This could be a fuel pump problem that needs replacing. you will have to check to see if the fuel pump is working. depending how movable you are you might be able to do the job, it will need tools to check. you can try to see if you hear the fuel pump running while someone tries to start the car while you listen at the fuel tank fill hose(gas cap). if you don`t you can try hitting the fuel tank bottom and see if it starts to work. if so then the pump is bad.

1995 international flat six diesel 466 wont run changed fuel filter losend lines bleed out air wont run squirt eathier starts dies

Make sure you pre fill the filters with clean fuel. Locate the hand primer usually near the fuel lift pump. Unscrew the top till it pops up. Pump repeatedly until it gets hard to pump. You can crack the injector lines while pumping till fuel comes out or have someone crank the engine with the starter while you continue to pump the hand primer. Make sure after it's running the pump is pushed all the way down and tightened back up

2010 nissan patrol 3ltr turbo diesel doesnt like to start on a really hot days. Any common problems that are known about???

I have seen many issues with the fuel primer pumps. if this id a direct inject motor then its the plunger on top of the fuel filter, if its a common rail engine then its a plunger in the fuel line under the fuel filter.
when temps are hotter then the fuel will expand more and can draw air back in through the primer pump when contracts again. best way to check this is to fit a clear hose between the outlet of the fuel filter and the engine, then drive the vehicle to get the fuel into normal flow then park it in the sun and leave it. later on check the clear hose, if there is no fuel in it then air is entering the fuel line somewhere, most likely from the primer pump, if its a hose then a fuel leak will been seen.

How do you bleed the diesel fuel filter on a 1986 Toyota diesel Land Crusier?

I don't know a lot about these trucks but I can tell you that somewhere between the spin-on fuel filter and the I.P. (injection pump) is a 1.5" dia X 4" long steel primer. Just under the top of it is a spring. You will need to loosen or open the "Fuel supply line", at the I.P. (going from the filter, to the pump) and manually pump the fuel primer. Continue pumping the fuel primer until diesel flow from the opening. Quickly close off the drain-port or fuel-line, pump the primer a few more times (to increase line pressure and try to start your vehicle. After it starts, check for leaks. Let me know if I can help anymore. Good luck.

I have a 90 suburban that will only crank over when we pour gas into the throttle body, but it will stay running. We have replaced the fuel pump, the distributor, and the ECM unit. We notice that there is...

well there is no fuel pump primer that i know of. When you turn the key you should hear the pump
come on. If you do then you should hear a medium high pitch sound. If you hear something other than that you got a block in your line. O one there thing you can try if you hear the pump\primer come on is take the fuel line off that is suppling the intake and see if your getting fuel from the tank
to your engine. If you don't then you need to blow out your line and filter with a air compresser, but do it carefuly. You dont want to mess up your filter or your lines ok. I hope this works for you.

Even though your vehicle starts and runs but dies, Your fuel pressure doesnt seem to be pushing enough pressure. It could be a faulty fuel pressure regulator.

I have replaced fuel filter in range rover and i cannot get air out of diesel fuel? and it now not starting straight away

When you replaced the fuel filter, was it half empty of fuel ? if it was , then its the fuel lift pump thats faulty. Rotate the engine till the cam allows a full stroke of the fuel lift pump primer handle, check the amount of movement of the primer handle and feel of it, that is , can you feel it pulling fuel. If the movemnt is small, then you need to change the pump.
