How to prime carburetor on 1988 Toyota tercel 1bbl


Normally, you wouldn't need to do this to get the engine started. If you have a mechanical fuel pump ion the engine, just cranking the engine over should cause the pump to push gas into the carburetor. And if an electric pump, it should come on with the key in on.

But to prime, pour a small amount of gas down the throat of the carb, and crank. As the engine fires and runs, the pump should begin working and pushing fuel into the carb.

2004 dodge 2500 ram diesel


I'm not familiar with that particular vehicle, but most diesel systems have a primer under the hood. You will need to pump that slowly until you feel some resistance. That will push fuel to the engine. The other pump may not be able to push fuel through until the system is primed.

If that doesn't get you running I would suspect a clogged fuel filter. Most Dodge vehicles have one on the frame. Just follow the fuel lines until you find it. There may also be one attached to the pump primer.

Changing that filter would my next action. Whether the pump is in the tank or added on outside the tank, you may still need to prime the system after the filter is replaced. Air in the line may cause it to stall, just reprime and start again.

Good luck.

Air in fuel line?


get a container with fuel(about 4 liters will do). put a hose from the Primer to the fuel container and another hose from the injection pump return line to the container. if it works fine then the air leak is between the tank and the primer.

2002 Chevy Silverado ran out of gas, now won't start!


If you have a schrade valve on the fuel rail, you can turn the key on and carefully depress the valve to bleed most of the air out of the system (valve is inside an aluminum or plastic cap similar to those found on your air conditioning system) You don't have a carb on there you have a throttle body...you can spray carb cleaner (not either) into it while cranking and it may help.
Sometimes though, a marginal fuel pump will give up when run dry of fuel. If pump cannot be heard with key on, check fuse and relay...if good, pump may have expired. also, make sure filter is able to flow fuel before replacing pump.

Priming fuel system on a 8.1L diesel engine 2001chev 1 ton dual


Well, one problem is, if its an 8.1, its not a diesel. The 8.1, or Vortec 8100, is a gas engine. The DuraMax is a 6.6 engine. There is usually not a priming system on a gas engine, because the fuel pumps will usually get it through the smaller filters used quick enough you dont need them. However, if it is a DuraMax engine, then right on top of the fitting where you mount your diesel filter, there is a primer pump and an air bleed valve. What you do is, open up that air bleed valve ( its a little black plastic octagon shaped thing on the top of the filter mount) then you pump the primer (the silver button looking thing) until you get diesel squiting out the air vent without too many air bubbles or gurgles.
