    top of the engine in the fuel distribution manifold to the fuel injectors, looks like a tire valve. But like i said the fuel system is self bleeding, if it won't start u either have a defective fuel; pump or fuel level to low to pull a steady stream of fuel, did u just replace the fuel pump or filter? just crank it over for a few seconds and stop and repeat 3 or 4 timers to purge lines.

Hello i broke a fuel line off the tank I put it back on and now primed and bleed from the fuel filter but still wont start. its a hino truck 91 tipper truck


start at the filter and bleed the air , next is the bleed screws at the pump (could be one or two depending on the make ) if it doesn't start then loosen off all the injector lines at the injectors and crank the engine until you see fuel dripping from the nuts ( that is bleeding the air from the injector line s)
have someone tighten the nuts while cranking and it will then fire up as the nuts get tightened

How do you bleed a diesel pump jeep Cherokee turbo diesel 3.1 5 cylinder 2001


we dont have this engine here, USA.
but i have the WG jeep book,
starting page 12 , chapter 14


FUEL INJECTION PUMP BLEEDING
(1) If the fuel injection pump has been replaced,
air should be bled at the overflow valve before
attempting to start engine.
(a) Loosen the overflow valve (Fig. 18) at the
rear of the injection pump.
(b) Place a towel below the valve.
WARNING: WHEN CRANKING THE ENGINE TO
BLEED AIR FROM THE INJECTION PUMP, THE
ENGINE MAY START. PLACE THE TRANSMISSION
IN NEUTRAL OR PARK AND SET PARKING BRAKE
BEFORE ENGAGING THE STARTER MOTOR.
CAUTION: Do not engage the starter motor for
more than 30 seconds at a time. Allow 2 minutes
between cranking intervals.
(2) Crank the engine for 30 seconds at a time to
allow air trapped in the injection pump to vent out
the fuel injector drain tubes. Continue this procedure
until the engine starts. Observe the previous WARNING
and CAUTION.
(3) Tighten overflow valve.
HIGH-PRESSURE FUEL LINE BLEEDING
WARNING: THE INJECTION PUMP SUPPLIES HIGH-
-PRESSURE FUEL OF APPROXIMATELY 45,000 KPA
(6,526 PSI) TO EACH INDIVIDUAL INJECTOR
THROUGH THE HIGH-PRESSURE LINES. FUEL
UNDER THIS AMOUNT OF PRESSURE CAN PENETRATE
THE SKIN AND CAUSE PERSONAL INJURY.
WEAR SAFETY GOGGLES AND ADEQUATE PROTECTIVE
CLOTHING AND AVOID CONTACT WITH
FUEL SPRAY WHEN BLEEDING HIGH-PRESSURE
FUEL LINES.
WARNING: DO NOT BLEED AIR FROM THE FUEL
SYSTEM OF A HOT ENGINE. DO NOT ALLOW FUEL
TO SPRAY ONTO THE EXHAUST MANIFOLD WHEN
BLEEDING AIR FROM THE FUEL SYSTEM.
Bleed air from one injector at time.
(1) Loosen the high-pressure fuel line fitting at
the injector (Fig. 19).
(2) Crank the engine until all air has been bled
from the line. Do not operate the starter motor
for longer than 30 seconds. Wait 2 minutes
between cranking intervals.
(3) Start the engine and bleed one injector at a
time until the engine runs smoothly.

My Pontiac Sunbird 96 ran out of fuel. I need to know how to bleed the system of air. Where is the bleeding line??


you shouldn't need to bleed the air out-if you filled back up with fuel and its not starting you probably have a bad fuel pump-sorry- to bleed the fuel line look where the fuel line connects to the fuel injector rail-on the rail there should be a thing that looks like a tire inflator valve-turn the key on and push in the center of the valve and fuel should come out of it -if not then for sure pump isn't working- cheers Denny

How to bleed air from my fuel line on 2003 nissan navara 3.3 v6 petrol? also how to test my fuel pump to see if its working properly?


It is not necessary to bleed air in your system as the fuel flow through the lines will pass the air back to the tank. have a fuel pressure test done on the fuel manifold and it will check fuel pump/ filter and fuel pressure regulator.

My 5.9 dodge cummins diesel won't start, I've replaced the fuel lift pump, and the fuel filter, turns over. But will not start?


Most likely you just have air in the lines.Crack them open one at a time and bleed them with the fuel pump off and on till you get fuel.If it fires dont hit the throttle let it sit and idle and close the line.Does it fire up with a small whif of starting fluid?
