SOURCE: merc 190e fuel injection problem

If the fuel gets to the distributor but no fuel comes out of the distributor if the airflow disk pushed into the air/fuel mixure body, i suggest you check the electro-hydralic-actuator
53703cc.jpg Its the black box (picture thanks to elproboscis from ebay america) as it controles the flow to the pluger body inside the centre of the distributor and goes from the plunger direct to the 4 outlines.

SOURCE: no pulsating power on the

you need to see if your getting fuel up to the injectors maybe the fuel pumps bad or a relay.

SOURCE: air in fuel line between fuel filter and injection

Hi, before the pump it is a loose connection or maybe a pin hole in the pipe, check all the connections and pipes for seepage, after the pump it will be a leak, i knowit sounds the same but after the pump the fuel is under pressure. It would appear that your system drawing air rather than forcing air in. daveg

Reconditioned my k9k motor,diesel,does not want to start,just swings


Swings is a word I have not heard applied to engines since the days of the cranking handle. I assume you mean the engine cranks but will not start?

I am not familiar with your particular engine but it is sometimes problematic starting a freshly assembled engine that has been partly reconditioned. Fully reconditioned engines that have been built rather than merely assembled usually present few problems because everything is new and correctly adjusted.
The word "reconditioned" means many different things to different people...

A newly-built engine is often down on compression and a diesel needs good compression. It also needs a good cranking speed. If the engine is an indirect injection engine it is necessary to have an efficient set of heater plugs or to provide copious amounts of hot air into the intake. This helps with direct injection types but isn't absolutely necessary. Careful manipulation of an ether spray at the right time can be great help when starting the latter type of engine for the first time.

By far the biggest problem is bleeding the fuel system. Even when a good supply of air-free fuel is reaching the injectors it can take a considerable amount of cranking before a reliable injection is achieved and the engine begins to fire. This time is shorter with common-rail diesels and a great deal longer when fitted with a hydraulically governed DPA type injection pump.

A starter motor should not be operated for more than 10 seconds and then rested for around 10 seconds. This avoids over-taxing the starter and the battery and connections...
If it really won't start I suggest you revisit the valve clearances, valve and fuel timing and compressions.

In the case of hydraulic valve lifters, I prefer to fit them unprimed and find them a lot less trouble that way. If I am refitting used valve lifters I ensure they are emptied before reassembly to avoid one or more of them holding a valve from it's seat and reducing compression. Another possible trouble is tappet-jacking. With new bearings and oil pump the oil pressure can be high even at cranking speeds. If the valve springs are weak the oil pressure can cause the hydraulic lifters to open the valves a little.

How do you bleed a diesel pump jeep Cherokee turbo diesel 3.1 5 cylinder 2001


we dont have this engine here, USA.
but i have the WG jeep book,
starting page 12 , chapter 14


FUEL INJECTION PUMP BLEEDING
(1) If the fuel injection pump has been replaced,
air should be bled at the overflow valve before
attempting to start engine.
(a) Loosen the overflow valve (Fig. 18) at the
rear of the injection pump.
(b) Place a towel below the valve.
WARNING: WHEN CRANKING THE ENGINE TO
BLEED AIR FROM THE INJECTION PUMP, THE
ENGINE MAY START. PLACE THE TRANSMISSION
IN NEUTRAL OR PARK AND SET PARKING BRAKE
BEFORE ENGAGING THE STARTER MOTOR.
CAUTION: Do not engage the starter motor for
more than 30 seconds at a time. Allow 2 minutes
between cranking intervals.
(2) Crank the engine for 30 seconds at a time to
allow air trapped in the injection pump to vent out
the fuel injector drain tubes. Continue this procedure
until the engine starts. Observe the previous WARNING
and CAUTION.
(3) Tighten overflow valve.
HIGH-PRESSURE FUEL LINE BLEEDING
WARNING: THE INJECTION PUMP SUPPLIES HIGH-
-PRESSURE FUEL OF APPROXIMATELY 45,000 KPA
(6,526 PSI) TO EACH INDIVIDUAL INJECTOR
THROUGH THE HIGH-PRESSURE LINES. FUEL
UNDER THIS AMOUNT OF PRESSURE CAN PENETRATE
THE SKIN AND CAUSE PERSONAL INJURY.
WEAR SAFETY GOGGLES AND ADEQUATE PROTECTIVE
CLOTHING AND AVOID CONTACT WITH
FUEL SPRAY WHEN BLEEDING HIGH-PRESSURE
FUEL LINES.
WARNING: DO NOT BLEED AIR FROM THE FUEL
SYSTEM OF A HOT ENGINE. DO NOT ALLOW FUEL
TO SPRAY ONTO THE EXHAUST MANIFOLD WHEN
BLEEDING AIR FROM THE FUEL SYSTEM.
Bleed air from one injector at time.
(1) Loosen the high-pressure fuel line fitting at
the injector (Fig. 19).
(2) Crank the engine until all air has been bled
from the line. Do not operate the starter motor
for longer than 30 seconds. Wait 2 minutes
between cranking intervals.
(3) Start the engine and bleed one injector at a
time until the engine runs smoothly.

2008 Jeep Grand Cherokee 3.0 Mercedes CRD will not start


does it start and run for 3 seconds on test fuel

yes, engine ok, EFI bad.

no, bad engine, engine must be good to run.

EFI cant run bad engines..

so compression at spec......????



why beat the EFI to death,

all engines run on test fuel.

with gas engines, takes spark and good engine

on diesel, takes only good engine. simple huh (and some air)



for test fuel try diesel in a spray bottle into the injection port.

google this

or use youtube on test fuel on any diesel car. or truck



this is called basics....... basic basics.

1: good engine, and pumps air ok. (must breath)

2: good fuel.

3: test fuel works now. if not check above.

My isuzu 4hf1 sudenly stop while giving way to another vehicle, with the gear position in neutral and idle rpm.what is the proper trouble shooting,ty


i cant understand your symptoms. but...
no year car stated or country.
the engine is direct injection engine of 4.33L capacity.
diesel injected..
do not post about other cars and all that, (giving way)
tell what you do and car did. only.
please.
your in neutral for some reason, and something happened what.?
my wild guess is engine stalled. (what trans, stick or auto?)
does not revolve,
what doesnt the starter or the engine.?
the starter motor cranks fast (huge current) and spins 300RPM
and spins the engine ,fast, and the engine starts.
the PCM (injection brain) does fueling.

I will do, cranks ok but dont start.
  1. check all fuses first.
  2. check for clean fuel filter.
  3. check for PCM errors. (diagnostic scans)
  4. Check that glow plugs work.
  5. test using TEST fuel (spray) did it start now.? or just for 3 seconds.?


if the engine fails to crank over (that mean engine crank shaft spins)
that that is a whole other, set of tests, (jumper cable starts are next)

I have a 91 f350 7.3 liter idi. It will not start


cranks ok , and fast?
after checking all fuses. (the FSM shows correct fuse)

International Harvester IDI (from Indirect Injection) engine is a 4-stroke 8-cylinder Diesel engine used in International Harvester trucks,
like all diesels check fuel filters first. (service)
then make sure glow plugs work. (fsm covers this)
then scan it EFI for DTC errors. got errors?
direct injection uses EFI.

IF DIY, you need the book, I promise.....
its not simple like old diesels were.

2 things cause these type of problem both are related to air is getting into injection system #1 loose or pin holes in hoses from fuel tank to injection pump #2 fuel shut off solenoid is fully seating allow drain back. back car up driveway or place rear tires on some ramps with a near full tank this should keep fuel in injection system see if it starts and runs better this way if so then test for these problems

05 ford f-650 with 6.0L deseil, will not start. checked glow plugs, fuel, all it does is crank, and no start. help


if the engine will crank and not start, look at the exhaust while the engine is cranking. if you do not see black smoke from the exhaust pipe the engine is not getting fuel. this would be an issue with the injection pump. if there is smoke the no start is most likey a compression problem. diesel requires heat and compression to fire.

6.2 diesel will not bleed diesel


Make sure all lines are light when turning engine over.While turning engine over loosen the a line closes to pump or the fuel filter.You should get some fuel.Then continue on all lines working farther away.

Ran out of diesel 1.9 TDi 74kw. have refuelled and cranked engine for 15mins and still it won't start. there is fuel from tank to filter, to pump and return flow.


This is very important for Audi 1.9 TDI engine: IT IS FORBIDDEN TO RUN WITHOUT DIESEL FUEL IN RESERVOIR !!!
This type of engine is equipped with pump-nozzle injectors which develop up to 2050 bar injection pressure !
Remove the fuel filter, fill up with diesel fuel and put in place. After that try to start the engine with accelerator pedal to the floor. Heed of electric starter motor temperature and battery status! After 40 - 50 sec. of start attempting wait for 1 - 2 minutes for battery and electric starter motor revival. After few starting attemptions the engine must start.
