Why am I having fuel issues with a 97' f-250 7.3 powerstroke, put new sensors on everything, new fuel lift pump, glow plugs,filter, new tank filter, cleaned all the lines from tank to the fuel bowl, s


If this situation occurs after a period of time then check the tank vent correctly at the vent valve on top of the tank. If it occurs reasonably quickly then check the fuel return lines from the injectors to the tank for obstruction ,kinks ,squashed etc preventing the fuel free access to the tank. check the pressure regulator to the pump is holding sufficient pressure to maintain pressure to the pumpin the pump

Engine cut out


Sounds like you may have fuel filter problem. you may want to check the pump and filters located in or near the fuel tank.
Go directly to the source ( Fuel Tank, Pump, Filters, Fuel Pressure Regulator and Injectors )
You may have water or grit in the fuel
Hope this helps

1999 tahoe while driving it stalls we have to start it with starting fluid


Sounds like a fuel pump issue. Do you run the fuel tank below 1/3 of tank? That CAN overheat the pump if there's not enough fuel to cool the pump. It may be the fuel regulator, filter, or pump. There have been some noted issues with insufficient grounding of the fuel pump wiring as well as some pumps that just don't live long. If you have access to a fuel pressure gauge, check to make sure you have over 60 pounds of fuel pressure at the fuel rail under the hood.
As the fuel pump is submersed in the fuel tank, enough fuel to cover the pump is needed to adequately cool the pump. Running the tank low will eventually cause failure of the pump.

Repacing fuel filter on 1996 intrepid


1) Relieve the fuel system pressure by first removing the fuel pump relay from the Power Distribution Center. Then, start the engine and let it to run until it stalls. Try starting it again and allow it to run until it stalls. Continue restarting the engine until the car will no longer start. Turn off the ignition.
2) Disconnect one electrical connector from an injector. Use an alligator clip to connect an end of a jumper wire to either injector terminal. Connect the other end of the jumper wire to the positive side of the battery. Then, connect an end of a second jumper wire to the other injector terminal. Very briefly touch the other end of the jumper wire to a ground.
3) Locate the fuel filter, which is part of the fuel pressure regulator mounted on the fuel pump module. Disconnect the negative battery cable, then lower the fuel tank. Disconnect the fuel lines from the filter.
4) Remove the fuel line from the pressure regulator. Remove the filter/regulator by pushing in on the locking tab on the filter as you turn the regulator to unlock it. Then, pull it straight up.
5) Push the new fuel filter into the fuel pump module. Turn to lock it in place. Connect the fuel lines, and then you can reinstall the fuel tank. Check for leaks when you start the engine on your Dodge Intrepid.

Transit pump code p0216 how can i fix this


P0216 DTC - Injection Timing Control Circuit Malfunction and this means the diesel fuel injection pump has a timing failure. This could be that the injection pump timing needs adjusted OR the failure is internal to the injection pump and therefore non-adjustable.

NOTE: If your vehicle is a Dodge Ram with Cummins engine then be aware that fuel delivery problems frequently cause this code. Prolonged fuel delivery problems can cause injection pump failure!

Symptoms of a P0216 DTC may include:
Low power
Crank, but no start
Hard start
Displays an intermittent stumble or miss
Engine may start and then stall
Engine may appear to drive fine but surge at idle


The most frequent cause of this code is a bad injection pump due to poor fuel delivery. Fuel delivery problems could be:
A plugged diesel fuel filter
An in-tank blockage
Air in the fuel due to a cracked in-tank fuel ine above the fuel level
Bad transfer (lift) pump
Injection pump out of time


Possible Solutions: First, simply check if your injection pump timing is adjustable. If so, check the timing and adjust if necessary.

If you think that you may have a fuel delivery problem, then check the lift pump operation. On Dodge Ram with the Cummins engine, the lift pump should produce about 45 oz of diesel in 25 seconds of operation. This can be performed by disconnecting the fuel hose from the injection pump and pumping the fuel into an approved container. Bump the engine over but do not start it. Then the lift pump will operate for 25 seconds. If the fuel is aerated, then check/repair fuel line and recheck.

With the fuel hose connected the fuel pressure should be 10psi. If the fuel delivery tests fail, replace the diesel fuel filter and recheck.

If it still fails then verify there are no restrictions in the fuel tank

Then replace the lift (transfer) pump. IT SHOULD BE NOTED that if this code surfaced after a routine fuel filter replacement or if you have any of the above symptoms after routine fuel filter replacement, then suspect the fuel transfer pump. This occurs because even a weak transfer pump can still provide enough fuel for the engine to run. But when the fuel system\'s prime is lost due to fuel filter replacement, it may not restart again without fixing the fuel delivery problem.

If you found your injection pump to be bad, the lift pump should be checked for operation to protect the new injection pump. This is because weak or low output from lift pump are common cause of injection pump failure. There are some aftermarket kits that can be purchased to warn the operator when the fuel pressure/volume drops to level that could damage the injection pump.

Hope this helps (remember to rating this free answer and leave a testimonial comments).

1998 sometimes has trouble starting. Occasionally it will stall out when I start it and will take a while to start but when it does it runs fine and never have an issue it has new fuel lines, tank, and...


Hi Mat, If the vehicle has fuel injection, try replacing the fuel pressure regulator. I hope that when replacing the fuel lines the filter was also replaced. make it a habit to use genuine replacement parts when replacing filters, as some we have on the market these days have a tendency to collapse when under pressure and thereby block the system. It would seem that your vehicle has a fuel delivery problem or work required on the throttle by pass system in the throttle body of the injection system. Regards Johngee10

signs of a bad fuel pressure regulator. the vehicle runs rough, the engine will not start usually in the mornings. many times engine starts but stalls shortly after starting. a bad regulator can result in fouled plugs. black soot on plugs, blake smoke from tailpipe, running rough, stalling. you could have residue in fuel tank and need to change fuel filter again. have a very good day !!

You have a lot to check. Start by scanning the engine codes. There's good chance it will tell you where to look next.
The symptoms sound like fuel delivery (assuming the engine runs well when it runs). Put a fuel pressure gage on the car and verify that you are getting a constant and good pressure. Could be fuel pump, blocked lines, bad fuel regulator, or an intermittent electrical problem. I had a situation like this where the car would run fine and then just cutout or not start. Turned out to be a loose connection to the fuel pump. Easy fix. Very hard to find.
