SOURCE: I have a VW diesel Rabbit pick-up,ran motor out of

I have run my VW diesels out of fuel and there are several ways that you can fix this.

1) fill the fuel tank and crank the engine until it starts. Do not crank for more than 20 seconds or so to prevent damage to the starter. You may need to run the glow plugs and crank the engine again if it does not start the first time.

2) pull start the car. Put the car in second gear and have someone tow you. Let out the clutch and turn on the key so that the glow plugs glow. This is also a good way to start your vehicle if it is cold out.

3)Fill the fuel filter with fuel (there is a screw on the top that can be removed and you can fill the fuel filter with fuel to help it start faster.

The 1.5 and 1.6 diesels are not very hard to get going after you run out of fuel.

Where is fuel pump relay on my vw rabbit


You didn't mention what engine you have. The location I am showing you in the picture below (Red arrow/relay 1) is the location for the 1.7 & 1.8 liter engine. If you have the turbo or the DSL engine, the location is different. Hope this helps....

Cylinder head torque 1n diesel engine


Hi!

The Toyota Starlet is a fuel efficient compact car that replaced Toyota's Publica model in 1973 and was manufactured through the 1999 model year. The Starlet was sold new in the United States for only four years, from 1981 through the 1984 model year. Originally a rear-wheel drive car, the Starlet transitioned to front-wheel drive in 1984.

The 1981 to 1984 versions of the Starlet that were sold in the U.S. were powered by a 1.3 liter OHV engine with four cylinders and electronic fuel injection. The engine has a 2.95-inch bore and 2.87-inch stroke and produces 58 horsepower at 4,200 rpm. The 1981 and 1982 versions of the engine produced 67 ft-lbs of torque, and the 1983 and 1984 versions produced 74 ft-lbs of torque. The compression ratio is 9.5:1.
Hope that helps!!

It sounds like it could be a problem with the fuel pressure regulator. When the engine is cold, there is a cold start valve that dumps extra fuel to start a cold engine.

NO FUEL GOING TO ENGINE, BUT ENGINE WANTS TO TURN OVER


Hi

Have you flushed out all of the old unleaded fuel from the system and fitted a new fuel filter? Unleaded fuel only lasts for a very short while before going off. You need to flush out the tank and the fuel lines and then put fresh fuel in the tank and fit a new fuel filter or you could be leading yourself on a wild goose chase.

Do you hear the fuel pump running for a second or two when you switch on the ignition? If not then you need to check the fuel pump positive terminal for battery voltage with a volt meter whilst someone switches on the ignition for you, and check the fuel pump negative terminal to ensure it is properly earthed.

If you have a live and an earth at the pump but the pump still isn't running then you need to renew the fuel pump.

If these suggestions don't solve your problem then I'll need to know what size engine is in the car before I advise you further.

Regards

Geordie
