I had the same problem with my 94 chevy 6.5 diesel,and spent alot of money trying things that people told me to try.I wound up taking it to the dealer and they told me it was the injection pump.They put one in it and that fixed it.It has run great for over a year and a half.This set me back about $4000.00!

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 2002 chev. diesel truck turns over but wont start, new filter


anytime you change the filter in a diesel you have to bleed the air out of the fuel system. The pump won't auto bleed the fuel system for you. every place in the fuel system that has a flare type connection needs to be bleed, start at the connection closest to the tank, loosen the connection and then crank the engine until you see diesel fuel drips from that connection. Tighten the connection while the engine is still cranking. Move to the next connection that is going toward the engine. Continue on in that manner toward the engine until you reach the injector pump/injector. Once you reach the injector pump be VERY aware that the fuel is at VERY high pressure. Do NOT put your body parts in the stream of high pressure diesel fuel. It could kill or injure you! Once you bleed all the way to the injector pump/ injector, the truck SHOULD start. Do not bleed after the injector pump because of the pressure involved, it is WAY too dangerous.

Good luck!

The fuel system needs to to have the air bled out of it. I suggest having a technician do it for you to prevent serious injury and damage to the vehicle.

Replaced fuel filter on 2005 F250 diesel. Forgot to put fuel in filter and tried to start truck. Now can't get it started due to air. have been working on it for 2 days now. Got it started twice today but...


Let it crank, the air will pass through the system and it will run. Next time install the filters but the top one leave it cracked a bit and keep your socket on itturn the key to the run position and go back to the filter, when the bubbles stop coming out and its mostly diesel tighten it down. truck will start right away. Makes a bit of a mess but floor drywill soak it right up and brake clean will clean it right off the top of the engine.

1986 bmw 325e starts and runs fine for about 5-10 minutes, then starts dieseling and dies. wont start for 5-10 minutes,and then will start fine.


I would suggest you check the fuel filter or fuel supply to the engine as it may be a venting problem of a clogged fuel filter.

1989 ford f350 diesel wont start


If the truck has good batteries and cranks well.--- There is a schrader valve on top of the fuel filter housing, (it looks like a tire stem valve) depress this valve while someone cranks the engine until you have fuel flowing out of this air bleeder valve. From that point, crank until it starts. Do not crank more than 30 Seconds, then let the starter motor rest. After you have this air out it usually startes in one or two tries.

When was the fuel filter last replaced? What precedded this no start condition? Was it running fine?

Agin, this truck must crank quickly in order to start

good luck

Deisal out of gas wont start


The fuel system has a bleeder located on the engine, located near the passenger side front of the engine. Open the bleeder, turn the engine over until you can see fuel come out on the ground near the front of the engine. Close the bleeder, attempt to restart the engine. It may take a couple of tries, but it should start after five or six attempts. Do not run the starter for more than twenty seconds per attempt, with at least one minute between attempts.
