Hi and welcome to FixYa,

Offhand, I suspect an exposed wire that touches the top cover when placed back on or the igniter is being grounded with the cover on. Pls inspect for any loose/misplaced wires or missing insulator/pad.

Good luck and Thank you for using FixYa. Happy Holidays.

It can be some air and fuel pressure issues.
FILTERS: Dirty air or oil filters will cause an imbalance
in the air-fuel mixture. The best indication that this
condition exists is an increase in odors or difficulty
getting your heater to ignite. This heater should never be
operated without the filters in place. If required clean
filters as described under "500 HR" and "Annual Schedules".

How do I replace the fuel filter on a Chrysler 1997 town and country 3.8 lxi


  • Relieve the fuel system pressure by removing the fuel pump relay from the power distribution center. Start the engine and allow it to run until it stalls. Try to start it again and let it run until it stalls. Repeat this procedure until it no longer will start. Turn the ignition off.
  • Disconnect the negative battery cable and raise the vehicle. Support the fuel tank with a transmission jack. Locate the fuel filter on the top of your Chrysler Town & Country fuel tank.
  • Remove the fuel line from the front of the tank and then the ground strap. Next, remove the inboard side of the fuel tank straps and front T-strap fastener. Lower the tank about 6 inches.
  • Detach the fuel lines from the fuel pump module and then remove the fuel filter. Put the new filter in its place. Tighten the fuel filter bolts to 40 inch pounds.
  • Reconnect the fuel lines to the fuel pump module and reposition the tank. Replace the front T strap fastener and tighten it to 250 inch pounds. Put the inboard fuel tank straps back and tighten them to 40 foot pounds.
  • Put on the ground strap and connect the fuel line in the front of the tank. Start the engine of your Town & Country and check for leaks.

    Fuso 6d40 injector pump didn't transfer fuel to injector.


    bleed the air out of the pump
    from your photo the bleed screw is the nut with a screw in it that has a slot. Use a flat bladed screw driver and loosen the screw and use the hand pump located in the photo right at the bottom and lightly to the rear of centre. Undo the top ,pump until you have solid fuel from the bleed screw and close of the bleed screw. Connect all the injector lines up leaving them loose at the injectors. Crank the motor and you will see ( after a few seconds drips of fuel at the loose nuts . Tighten the nuts while cranking and the engine will fire as the injectors start to work (SAFETY NOTE)
    THE FUEL AT THE INJECTOR NUTS WILL BE AT 20.000 PSI OR BETTER SO KEEP YOUR FINGERS WELL AWAY FROM THE NUTS.AS YOU TIGHTEN THEM UP.

    1995 international flat six diesel 466 wont run changed fuel filter losend lines bleed out air wont run squirt eathier starts dies


    Make sure you pre fill the filters with clean fuel. Locate the hand primer usually near the fuel lift pump. Unscrew the top till it pops up. Pump repeatedly until it gets hard to pump. You can crack the injector lines while pumping till fuel comes out or have someone crank the engine with the starter while you continue to pump the hand primer. Make sure after it's running the pump is pushed all the way down and tightened back up

    Bobcat trouble shooting


    either on the pump or fuel filter case there will be a small hand pump that you pump the fuel to the fuel pump. there are small bleed screws at the filter or on the pump that you open partially and as you pump you will see air and fuel come out. keep pumping until you get solid fuel then close off. The pump may be round so you will have to unscrew the top and that will allow the pump plunger to move . When finished do up the plunger again. Once the air is out of the system, crack the injector line nuts at each injector and crank the engine until there are drops of fuel at the nut, tighten up the nuts and it should start.

    Just changed the fuel filter on my navara D40 dual cab started it, ran for 5 seconds and won't start again. Have pumped the top on the filter for ages. HELP


    check if there is bleed screw on the pump and if so bleed there while pumping the filter pump. Next loosen off the injector line nuts and crank over until you see fuel droplets at the nuts . keep cranking as you tighten up the nuts and it should go. Diesels not starting after filter changes ( or running out of fuel) is a result of air in the system / pump/ injectors.

    Clarke king 140 power wash, boiler wont fire up


    Remove the main cover, look on top of the grey boiler cylinder and remove the black cover marked FUEL PUMP. You will see the fuel pump unit, on the side of the unit there is a small wingnut used for bleeding the fuel pump. Carefully switch on the washer onto its hot setting and while it is running undo the bleed screw until you see fuel start to drip from the screw, you can then tighten the screw and the boiler should fire. Be careful not to touch any of the high voltage ignition components while you carry out the bleeding procedure.

    Hi i have a master space heater model 150 paraffin, runs ok with the cover off but when i put the cover back on it stops. The flame out button clicks to shut the heater down. any info please


    These units have a air pump on the back of the fan motor. Has anyone messed with the settings? The pump usually runs off of 5 to 6 lbs. of pump pressure. This is what controls the fuel flow that is sprayed out of the fuel injector. This unit also should have a photo eye for flame out control. It is positioned near the ignitor looking though a hole in the combustion chamber. Make sure it is clean and looking in the hole. Make sure your ignitor is working also.

    Slow leak from what appears to be some kind of adjustment screw on top of pump , solution to stop leak


    This is probably just the plug that is used to prime the pump if it looses it's prime, but I can't be positive since your description is a bit vague. I suppose that if you thought it adjusted something that you would be reluctant to just tighten it. Go ahead and tighten it. If it still leaks, then do the following:
    Get some teflon tape (ask for it in the plumbing section at home improvement store or hardware store - $2 or less) Get a helper (a child will do). Turn off the power to the pump. Turn on the water at the kitchen sink until it stops running, then turn it off again. Now remove the leaking screw. Some water will come rushing out, but have your helper push his/her thumb over the hole (don't put a small finger IN the hole). Wrap the teflon tape around the screw in a clockwise direction as viewed from the bottom of the screw. Wrap about 5 layers, nice and snug. Don't leave a loose end that will dangle from the bottom of the screw. Put the screw back in the hole, nice and tight. Good luck, Al K

    SANDERSON TELEPORTER, HOW DO I BLEED THE LUCAS FUEL PUMP ON A PERKINS ENGINE


    Perkins is a hard engine to prime. Fill the fuel filter with clean diesel, there should be a hand pump on the left side(looking at the front of the vehicle) . There should be a bleed screw on top of the filter housing. Loosen the bleed srew and pump the hand pump untill you get a steady stream of fuel from it. Tighten the bleed screw. Loosen the injector bonnet nuts approximately 1 1/2 turns on all of the injectors. Turn the engine over until you see a steady stream of fuel from the the injector bonnets. Tighten the bonnet nuts, pump the handpump approx 10 times and start the engine. Give it half throttle until it stops stumbling and all of the air is worked out of the system.

    I just ran into this problem as I was rebuilding my 1.3 engine. When you put the mechanical pump back on, you have to be sure the rod that pushes against the pump is all the way in, check this with your finger, you should only feel about 1/4 inch of the rod, if you should feel more, turn the crank with a wrench until it goes in all the way. Then put your pump on making sure that you start both mounting bolts before you begin to tighten, as you tighten gently pull back on the top of the pump, so the lever will line up with the pumps push rod in the head. Your pump will work fine after that.
