Question about Cars & Trucks

DAN WEBSTER, expert! I need to know what I am doing wrong with priming a Monitor Lifter Pump 1103.

Primed it, heater ran, but then, as soon as the primer substance ran out, the heaer stopped. It has always worked fine, but a few months ago, my adult kids turned it off when they smelled fumes. Turned out that they'd moved it away from the wall too far, and the exhaust had come undone. Fixed THAT,but then ... the lifter hd to be primed. Did that but now, it won't work! I feel as though I'm doing nothing!

Try priming it again but when it starts let the bleeder open until it starts and runs for a few seconds and close it , sounds like it is getting air bound and is not priming correctly

If engine runs until gas tank is empty, will injectors need to be primed, and if so, how to prime them?


No, The injectors do not need primed. If having trouble getting fuel to engine, Check and be sure fuel pump is working properly. God-Bless! If not check the fuses and relay first.

How do I fix the Monitor Lifter Pump 1103?


The pump is not drawing oil but only when when sucking. (You knew that). I would guess that moving the heater caused a small leak in the oil suction line or pluggage in a suction strainer/filter. When primed, everything is OK. So ignitor, nozzle, etc is OK when the prime fluid is present. But the pump cannot draw liquid. Look for a very small leak in the suction letting air in. Look for pluggage in a suction filter. It won't take much air inleak or suction restriction to stop a pump from lifting.

12ht wont prime


filling the filters before installing will make priming go more quickly.
once the pump is primed crack open the fuse line at the injector while cranking until you have fuel pulsing out, close it then move on to the next injector.
keep doing this until the engine runs smoothly.
it may start running before all the injectors have been purged so keep clear of all moving parts and a fire extinguisher handy would be a good idea.

Not getting fuel from tank to engien, checked lines thats not the problem, hooked up a electrical fuel pump and it ran fine. and yes it does have gas.


it could be the pump or the pump relay. relay is most come to go with the age but same as the pump if it has never been replaced in the past.

I have a 2004 outlander SUV Mitshuisi. I ran out of gas 5 feet from the gas pump so I coasted in to the pump put gas in now it will not start. Do you know what the problem is ?


probably needs to be primed. Sometimes it takes a few minutes for fuel pump to get fuel up to injectors. That or fuel filter is clogged, when you run the tank almost dry any sediment and dirt gets sucked into fuel pump.

Engine wont start without priming with gas first, then runs well


i have the same problem on a 98 jimmy 4.3 4x4.
i replaced the fule pump and have good pressure.
new wiers & coil (good spark) no MIL & no codes.
will only start when primed. it will run & drive all day
with no problems.
but once it has been turned off (warm or cold) i will
have to prime it once again to start it.
i have another engine that was in it before it spun a bearing.
it ran fine so i know all parts are good.
i swaped the mass air flow and throttle body but i still have
to prime it everytime to start it. am i forgetting something?
should i swap out the intake with the injectors?
any help would be sweet. thanks.

Truck ran completely out of fuel.


is there a primer valve on the pump? it would unscrew and then pull out if it had one. take a look around the injection pump. but i belive that uses an electric lift pump it should not need to be primed there may be something else going on here.
