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.

The overflow need to be filled with water?


Yes, it is important to include the overflow tank or bottle as integral with the radiator and coolant system as a whole. They all intermix. Actually, the level in the overflow tank is a true measure of the correct amount to keep your coolant at. There are two marks on the overflow: full hot and full cold. The coolant system on all modern cars is a sealed system and therefore should never require adding, save a very small amount through evaporation within the overflow tank- the only part that is open to atmosphere.

So once you get all the air out of the system that is possible, both in the engine and in the radiator, you have a full level everywhere, including the overflow tank where it should always remain somewhere between the full hot and full cold marks.

You are right that the overflow collects the heated radiator coolant. But it is due to the expansive properties of coolant-or water- that it expands when heated, (but not boiling-that is very bad news of a different sort). Your radiator cap is designed to open at a specific pressure, just enough to allow coolant to flow into the overflow. As the engine and coolant cools, it contracts, the level drops in the radiator, and a natural vacuum there will siphon the overflow tank back into the radiator until it is full again. That is why you have the full hot and full cold marks.
I will shut off the lecture now. I hope you have liked my answer. If not, I give you permission to kill me now- if I may so jest.

Antifreeze keep coming out of my overflow on my 1999 alero olsd.. i chnge the water pump , radiator, thermostate , and no milky in oil,, it did nt over heat what else coud it be/


how about a bad cap, if it doesnt overheat then you may have a bad cap allowing coolant to flow into overflow when it shouldnt, the overflow is for when pressure builds to a certain amount it flows but not always and a bad cap will do this, good day.

99 cadillac deville engine overheating an loosing coolent couple times a day.Replaced thermostat, water pump ok, cooling fans on at 217deg.,radiator pressure tested an holding pressure.engine still keeps...


Check to see if you have flow through the entire radiator.If part of the radiator core is cool to the touch when the engine is at operating temp, this indicates restricted radiator flow. If the entire radiator core is not allowing water to flow through, cooling will not be at all efficient. Also a good idea would be to purchase a block tester. available at napa and other reputable parts houses for around thirty dollars. You remove a small amount of coolant, and put the tool in the radiator, or pressure tank opening. If there are any combustable gasses present, i'e' exhaust, this would indicate a head gasket breech, (or maybe worse) and would indicate that it's time to stop looking for a simple problems, and get proffessional help. Good luck to you!

When I refuel, gas would overflow even after the pump has automatically clicked off. This happens both when I hold the pump handle manually and when it is locked in place.


check in the throat of the filler neck and see if the overflow tube is blocked small hole in the neck that allows overflow of gas to bleed down like the way your bathtub works when it gets to full check the passage if its clear or the hose from the neck to the tank

Car runs well but after driving it awhile the fan does not come on. the temp gauge in the dash does not go up past halfway but steam comes from under the hood.the fan works and i replaced the temp sencer...


Typically when there is steam coming from the hood there is a pin hole in the radiator or hose. Most of the time when I see this problem there was a small chip in the radiator from a stone. It would allow steam to push out of the radiator but it was small enough to not allow any fluid to drip out. Hope this helps!

Losing anti-freeze cant find leak. dropping to same point every time.


Look at your overflow tank, these caps have a psi rating and if the seal gets old the cap won't hold the pressure and releases small amounts of antifreeze. Sometimes the overflow tank will be a powder looking in spots from the hot water leaking out.

How to remove water pump from 1999 pontiac grand am GT


After you drain coolant remove the larger hose at the bottom of over flow tank and the 2 smaller hoses at the top. remove the 1 bolt holding the overflow tank on and remove tank. Next take serpentine belt. Take the 4 bolts off holding on the water pump pulley and remove pulley. Next remove the 5 bolts holding water pump in. Clean water pump housing of old gasket and clean with alcohol or paint thinner to remove any residue. Use a small amount of RTV sealant along with a new gasket and put in the 5 bolts tightening them by hand. Next tighten the bolt a quarter turn at a time until tight.put on pulley, put in overflow tank and attach bolt and 3 hoses .
