looked for is smooth voltage increase with throttle change. If there are drop outs in the transition or that there is no transition seen the TPS is faulty.

How to fix? If the track is dirty causing drop outs, try cleaning it with residue-free electrical cleaning spray. If the track is worn it is perhaps easiest to replace the complete device. In some instances it may be possible to adjust the location of the central mount of the TPS contact arm along the throttle shaft by a few millimeters and in the process cause a fresh concentric region of



4) Fuel pressure regulator _ Yes I know you have checked it for pressure but at start up when the ignition is at position 2 the fuel pump starts up and pressurizes the fuel rail. As you turn to position 3 "ignition" power is cut to the pump and fuel pressure is maintained by a non-return valve in the pump. If that valve is faulty the fuel pressure in the rail will drop to zero just when you need it and no fuel can be injected. Check the fuel pressure when at position 2 and then switched off; fuel pressure should be maintained for up to 5 minutes with little or no loss. If there is pressure loss then either the non-return valve is faulty or you have leak in the fuel pressure regulator. If it is such a leak, fuel will dribble from the vacuum line connected to it when disconnected.

Chevy diesal wont start


check that the battery is spinning the engine fast enough . A slow starter seldom starts a diesel.. Check for air in the fuel system and bleed any air out . Check that the glo-plugs are working. check that the stop solenoid is operational and allowing the pump to supply fuel. check for water in the fliters / blocked fuel filter.

My toyota hilux pickup wont stert changed diesal pump and still wont start


Being a diesel, and changing the pump, you de pressurized the system. . Sometimes near the fuel filter they install a pump, or on the side of the motor near the fuel line. . It's like an old coleman stove. There should be a rod to pump the pressure back into the system. You may want to look at that route. If the truck ran after the fuel pump was installed and you let it sit a day and won't start, I would re check the tightness of the bolts and filters. Sounds like you have air in the system. Remember diesels run on pressure. Good luck let me know if this helps you

My 2005 chvey 2500hd diesel truck will not start,


on the back of the engine close to the firewall by the glow plug controller is a high pressure oil switch. if this switch goes out diesel fuel will not reach the injector pump.try pulling the molex and jumping it out with a wire. if it starts. replace the switch. it takes an extra deep socket designed for that switch that can be purchased at any auto supply. good luck!
