Check the filters on the injectors, and the regulator. they have a small filter on each injector and one of the regulator. you can prime with the regulator off but only by hand not motor as it will go like a fountain. check the filters are clean, and refit once the fuel is pasted the regulator it should start to fire up.

SOURCE: 99 dodge ram 3500 5.9 turbo diesel fuel problem

It is my understanding that the fuel lft pump has been replaced( updated) and is now gone back to the old way and is re installed in the tank.

I have had to put 3 lift pumps in since new, little did I know but Cummins tells me that the lift pump delivers minimal pressure and shortens the life of your injector pump.

So if that is true perhaps it is best to eliminate the lift pump and go with the new in tank pump. I plan on doing it the next time I have a problem.

SOURCE: truck ran completely out of fuel.

is there a primer valve on the pump? it would unscrew and then pull out if it had one. take a look around the injection pump. but i belive that uses an electric lift pump it should not need to be primed there may be something else going on here.

Did you check to see if there is power to the glow plugs if not then that may be the problem and if there is power when you cycle the key not to start but for the plugs to warm up you may have a bad glow plugs.

SOURCE: 2004 Dodge ram diesel just die out of the blue.

It sounds like it could be the transfer pump. Turn the key on and then crank the engine for about 1 second but leave the key in the run position and listen for the transfer pump to run. It should run for about 15 seconds after you stop cranking. If not, then you will need to replace the transfer pump with a in-the-tank conversion kit if your is mounted on the side of the engine block below the fuel filter housing. If you already have the in-the-tank pump then it might be siezed or the "sock" might be plugged up with alge or other contaminants. I usually lift the bed rather than removing the tank to replace the fuel module. If the check engine light is on you might want to have it scanned for codes to make sure since the modules can be spendy.

the diesel fuel filter should be located on the firewall and should be a spin on/off filter like an oil filter and must be filled with diesel fuel before installation. if you go buy the new one first it will help you locate it on your bus

Hi i have an avensis verso d4d 2litre diesel 2003 its lacking bad on power


Mr Allan first thing you must do is to renew the fuel filter,check if there is any other filters and then if you still have any old fuel in tank drain it,fill it up with a clean diesel and my personal advice as an automotive engineer try what I do personally,ask from a petrol station if they sell- " TWO STROKE OIL " yes is the oil use in mixing with petrol for mopped motorcycles. Use 250ml in tank full of diesel ,-full tank to empty -before light comes on and re-use again 250ml for another full tank and continued for four times. It is also good to do this even for two times filling every two months,. Two Stroke Oil has the power to clean and lubricate the feeding system of a diesel engine also treats the fuel injectors even when you might hear them working rough. It is like a cough medicine. Try it and let me know.

I need "step by step" instructions on how to replace the fuel filter on my 2001 Dodge Ram 3500 pickup. Thanks !


Here you go if it is a diesel:
A. FUEL FILTER REPLACEMENT:
The fuel filter is located inside of the fuel filter housing
1. Unscrew and remove fuel filter cap at top of fuel filter housing. To unscrew, attach tool to 6-sided hex center of cap. Do not loosen cap at outer edge. The fuel filter cap is designed to remove filter while pulling up on cap.
2. Remove O-ring from cap and discard.
3. The filter is retained to cap with little fingers. Carefully pry a couple of them off from old filter.
B. FUEL FILTER REPLACEMENT:
1. Thoroughly clean inside of filter housing, cap, etc. with clean diesel fuel
2. Fill filter housing (canister) with clean diesel fuel. NOTE: If you do not do this, you will have to manually bleed air out of system later. No fun.
3. Snap new fuel filter to bottom of cap.
4. Install new O-ring
5. Apply lihgt film of clean diesel oil to cap O-ring
6. Load filter/cap into housing.
7. Tighten cap to 25 ft. lbs. torque. Do NOT over-tighten.

Unleaded gas in a diesel fuel tank


do not worry about draining it, pour about 6 to 8 ounces of engine oil in it, and top it up with fresh fuel, it will be fine. The only way to drain the tank is to remove it and turn it over.

My first Desiel


The most critical things in owning a diesel are the air and fuel filters. Irregardless of what the owner's manual may say change the fuel filters at least twice a year, spring and fall because the oil companies change their additives in the fuel twice a tear. The air filter should be done at least once a year. Keep a close eye on the water in fuel warning and fix it when it shows up, your owner's manual should have the steps to take. Most diesel's call for 15-40 diesel oil, there's no reason not to stay with it. Pick up a copy of Haynes Diesel Engine Repair Manual, part # 10330.It will save you a lot of time,money and headaches. It costs about $20 at the auto parts store.
Before you make any decisions to start tinkering with it to increase power do your research. Diesel's work well because everything is balanced and even though supplier's may claim you won't have to change anything else, don't bet on it. Bank's is a reliable authority on diesel performance to judge decisions on. Hope this helps.

Severe engine clunking after oil change


Appearently Mr Lube is either going to end up fixing your car. I dont know what could have happend other than maybe they put the wrong type of oil back in it. I would definately get ahold of some of the higher ups at Mr Lube and "Ensure" they put your car back the way it was when it arrived there. There is no purely coincidence about it. They were the last ones to touch it. They will be the first ones to fix it. Make sure you are very firm with them, and keep track of names/dates/events as this important if you need to consult an attorney because of their negligence. Hope this gives you some direction, Thanks for using FixYa!
