Crack the in line at the injector pump and bemp the motor. This will run the lift pump for 20 seconds or so. DO NOT CRANK THE MOTOR! Cranking the motor with no fuel to the injector pump WILL BURN OUT THE PUMP! Continue to bump the motor until you get fuel at the injector pump. Allow for the LP pump to stop running in between bumps. Once you have fuel at the injector pump, crack the #1,3 and 4 injectors. Crank the motor in 10 second intervals, allowing 10 min. or so between cranks to let the injector pump cool. When the motor starts close the injectors and let it run to finish bleeding out the system. The bleed process is easier with two people. You'll lose less preciouse diesel that way.

You have to have good batterys and then you need a partner to help. First crack open the injecter line at the head and have your partner crank until you see fuel, then close and move on to the next injecter line and repeat.

I ran a mixture of diesel and water thru my fuel system about three miles or so what do i do now


drain the fuel, change the filter, add fresh diesel. cycle the key several times and see if she fires up. you might have to crack the injector lines to help in bleeding the air out of the system. the good thing is the vp44 injection pump doesn't know what its pumping and 2001 24v cummins do not have electronic injectors, so you should be ok.

It sounds like you have a bad mastercylinder cause when you panic brake it doesn't have time to bleed through the valve in the cylinder but under normal braking your foot is on pedal longer in turn giving the fluid time to bypass the valve in the mastercylinder in turn the pedal going to the floor.

Priming fuel


You prime it at the lifter pump on the drivers side the primer is a black rubber push button type. you shouldn't have to crack any injector lines if you do you can risk damaging the lines or their ability to seal. good luck
