Fuel pump works, new filter, gas is coming out past filter but not getting to the Compression tester. I changed the vacum valve on the gas rail. What next?

The presence of fuel isn't enough.

Fuel must be delivered in sufficient quantity at a sufficient pressure and this can only be checked with a fuel pressure test and a volume delivery test.

What is the causes of excessive exhaust smoke coming plenty and black without stopping.

Bad piston rings are most likely the culprit. This is usually known as having a "blown engine." Though a bad or broken valve could be the culprit as well. Both require extensive work to remedy.

How can I stop a leak that is coming from my 88 chevy P30 truck diesel fuel filter,or where can I find the part?

Is the filter on the firewall? If it is , there is a valve at the bottom of the fuel filter that can come loose. If this is not the problem then the rubbers on the back of the filter are probably bad. Replace filter. Any auto parts store will carry these filters. When you put the new one on ( they just push on ) unplug purple wire on top front of engine. Loosen valve on fuel filter and crank engine in short bursts until fuel comes out of filter. Tighten valve, plug purple wire back in and start engine.
Good luck

The last few days,some light came on shows WATWE in FUEL.

water in fuel,drain the water out of the fuel filter by releasing it through the valve on the bottom of your fuel filter. unscrew the valve on the bottom of primary fuel filter,you have 2 fuel filters. one is primary,one is secondary. you did'nt specify what engine,or what year, but will try to assist you anyway. drain the water out of the primary fuel filter by draining the water out of the primary fuel filter,you will see a pep **** valve under the fuel filter,turn it counterclockwise until you see the fuel coming out, after you drain that fuel filter drain the 2nd one. this will solve your fuel issues for now.but i do suggest you replace those 2 filters. you can prime the filters with transmission fluid in order to restart the engine. i have u.s.m.c. training in heavy equipment,ooooraaahhh.if you know this,,, you'll know #1 we never leave a man behind.wish you the best. thank you for choosing

My 04 F250 diesel truck is loosing power every time I accelarate or go uphill and sometimes lets out a substantial amount of blue smoke from the exhaust. I changed the EGR Valve, and it improved for one...

Check the air filter and check the fuel filter. Most diesels lose power from a dirty air filter and moisture or dirt in the fuel filter. When you remove the fuel filter pour the fuel in a glass jar and let it sit awhile if you see two different fluids in the jar you have water at the bottom and fuel on top and need to replace the fuel filter. I think the EGR valve may have been a coincidence. let me know .
