Not getting fuel out of injector pump

First look on the base on the engine the plunger block where the hoses goes from to the nozzles injectors are on .
Thats a little job to do remember by control your plungers
The high pressure line pump operates at a fixed stroke. The fuel flow control takes place by the twisting of the plungers. This twisting is provided by the control rod, which is indirectly linked to the accelerator pedal.
So when the accelerator pedal is operated, the plungers are rotated, and the fuel delivery settled there can also be the problem who knows. there are several possibilities but i would say do ot forget to give acceleration to look for diesel disconnect the hexnuts of the hoses start the engine and stairs a moment the accelerator to control if there is coming out diesel then know it for shure that the plungers are not worn or constipated or have other problem.

Got 2003 turbo diesel ford transit auto trans, I replaced both batteries n now when I go to start the van the Reds turn on n nothing, gear selector is no longer registerin n not a single click is made

If the dash lights do not come on:

The most common cause of this is loose battery connections. The battery is located underneath the driver's seat. Turn the ignition to the on position and slide the driver's seat forward. The battery is concealed with a plastic flap, remove the flap. Check the tightness of the two terminals while looking at the dash, if the dash lights up, then you know what the problem was. ยท

If the dash lights are coming on and the vehicle makes no attempt to start:

The most common cause is the starter motor terminals. These can overheat and fuse. This type failure is very sudden and shows no warning signs. The only cure is a replacement starter motor.

1981 mitsubishi sigma won't turn off

It was a very common problem on carbureted cars, so common it was given a name: dieseling. You know, as how a diesel engine will run without spark plugs. You shut a hot engine off, there is still a little gas in the intake, and maybe the carburetor still drips a few drops down the throat. The crankshaft is still turning, so gas still gets into the hot combustion chambers, so hot it can still ignite the remaining gas, and you have "dieseling".
To rectify it, manufacturers years ago began putting an electrical solenoid in the carb's main fuel passage to stop fuel flow as soon as engine is shut off. They called this a fuel cut solenoid, fuel shut off solenoid, idle stop solenoid, or an anti-dieseling solenoid. I know datsuns had this solenoid at least as far back as the early '70's. Works very simply: turn the key on and solenoid was energized, retracting a plunger pin in the fuel passage. Turn key off and solenoid gets no power, so a spring inside the solenoid pushed the plunger back into the fuel passage. It almost entirely eliminated the problem, as long as the carburetor was adjusted correctly.
Actually, I think your '81 should or might have this fuel cut solenoid on the carburetor, and if so it may be inoperative and needs replacing. Not very expensive, and easy to replace- just screws out. Some had only a single wire connector, and some had two wires to them. It would probably be the only electrical to the carb, other than any electrical going to an electric choke, if so equipped.
Happy motoring with the old mits, Sarah. I still have an old Datsun pick-up, and now an '87 Sentra, carbureted unfortunately, lol.

Ford sport trac 2003 brake lights are not working and we checked to fuses and changed the lights.

I know this solution will sound weird but put the steering wheel at it's highest position (untilt) and try it..if they come on it's the a wiring harness in the steering column.

I am actually having the same issue... I found out that it is a small motor that controls the air flow of the rear ventilation system. It moves a flap to send air to the top or bottom vents, according to the desired settings in the dashboard. I am now trying to purchase this small motor online, but I have not been able to find its technical name.

Loss of clutch

Call the Fiat dealer and get the parts department. Tell them whats happening and ask if they offer a stronger plunger. If they dont, call a high performance auto parts store and ask if they have a racing clutch master cylinder. If they do, go look at it and see if its the same plastic plunger. It should be a heavy duty plunger.
