You got either got a bad timing chain/belt. What is happening is that the camshaft probably does not even rotate anymore and the intake valve is in the open position, and as you crank the engine the compression goes out the intake. Do this remove the valve cover to see if the valve moves while you have someone crank the engine or you can get a remote switch so you can crank it while looking under the hood. good luck

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.

Sorry forgot to mention, when trying to start with starter running fuel pump won't run


Hi Ed:
I don't know what vehicle you're dealing with, but when you turn the ignition to "on" you should be able to hear the fuel pump (provided it's electric) running. After a few seconds, the sound will change, indicating that the system is pressurized. Even if the fuel pump does not run while the starter is engaged, there should be enough residual pressure to provide start=up fuel.
Hope this helps.

My 02 sprinter van won't start after changing the fuel filter


I'm curios if you somehow got air in the line in the process. You might just need to let the starter try for 5-10 seconds while the fuel pump tries to pump out the air bubble. Also check the line for a tight fit where the clamp is. Can you hear the pump just before you engage the starter?

Replaced starter on my 04 dodge stratus and still cranks but still doesnt start what else can be the problem


numerous reasons: Check for blown fuses for the ECU- the brains of the car. Next try replacing the fuel filter (not likely). Next- fuel pump relay-Turn on ignition but don't try to start, listen for a humming sound from the gas tank, pump should run for about 2 seconds then stop, if it does this you can rule out the fuel pump relay, if not change out the relay and try above again, if still no humming then the pump it self might be bad. This I think is the only check you can do without specialized tools
Crankshaft position sensor mechanic will have to check this.
There is a sensor that watches your oil level-might be bad

When ignition is on then starter is engaged gas stops flowing through fuel filter


Sounds like the fuel pump has went bad...the fuse first it may be blown and if this is not the case the you can turn the key on but dont try to start it,just trun it on and listen for a humming noise in the gas tank.maybe have someonelisten around gas tank while you turn the key. if you hear nothing then this would indicate that fuel pump is not working..Best way to find out is have a pressure test run on fuel system. Car does not have to run to preform this test...I alway just do the listen way and it hasent failed me yet.....hope this info helps and if so Please rate my post and good luck...if more help is needed fill free to contact me .....

I turn the key and dont do eniting ,after 3-4 times she star


If you mean that you turn the key to start but the starter motor doesn't engage the flywheel until the key is turned to start several times, try this. Look under the front of the car and locate the starter motor, which will be at the front of the oil pan. Tap the end of the starter motor with the handle of a large screwdriver a couple of times. If the starter then engages, the starter motor is bad. What happened to the last 99 Caravan (w/175,000 miles) was that a large amount of oily gunk had made its way into the part of the starter that housed the motor brush ***'y, preventing the motor brushes from moving freely and keeping one or more of them from making contact with the armature. The fix was to spray cleaner into the unit. That freed up the brushes and allowed the starter to work. That was a year ago. If you mean that the motor turns over, but doesn't start until you have tried 3 or for times, then I suspect a fuel problem. I have seen a problem where the fuel drains out of the fuel line when the car is off so that repeatedly turning the key to start runs the fuel pump which must refill the fuel line before it can reach the engine. Check the fuel pump, the fuel pump relay, etc. Or, locate the fuel pump relay, under the hood, on the driver side fender. Carefully remove the relay and remove the black plastic cover by lifting the two tabs. Carefully reinsert the relay, sans cover, and have an assistant turn on the key. If the contact "pulls in" then have your assistant remove the gas cap and listen as you manually close the contact with your finger. ( It's okay, the 12 volts won't shock you!) If they can hear a whirring sound, then the pump is working. Have someone start the car while you keep the relay engaged. Hope this helps. Dano

Fuel pump working,got spark. Wont start after it ran out of gas.Throttle body is still dry after turning it over


When you first turn the key on, you should be able to hear the fuel pump for a couple of seconds If there is no sound, then look for a blown fuse or a bad relay. It is possible that the pump will not prime itself after being dry. Try starting the engine with a can of starter fluid. If it starts then dies, you will know the pump isn't working. Give it a couple of tries with the starter fluid just in case the fuel lines are full of air.

I ran out of gas in 2002 chevy impala now it wont start, I have put $20 in it already, It is saying service vehicle soon.


The problem with running out of gas is, the driver keeps trying to start the engine when the tank is empty and it burns up the fuel pump. Turn the key on and listen very closely for a hum or buzz coming from the back or underneath the car. This would indicate the pump is running, No sound may mean the pump is not running. Find the fuel pump relay on the fuse block under the hood and swap it with another relay to see if that has any effect. Also check the fuse panel for a blown fuse. If all else fails, get a can of starting fluid, remove the air filter, and spray the fluid into the intake duct while at the same time craning the starter, The engine should start. If it starts and dies, do this 3 or 4 times. If the engine still wont stay running, you may have to replace the fuel pump.

I tried to feed power to my 2001 sable fuel pump to see if it was bad. By probing wire with a hot lead. Both fans on the motor came and now the starter will not engage. I've put a new fuel pump in...


check to see if you damaged the fuel pump relay or starter relay. I still suspect that a fuse is blown os fuselink on the left inner fender.
