I work on school buses and every Cummins engine I have ever seen has a fuel filter mounted to the engine on the left side (opposite the turbo). On that era It is most likely an element in a canister type. there should be a plastic lid about 5" around. The lid has a 1/2" square hole for a 1/2" drive tool. You have to access it from the top. Most body builders, BB included, have a primary filter/fuel water separator back by the tank. Also, there will be an electric lift pump near/under the filter housing that is a common failure you should hear it come on for a few seconds with the key on and the engine off.

The diesel fuel filter should be located on the firewall and should be a spin on/off filter like an oil filter and must be filled with diesel fuel before installation. if you go buy the new one first it will help you locate it on your bus

SOURCE: fuel filter/pump

Hi,

To my knowledge, both are integrated in a single unit together with the fuel level sending unit, the float and a return motor. They are in a coffee-can sized assembly inside the fuel tank removal from the top. The big job is bringing the fuel tank down.

A temporary workaround on stuck pump is to bang on the bottom of the fuel tank with the ignition switch ON.

Hope this be of initial help/idea. Pls post back how things turned up or should you need additional information.

Good luck and kind regards. Thank you for using FixYa.

SOURCE: fuel filter location

Dodge Stratus fuel filter location, 2001-2002, access top of the gas tank from under the rear seat. Remove the sending unit with filter attached, replace in reverse order of removal. I found having plenty of lighting in there made a difference. Be careful of the gasket and seals and they can be re-used, dont bend the sensor parts or your gas gauge will will be FUBAR. Use proper tools for removing the retaining ring, don't get stupid and start making sparks with a hammer & a screw driver.

My 5.9 dodge cummins diesel won't start, I've replaced the fuel lift pump, and the fuel filter, turns over. But will not start?


Most likely you just have air in the lines.Crack them open one at a time and bleed them with the fuel pump off and on till you get fuel.If it fires dont hit the throttle let it sit and idle and close the line.Does it fire up with a small whif of starting fluid?

I ran a mixture of diesel and water thru my fuel system about three miles or so what do i do now


drain the fuel, change the filter, add fresh diesel. cycle the key several times and see if she fires up. you might have to crack the injector lines to help in bleeding the air out of the system. the good thing is the vp44 injection pump doesn't know what its pumping and 2001 24v cummins do not have electronic injectors, so you should be ok.

Well, Hate to say this to you but your Cummins 24v turbo diesel does not have glow plugs. The fuel temperature necessary for proper ignition is heated by an element inside your fuel filter housing.

Dodge cummins won't start, fuel reaching injector pump but no fuel coming out of injector pump.


You said you have fuel flowing from the inlet line of the injection pump? But not at the injector lines?

to dogy2003: 1995 Dodge Ram 2500's with Cummins Turbo Diesel do not have glow plugs

I agree with kious75, you need to get the air out of the injector lines. Has the truck ran AT ALL since the installation of the injector pump?

What type of additive did you put in the trucks fuel tank?

Have you replaced the fuel filter recently? Check the filter canister to see if fuel has been pumped in to it. (one way to check is to open the water/fuel seperator valve on the bottom of the fuel filter canister and see if there is any fuel or water in there)

I had a 1999 Dodge Ram 2500 with a 24V Cummins ISB engine and had trouble getting it to start. Had NO luck bleeding the injector lines. My truck was a 5-speed so I got it on dry level ground and had a friend pull me with his truck, I popped the clutch in 3rd gear and the truck cranked up beautifully. It is similar to the process you would go thru if you had an old 5-speed vehicle with a dead battery. The engine and fuel delivery system on my truck and your truck are different but similar. My problem was a bad "lift pump" which was about $150 to fix, but caused a $1500 injector pump failure. I was nervous about pull starting my truck but it worked... the truck always cranked up after that.
