From your discription of your problem, lack of fuel to the injectors is your primary problem. You need to first check for air leaks from your fuel tank to the pump. After you have corrected any problems found (no matter how small) check you pump to be sure it is pumping. remove it and put a finger over the suction port and depress the pump actuator arm and you should feel positive suction. If not, replace your fuel pump. If at this point all is good, check for leaks between the pump and primary fuel filter and so on to the injector pump. If all is good to that point you need to bleed each injector at the cylinders. crack the nut at the block and have someone turn the motor over with the starter until fuel and no air bubbles come out around the nut and while engine is still spinning, tighten the nut securely back to the engine block. do this with all injector lines and you should be running when the last line is bled!
good luck

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.

I have a 2006 d4d toyota landcruiser that wont start . it has been lyning up for two years now . when u try to start it with key it wil try to run for a spilt second but just cut out . we tryed to pull...

the D4D ENGINE on Toyota Landcruiser has electronic injectors common rail engine and there is the possibility for gummed injectors and also but quality of diesel fuel in tank. Change the fuel and filter,and also a fuel treatment additive to be use as soon as started. and remember for good also treatment with cleaning use 250ml 2-stroke oil in a tank full of fuel and carry on with this for a month filling. Tank full to empty position and then use 2-stroke every time

Landcruiser colorado vx auto diesel power loss will hardly move off hardly any response from accelarator will eventually get to about 70mph orange engine warning light on turbo ok

I would start out by looking to see what the color of the smoke is. If it is real black your not getting enough air. Remove the air filter and see if it goes away. If so just change the air filter. If the color is white, then your not getting enough fuel. Start by changing the fuel filter. If neither works you need to start looking into pumps and injectors. I would take it to a mechanic at this point. Good luck.
