Its supposed to turn on then off its called priming, it will run continuously when the motor cranks and runs. check the fuel pressure while cranking.

Just had my car filters changed now it won'tstart

If fuel filter has been changed suspect lack of fuel to engine, Diesels sometimes have a manual priming pump to over come this problem, the cars diesel pump will not easily self prime., although some GM engines are designed like this. Always fill fuel filter bowl with clean diesel when re assembling. A after market manual pump with non-return valve is often fitted as an addition to overcome this difficulty.

Clutch pedal goes to floor. I change the clutch, pressure plate and throw out bearing. Still no clutch pedal. Changed out the cylinder that presses against throw out lever arm and bled it. Still no clutch...

you need to pressure bleed the system, or you can fill the brake system to over fill as it needs to be over the pipe for the clutch line. and keep it there and pump and bleed the line, but before pumping undo the bleed screw and put bowl uner to catch fluwid and fill the line up till it runs out clear with no bubbles. then tighten the bleed screw. then fill up and pump pedal, the re bleed. should be done then, pressure kit doe this all in one just hold clutch down and undo the bleed screw let air out etc then tighten up. and its done. used for doing the breaks as well.

How do u change fuel filter on a 1997 F-350 powerstroke ?

1 Open lid/remove plastic cover over fuel bowl .

2. Open drain valve (to the left side at the bottom of the bowl) by pushing it to the left (back of the truck). You may want to attach a piece of 5/16" hose to the bottom of the drain so you can avoid a mess.

3. Unscrew the fuel bowl lid. You may need to use tools to loosen the lid, but I can usually get mine by hand. If u need to u can use a 1/2" drive ratchet to loosen the lid.

4. Remove the old fuel filter and o-ring (from the lid).

5. Close the drain valve on the fuel bowl.

6.This is optional. Fill the fuel bowl about 1/2 way with Standyne Lubricity Formula or a similar product.

7. Install the new o-ring on the lid making sure to follow the instructions for the beveled edge. Lightly coat the new o-ring with fresh diesel fuel.

8. Attach the new fuel filter to the lid.

9. Install the new filter/lid and make sure it is on straight and snug, do not over tighten!

10. Turn the key and wait for at least 10 seconds, especially if you didn't add any additive to the fuel bowl. This will allow the fuel bowl to fill before you start the engine.

You can use filters that come attached to the lid, but don't throw your lid away. You may need it if you go back to the other style filter...

That's it...your done. Hope this helps FixYa.

Fuel pump not pumping or priming

Fist check fuel filter and make sure it isnt just clogged. If not you will have to replace fuel pump. my dad had his replaced on his 1995 blazer and it cost over 1000 dollars but he didnt shop around. Make sure you shop around if you go to a big fancy shop you will be paying for there over head. You would be suprised the differance in prices you will get if you just shop around a little.

22r carb dumping fuel at 2500 rpm will not pass smog.Was rebuilt and is in smog specs. at idle.

Fill the tank up but do not top off.

Ran the trunk for 15-20 minutes on the highway and recheck the fuel surge condition at 2500 rpm.

If it stop surging then you has a weak fuel pump.

Change the fuel filter will also help.

Also check the fast idle setting.
If everything checks out then set a smog check appointment in the EARLY MORNING.

When i press the gas pedal to the floor it stops gettign feul

hey i have the same CAR, but not the same problem....
i came across this forum/site, and typed in your question. its very similar. im no expert, but i have had my time under the hood in my good ol rex. and it sounds like your fuel pump is going out to me.
this is a response from a professional:

"Check the fuel filter, fuel pump and fuel pressure regulator to make sure they are all functioning properly. Also, check the catalytic converters to make sure they are not plugged."
