I'm curios if you somehow got air in the line in the process. You might just need to let the starter try for 5-10 seconds while the fuel pump tries to pump out the air bubble. Also check the line for a tight fit where the clamp is. Can you hear the pump just before you engage the starter?

    Well here's what I did. After changing filter I turned ignition on for pump to reprime bet fuel never did come out into the filter and lines. I'm thinking I may have had a bad pump to start with, and that's what was causing my sprinter to not run properly.

    I fixed it!! It was easy. Using a hose to siphon fuel from a tank that I placed on the roof of the van, primed the fuel lines by temporarily connect my hose to the main fuel inlet on the filter, and cranking the engine at the same time. After a few seconds I could see the lines filling with fuel, and shortly after the engine started!!!

2007 dodge sprinter code p0087


P0087 is a low fuel rail pressure code. One of 2 likely causes. the quick diagnosis is to turn the key into the "on" position and listen for the fuel pump hum. If there is a hum, but the van doesn't start, I would then check the fuel filter. in between 80k and 100k miles, some of the sprinters run into a fuel filter issue where the fuel is too restricted to flow to the injectors properly. If you don't get enough fuel through the injectors, the engine will rotate, but not get enough vapor concentration to start.

I changed the fuel pump but the van still won't


And you know the fuel filter is good? Could be injector problem: just as a check, spray some starting fluid into the intake and see if engine runs a few seconds. If it does, it is a fuel problem. Check injector fuse, as a start. Check fuel pressure. Check injector circuit. If engine won't start with starting fluid, check if you are getting spark. Problem may be in the ignition system.

Changed sprint van fuel filter n wont start now.


In an ideal world you'd fill up the filter with diesel before you fit the pipes.

The fuel pumps find it hard to pump air. Generally you should get it going within a minute or so. keep turning it over, but have a break after 30 seconds for about 15 seconds.

This is perfectly normal.

could be the injector washers leaking or leak off pipes but you will have to remove the rocker cover trim for inspection
