Fuel filter OK? If so,I'd have the injector module checked, Had that go bad twice on a '96.

Before changing anything else, I would suggest getting a can of starting fluid and spraying in the air filter. If the car starts then you will know that it is a fuel problem. If it doesn't start then it is going to be an ignition problem. If it is a fuel problem, you should take off the gas cap and listen for the fuel pump to come on for about 3 seconds.If you don't hear the pump then check to make sure that the pump is not getting power. If it is getting power then it could be the fuel pump driver module. If it is getting power then it is the fuel pump.

SOURCE: 6.6 diesel shut down after starting, still cranking strong but won't start.

I would double check to make sure no air was in line. If it still won't crank, has to be pump.

Got a 97 jimmy fuel pump is good filter is good, but still cant get it to run

Then one of your statements must not be true. the fuel pump usually is ran by a relay off the oil pressure switch, so if engine stalls fuel pump turns off. There is relay as well. Follow wiring from pump to relay,
if it only starts when primed, then fuel pump must not be getting power at all, suggesting relay, or fuse.
the fuel pump should be audible when key is turned on, shortly then it turns off.

First thing to try with any diesel that won't start is to do a diesel system bleed. This one should be before the HP fuel rail type so start by bleeding the lift pump, then the fuel filters, then the main injector pump to lines to the injectors and lastly the injectors. Good luck.

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.

Why won't my new fuel pump in my 2002 kia sedona pump even though it's getting juice from the battery

Have you checked the injector rail with a gauge to know for sure the injectors are not getting fuel ?
If the pump is running but not pumping fuel I would think it is a clogged filter or screen in the tank.

97 chevy blazer w/ 4.3 won't start unless i pour full directly into it....what is causing this. was driving and it just stalled ...fires but won't turn over completely

if you can put fuel in throttle body and it runs. then it is not getting any fuel. check your fuel pump fuse and the relay, if ok, then you may have a bad fuel pump or a plugged up fuel filter. check filter and fuses first. good-day !!

1996 ford contour 4 cylinder- I ran out of gas and I went and put some more but car dose not start anymore. I replaced the fuel filter and that did not solve the issue, yes the fuel pump is working. What...

Try turning the key on,for 2 seconds,then off,for 2 seconds.Over and over,about 10 times,if this does not work,then the fuel pump is bad.Turning the key on ,and off,will prime the fuel system,and the try and start the vehicle.

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?

This system should be self priming, however if it did run out of fuel, I highly recommend changing the filters.After doing so have an assistant turn key to run as you listen for fuel lift pump running,(under drivers side floor attached to frame, one of the fuel filters is part of pump,the other filter is on top of engine) Could have hurt pump by running dry. They are notorious for hard start after filter change and/or out of fuel.Hope this helps.
