Can I supply power direct to the spill valve to get it going again to enable me to do a proper fault finding?

If you do that it might start... and the whole engine would be "kaput"
so its better if you tow it and take it to a garage

SOURCE: just a faulty fuel pressure sensor or more serious?

It's possible it's a wiring or PCM issue but it's pretty likely the sensor itself.

Testimonial: "thanks for the positive encouragement. changing sensor was a reasonable attempt but unfortunately code keeps popping up once in a while. Will schedule diagnosis at dealer."

SOURCE: bought a 1992 chevy Silverado 4.3 liter that's

only thing I ever noticed when running and electric fuel pump on a carburated motor is that it can over power seals,gaskets and o rings. (so it could be running rich...or lean (i forget which is for to much fuel))

may need to rebuild the carburetor, or simply have it adjusted? im not sure tho.

but this only my suggestion

No power from take off, sluggish

Changed your fuel filter lately? Deisel motors take a regular filter change as they collect water in the fuel and become clogged leading to bad performance and eventualy a no start condition.

Does a toyota hilux surf 1995 diesel have spark plugs and points as in the days of yore??

Diesel engines don't have spark plugs. They use compression and heat to fire the diesel. Most diesel engines have glow plugs which are designed to preheat the combustion chamber to help burn the diesel fuel when you start it up. Hope this helps.

How to bleed the air from the diesel fuel filter

You have to take the filter of and then fill it up with fuel then replace filter without spilling any fuel out to cause more air to get in the line. When you try to crank the car or truck over it may take a few trys but it should start after a few trys.

Surf 1KZ-TE Diesel wont fire

Typically, the glow plug light not coming on indicates that you have some bad plugs or poor connection. You need to replace the plugs and check the wire connections. It is interesting how picky diesels are when they aren't warm.
Hope this helps.

My 93 hilux surf turbo diesel has started to run a bit rough, not too bad but i have noticed it, i recently had the glow plugs and cold start relay done, but this has had no effect. also uses more fuel....

You may want to add some diesel fuel conditioner.

This is most likely from dirty injector nozzles.

You could also try some automatic transmission fluid in your fuel (about 1/4 quart or so)

That sometimes works.

It may also help if you change your fuel filter regularly.

You may also want to do a compression test on your engine to make sure your engine is in good shape.

There are lots of variables, but I would try injector cleaner first.

(TOYOTA SURF 1990 TURBO DIESEL) No diesel coming out of fuel pump

If it has glow plugs or an intake heater you will need to disable the circuit. Then you can use a small amount of ether to spray into the air cleaner.!!! If you spray too much and/or Dont disable the circuits you can damage the motor!!! When you spray the ether, if the engine starts and stalls then its not getting fuel. This could be related to the fuel pump, injection pump, the fuel system loosing its prime(fuel line leak), fuel shut-off valve or solenoid. If it doesn't start then it could be related to your timing, valves or maybe compression.

Toyota Surf Diesel starting problem

Injectors could be blocked but i would go with an injector pump or fuel pump.

Motor not running

The problem was a electronic box which controls the multi valve system on the fuel pump not the ERPS. The box had lost it's earth contact. These motors don't have a cut off solenoid like older diesels, a lot of trial and error to find.
Now a happy fellow.
