Question about 1998 Chevrolet K3500

2 Answers

I have a 1998 chevrolet 3500 with a 6.5 diesel. When engine is cold it starts fine, if engine has not been shut off long it starts fine, but if it cools about a hour it cranks for a long time before it starts. I had starter checked and changed glow plugs. Do you have any advice.

1995 Tahoe will not start till i spay carb cleaner then will run fine


Is the vehicle diesel? If so you have a heater plug problem, or low compression, compressed air in the cylinder is not hot enough to cause ignition of the diesel in a cold start situation. Carb cleaner is more volatile than diesel and explodes easier, so the vehicle starts. Heat retained by the engine allows it to start, then when it has gone completely cold, you have the same problem, Check operation of the glow plugs and the engine compression (worn engine)

Did you change the fuel filter or bleed the injector lines? You need to get that gas out of the system if you haven't already. Once the filter is changed and filled with diesel I would loosen the injector lines and crank the engine until the gas is cleared out of the lines. Tighten the lines and see what happens.

sluggish/cold start "problems"with any VW group product can be put down,in a lot of cases,to dirty injector nozzles,use redexe/wynns injector cleaner at 1 can to 1/2 tank fuel and you will feel a difference.as for the oil,VW group,use 10/40 semi synthetic in ALL their engines.(except w12 0/40)using a thin oil would pass the rings/valve guides and cause a carbon buildup inside the chamber......try it and see.....

Dodge 3500 diesel lift pump


When the key is turned to the start position, the pump should run for about 20 seconds. Do this 3 or 4 times to prime the pump.

If it still doesn't start, the bad lift pump may have damaged the injection pump. Crack a fuel line loose (don't remove it) and turn the engine over, you should have fuel at the fitting.
