check for air in the system . Bleed out at all bleed screws . crack the injector lines at the injectors and continue cranking until diesel drips from the nut. tighten and continue cranking. Check for fast crank speed and glo-plug operation

Landcruiser early 80 turbo diesel wont start

Presuming it is swinging (starter turning engine) and the glow plugs are working well and diesel is clean, the other alternatives are a drop in fuel pressure through the injectors which is necessary to ignite the diesel, or engine compression. If the compression is too low the diesel will not ignite. Test the injectors and compression across al cylinders. Being a turbo the compression si already lowered and the slightest drop will have an effect. Happy hunting.

Hi i have an Volvo 2001 s60 d5 turbo, i purchased it about 6 months and in board computer was showing in italian (motore necesita assist) but it was running well and it was starting very nice no sound no...

I would suggest trying to purge the air from the fuel lines by loosening the fuel lines at the injectors (if possible) and cranking the engine for a moment or two, then tightening the lines, try to start the car, if it starts, loosen the injector fuel lines again while it's running, one injector at a time, to purge any remaining air. I hope this helps, and good luck.

Cranks but won't start

slacken off the injector pipes on the injector and see if fuel is pumping up first ,because it could be more than one fault .

99 ram diesel wont start

Did you check to see if there is power to the glow plugs if not then that may be the problem and if there is power when you cycle the key not to start but for the plugs to warm up you may have a bad glow plugs.

My Isuzu Trooper 2004 4JX1 turbo just underwent a general engine overhaul. Its cranking but will not start. All electricals are ok. Does the PCM needed to be reset for it to start?

The ECU will be fine with a engine rebuild but the 4JX takes a bit longer to start if all the injector oil paths are empty - can be up to 5 or 6 mins of 20 second cranking bursts.
Also if you rebuilt due to diesel in the oil from bad injectors the control valve for the injector oil pressure may be faulty so it wont start.
