SOURCE: injectors

Injectors from the same ccm engine are most probably sounds same but to be on the safe side check not only the shape but code on the top of injector too. Because they are piezo effect injectors and set by the manufacture for a specific pressure for specific engine codes.

When you open up the diesel injector lines (take injectors out) you let air into the system and the diesel cannot make its way past it. You have to bleed the lines by opening the injector lines at the injector by a half turn. (Always be careful with diesel injector systems, it is under enough force to shoot a stream right into and under your skin causing nasty results) Cover the injectors with a towel and turn the car over until diesel is leaking out of each line. (Keep away from injectors while turning it over!) After diesel is seen coming from injector lines, retighten injector lines and try starting.

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.

We have recentley bought a 6.5 t/diesel 1998 holden surburban, having trouble with it starting, wind and wind but no fire, sometimes it starts beautifully??? The other problem is it has started turning...

Before you start replacing injectors, replace the air and fuel filters. These are critical in a diesel motor. Also check the fuel return line to make sure its not blocked. You should also get yourself a copy of Haynes Diesel Engine Repai Manual, part #10330. It costs about $20 Canadian. It is worth it's weight in gold for a new diesel owner and has an excellent diagnosis and repair section that can walk you through most problems. Another place to check with would be The Diesel Page. It's a web site/blog/forum dedicated to GM 6.2 and 6.5 diesels.
I would be more inclined to suspect the fuel pump as your problem, myself. If you can't get the Haynes book in Australia comment back and we may be able to get 1 shipped out to you.
Hope this helps.

Engine starts but stops immediately. I have replaced fuel filters still same problem. Could it be fuel pressure regulator

If your engine is gas, not diesel, then it sounds as though your main injector is failing. It runs for a few seconds after starting because the cold start injector has just fed fuel whereas the run injector is "supposed" to take over, and doesn't.If your engine is diesel you may need to clean your glowplugs and have the injector timing checked. Thank you, Dana

Driving down the road and staled

Is the car diesel or petrol?

If a diesel, you might check the diesel pump drive belt (at the right side of engine when looking at the engine from front of car). It's possible the teeth on the belt have stripped and put the pump timing out. An alternative may be a "stop solenoid" failure. The solenoid stops diesel getting to the injectors when the "ignition" is turned off and "stalls" the engine.

I don't know if the injector pump on a petrol engine has a similar setup as a diesel but it might be worth checking.
