Question about 1994 Chevrolet Silverado 2500

1 Answer

I have a 1994 Chev half ton with 6.5 turbo diesel, have problems starting, motor turns over, lots of fuel, fuel pump working, has a mind of its own, when it wants to start. Some times a few hours after trying to start it, & its starts,some times not. & in the past when it was running, sometimes it would just shut down, but would start back up, starting problem wouldnt make a difference if motor was hot or cold.

1994 Chevy 3500hd 6.5 turbo diesel starts then stalls. I have to pump the gas pedal a lot before it starts again. Once started, it runs rough. Specially when I step on the pedal.


As there is no connection between the accelerator pedal and the fuel system then pumping the pedal will have no effect.. I would be checking and bleeding the fuel system from the filter to the pump and checking for a leak in the fuel supply system. Hard starting and running rough is an indication of air in the pump and in the lines to the injectors.

1994 chevy 3500 6.9 diesel you drive it acs like running out of fuel half to bleed lines to get air out to start back up


sounds like u got a clogged fuel filter, or you have got a fuel line somewhere that is sucking air in, could be anywhere from the pump back to the tank, if that shows no luck, get a piece of clear hose and put that just before the pump and look for bubbles, the slightest of bubbles will cause it do run rough and stall
failing this and there is no air bubbles i would say your injector pump needs rebuilding but this is rather unlikely unless u have got a fair few miles on it


hope this helps

I was driveing down the road an my truckwhich is a 1999 dodge ram3/4 ton with the cummins turbo in it started spitting an spuddering an then died. the codes from a cheap scan tool showed p0216,p1690 and...


The p1690 is the transfer pump code I believe. Unfortunately the engine will run without a good transfer pump for awhile. Eventually the main injection pump will fail due to lack of fuel pressure. The main injection pump requires 6 psi minimum. When the main pump fails and this is the unfortunate part it's trash. It is possible you just lost enough fuel psi that it died and a 160 dollar lift pump will fix you up. I would suggest a fuel psi gauge on all 98 and a half through 2002 dodge diesels. A 80 dollar gauge can save you about 1800 dollars and that 1800 is if you do it yourself.

1994 chev truck 6.5 turbo diesel with long hard start ,idles good and smooth,rev it up and it craps out and smokes a heavey fuel cloud, unplug optical sensor and engine runs better but still has a stumble...


There is a cold start solonoid in the injection pump on the 92&93's. this will cause a hard start, and run poorly till warms up. It does something with the presure in pump which advances it.

Diesle engine quits after starting. 6.5 turbo chev


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.

(TOYOTA SURF 1990 TURBO DIESEL) No diesel coming out of fuel pump


If it has glow plugs or an intake heater you will need to disable the circuit. Then you can use a small amount of ether to spray into the air cleaner.!!! If you spray too much and/or Dont disable the circuits you can damage the motor!!! When you spray the ether, if the engine starts and stalls then its not getting fuel. This could be related to the fuel pump, injection pump, the fuel system loosing its prime(fuel line leak), fuel shut-off valve or solenoid. If it doesn't start then it could be related to your timing, valves or maybe compression.

Motor not running


The problem was a electronic box which controls the multi valve system on the fuel pump not the ERPS. The box had lost it's earth contact. These motors don't have a cut off solenoid like older diesels, a lot of trial and error to find.
Now a happy fellow.
