Leave the bleeder open-as per the military manual on these-with a cup or bottle under it to be neat, plus if working by yourself, you can see when you are getting lots of fuel, then you can close it. I then crack all the injectors until I get steady fuel. Like they said , strong batteries and patience. 20-30 seconds per crank, then wait for at least 5-10 minutes for the batteries and starter to cool down. Or else you'll burn up the starter...

There should be a bleeder next to the fuel filter, either on top or on the side...start by cranking you motor a few times and stop...then open the bleeder...you should hear some air and maybe see some diesel fuel come out...next shut the bleeder and crank motor again.....repeat the process untill you have a steady flow of diesel fuel with out air....close bleeder and your good to go...

I HAVE A 1998 DODGE 3500 P/U DIESEL. THE WAIT OT START LIGHT KEEPS FLASHING. IT WILL CRANK BUT NOT START>


The wait to start light is telling you there's a problem. Check out your drivers guide. There can be a whole load of problems causing this problem, water in the diesel, blocked fuel filter, no diesel, but if it cranks and starts eventually. The glow plugs probably need replacing.

Ran out of diesel, added diesel but now it wont start 2007 Chev 2500


Hello and welcome. you will have to perform the bleed procedure using the fuel prime on the fuel filter housing. there is a pump on top of the fuel filter assembly, on the passenger side of engine.

Open the vent valve screw (1) by turning the screw counterclockwise several full turns.




Operate the priming pump (1) by repeatedly pumping until a small amount of fuel seeps from the vent valve. Allow the pump to fully return upward between pumps. When fuel is present, the filter is full of fuel and the system is primed.
Close the vent valve screw.

Car ran low on diesel. will not restart


I'm not sure the MK4 1.9TDI has a primmer actuator like the the old models did. This primes the fuel system removing air inside the system. I know there is a procedure in your case to prime the system which will require cracking open a valve and bypassing the fuel pump relay to operate manually filling the system with diesel and ridding the air inside.

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.
