The outgoing line may be air-locked. Try opening the line up and letting it fill with fluid, and then reseal the line and start the pump.

12ht wont prime


filling the filters before installing will make priming go more quickly.
once the pump is primed crack open the fuse line at the injector while cranking until you have fuel pulsing out, close it then move on to the next injector.
keep doing this until the engine runs smoothly.
it may start running before all the injectors have been purged so keep clear of all moving parts and a fire extinguisher handy would be a good idea.

The engin will turn over but will not start. When you turn on the ignition I cannot hear the pump prime the engine.


Try checking your fuses or relays if all good might be the fuel pump this happens when it always low on fuel it sucks trash when low on fuel.

My electric pump cannot sucked up water even if there is water on the pipeline


This is what kind of pump? Non- automotive trash pump, right? It has to be primed by filling the volute with water. Failing to do so will burn up the ceramic seal. It isn't designed to pump air. Good luck

I have a Fimco 2.1 gpm pump that worked fine last week. I ran it until it didn't spray anymore. This week the motor runs but it seems to have lost its prime,it won't pump.Any ideas? The filter is clean. No...


I don't think that these pumps run dry very well ... most likely you ruptured a diaphragm by running it dry. How long did it run dry? ... take it apart and see if the diaphragm or valves are damaged. You will need to replace them before the pump will work.
