I have the same problem and have trouble codes 35 and 36. I found out that there is a computer module that needs replaced as it sits low in a valley and gets hot and seperates. I am reseaching about the a/m fix that installs the new module away from heat.

SOURCE: Difficult starting in warm weather

Check the vacuum hose attached to the fuel pressure regulator under the hood next to your intake pull it off and see if any fuel is present, if there is replace may have to tap hose with your finger to get any fuel out or start vehicle run until hot then shut off and recheck if no fuel present in vacuum line let me know and we can try something else.

May want to look at replacing the wiper circuit board.It is located on the firewall adjacent to the wiper motor and has a some what square black cover with 3 torx screws and wireing harness pluged into the side.We had a truck that every time you washed it the wipers would stay on until it dryed out.You can try removing it and spaying it down with contact cleaner just watch the brease on the two contact tips.Well hope this helps.

Have a 1995 6.5 turbo diesel runs fine until it gets to 180 degrees then it loads up like it is flooding itself out wont run right .already changed pmd that not it

Over heating is common for that model. Leads to cracked heads and other issues. Make sure pump is good, radiator is clean inside and out, check coolant for proper dilution.

Just a thought, the pump has a check vale in it that keeps the fuel from draining back when the engine is off. If the check valve is bad, then the fuel drains back and creates an air pocket that doesn't allow it to pump the fuel, basically it create a vacuum lock in the pump so no fuel can get through it. So, you can't rule out the pump completely just because it stays running. Now I know that I'm just a computer tech here and the 6 years of shop foreman as a auto and diesel mechanic don't count, but it's a thought.

I have a 1999 gmc 3500 6.5litre turbo diesel tow truck.It will not crank.I replaced the cam sensor,injectors,fuel filter,fuel pump and still wont start.

This sounds strongly like a PMD issue which is on the side of the fuel injection pump. Common issue and easily remedied. There are kits in which put the PMD in a different location as to avoid heat saturation. Let me know if you need to find one.

I have a 1994 GMC Sierra 6.5 turbo diesel and sometimes won't start or when running a at any speed will stop. I have changed the glow plug selenoide and the glow plugs and still got the problem. is normal...

First off the glow plugs are not the problem. Diesel's run purely off of compression. The basic principle behind them is compress the gas and and it will "spontaneously" ignite as long an the cylinder is hot. All glow plugs do is provide the initial heat that is needed. Once it is started they shut off. If you turn your engine off for a little while and then crank it back up, the glow plugs won't come back on as long as the engine is still warm. So now onto the actual problem. You have a FSD (Fuel Supply Driver) also known as a PMD (Pump Mounted Driver) that is failing. It tells the fuel injection pump when and where to deliver fuel. When they start going bad you will notice hestitation, to random stalls (usually when hot) to no-start situations. There is a forum I found which goes into much greater detail about it and how to fix it and help prevent it from happening again. CHeck it out. 6 5 NEWBIES START HERE

Truck stalls.. then wont crank but sometimes it will crank and run fine....this is a diesel 6.5L gmc3500

Sounds like you have the common problem with GM 6.5 diesel. The PMD ( pump mounted driver, the black box on side of injection pump is failing when it gets hot, cools down just a bit and restarts. Eventually it will leave you stranded.I would suggest replacing entire pum for warrant purposes, Sorry for bad news but I have seen many of these go bad. GM actually extended the warranty on these pumps to 10 years or 100,000 miles. This was not commonly known, even by dealers. It will be an expensive fix. Good luck. Please rate my answer

1994 GMC Sierra 1500 6.5 diesel runs for awhile then stalls

check your pmd switch. i had mine changed and it runs great. the problem is that it gets too hot and burns it up. be sure to move the pmd swith on the firewall away from the injection pump.
