There is a bleeder screw on top of the fuel filter base . Loosen screw an crank till fuel comes out , close screw, crank to start engine . Do not crank more than 20 seconds at a time , let starter cool for 3 minutes each time.

The only thing that keeps a diesel engine from running.. OTHER THAN A MECHANACAL PROBLEM.. is lack of fuel. Since it starts when you spray starting spray the engine probably does not have a mechanical problem 1. does the fuel solenoid open when you energize it?, is the fuel filter clogged?, is the lift pump working? Is there fuel in the tank? IF YOU HAVE RUN OUT OF FUEL YOU WILL NEED TO BLEED THE AIR OUT OF THE FUEL SYSTEM.

SYSTEM WONT BLEED


diesel engines high pressure pumps not suppose run dry.diesel fuel keep high pressure pump cool and lubricated.problem could be fuel pressure regulator in the fuel filter water separator housing.replace fuel filter see if it helps problem could be fuel pressure regulator in fuel filter housing, the fuel pressure regulator has a air bleed orifice that allows vent to the fuel tank.make sure fuel pump fuse okay pump getting power. i would let garage or dealership check it out if all fails because your diesel engine fuel timing is pcm controlled if let fuel system go dry you probably have to have fuel injection timing reset or could have damage high pressure pump letting it run dry i hope thats not the case because high pressure pump not cheap part i hope it not that.

My 1984 toyota corolla ran out of gas now it wont idle


Quick explanation of your fuel system:

An automotive fuel system consists of everything between the fuel tank and the carburetor or fuel injection unit. This includes the tank itself, all the lines, one or more fuel filters, a fuel pump (mechanical, electric, or both), and the carburetor or fuel injection unit.
With the exception of the carburetor or fuel injection unit, the fuel system is quite simple in operation. Fuel is drawn or pumped from the tank through the fuel line by the fuel pump, which forces it through the fuel filter, and from there to the carburetor/injection unit where it is distributed to the cylinders.

So with that info...try first to clean your spark plugs.
Next, replace your fuel filter.
After that, depending on a carburetor/fuel injection, try an additive that cleans the injectors. For the carburetor, try a half of can of what is called "Seafoam". It comes in a metal can available everywhere, including Walmart. It is worth the $6-8 and also will "dry" out your fuel from water. Very good product.

After that, get back to us and let us know how your Toyota is running.

Feul in tank, But not getting to carb


tap on the side of the carb near the float that should free the float up if its stuck but the pump could be bad as fuel is the coolant for the pump so if it goes dry it gets overheated

FORD DIESEL WILL NOT START


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.

F350 no start


I have a feeling you got a wholed of unleaded fuel or bad fuel
I drive a diesel box truck the station I always took it to the fuelman put unleaded in the diesal tanks and the truck just died it had to have the gas tank completed drained and cleaned out but also ask yourself how many miles are on it and when was last tune up and if you live in a cold climate I recommend a heater block plug
