Well first it could be your fuel filter. or fuel pump but if you can hear your pump turn on it wouldnt be that. but you should try bleeding the fuel system.

If your filter hasn't been changed recently then by all means do itand see if that helps. I change mine twice a year, spring and fall. You are probably right about the fuel pump but your best bet would be to pick up a copy of Haynes Diesel Engine Repair Manual, part #10330 first. It has an excellent diagnostic and repair section as well as testing procedures and repairs for these engines. It costs about $20 and could save you some money. Hope this helps.

Idle fine, then run ok for few minutes, then cant go over 15 mph,new filter, new supply pump, suspect turbo or injector pump


Hi , you probably have water that's went from the tank to the pump. DIESEL PUMP. The worst thing that you can do is let your fuel go way down low and some water is taken in with fuel + water . The fuel pump is a mechanical pump with moving parts and you can't let water in . Certain pumps ,diesel pumps have a latch valve and you don't want water to sit for any length of time in the surrounding wall of the valve as it will rust this may cause the valve to stick then your car may go to rev excessive sometimes high revs , i mean screaming rev's. Please get the pump checked.

I have problems sometimes when I start the 2005 6.6 turbo diesel truck it will just stall out then wont restart unless I pump the top of the fuel filter.


not sure on the model but some diesel have a high and low pressure fuel pump, once could be bad. low pressure push fuel from the tank to the high pressure, the high pressure pushing the fuel into the engine. or a rubber fuel line is bad letting are into the fuel system. look for heavy cracked rubber hoses

2001 Rodeo 2.8 Turbo Diesel running perfectly one day won't run the next. Seems to be after it sits for a couple of days. Any suggestions?


Hi Peter, If the vehicle turns on the starter all the time, and sometimes starts and other times fails, check the fuel filter for leakage. Sometimes air gets into the fuel system. When it gives problems, open the bonnet (hood) and have someone pump the pump on top of the filter housing. If it feels soft when beginning to pump, I would suspect either a leakage on the fuel line or the filter housing. If you need to replace the housing and filter, remember to fill the replacement filter with clean diesel fuel first. the glow plugs can also cause problems if one or more have burned out. Regards John

There is a possibility that your fuel transfer pump has quit and fuel is getting to your engine by gravity only. Have your tranfer pump flow rate tested. Also renew your primary fuel filter.
