Is it in the ignitigtion switch? The odometer shows it has traveled 98,000 miles. That may or may not be at the heart of the problem. I do know that you do not use starting fluid on an engine equipped with glow plugs because you mess them up. If fuel is being injected into the combustion chamber, there will be a nice cloud of atomized fuel being blown out into the air. Tomorrow it may start right away. Again, if the truck hesitated, stumbled, and died, I would say fuel issue. One to lubricate the engine components and the other to operate the fuel injectors.
Can't see the glow plugs. Otherwise it won't start after sitting for more than 6 hours. Regarding fuel I do not have the red button that was mentioned but I did check the fuel filter fuse and it was okay. The kit will arrive Wednesday, so I will let everyone know the outcome when I get it installed. Over the years, I have seen many no start problems caused by stuck fuel injectors. I dont want to neccesarily go replacing a bunch of parts right now though, beyond what it takes to get the truck running, so I come asking advice hopefully from folks here who are familiar with the 6. Cause im kinda worried it could be it cause last time I drove it the cable from the battery to fuse box was loose and it was acting up.
Do you know how to do this? In a no-hot start, pour a bottle of room-temp water on the injection pump. Consider waiting for them to cycle 6 times or more, instead of just once which some people do. Do you have any anti-gel additives? Where does the crank sensor wires go and how can I test the wires the only way I checked them was with a test light and the power wire was good. When people subscribe, that tells me that you want more, which motivates me to get out there and give you more of what you want! When you turn key to on position i dont hear the fuel pump come on like usual and the lines have no pressure and are not getting fuel. Electrical problem 1996 Chevy Silverado V8 Four Wheel Drive Automatic i have 1996 chevolet k1500 5. Does the starter motor turn the engine over when you turn the key cranks? The Need for Proper Fuel Injection After the proper compression has been verified, the technician needs to verify proper fuel injection.
With the advent of the electronic diesel fuel injection system, a scan tool and scan data will be your friend. The failure to restart and the cutting off have to be related I believe. When that happens, an electrical signal…. I immediately restarted it, and parked it. There are many things to check here, but start with the easiest stuff first like checking fuel pressure, maybe change the fuel filter if it is plugged, even the air filter if it is dirty. If the switch were bad, I have probably tried it 20 times, and I would think one of them I would have gotten nothing, but everytime it works like it is supposed to, just won't crank up. I immediately restarted it, and parked it.
The coolant temp sender not the level sender can inhibit glow plug operation. Out came no water, but plenty of fuel. Maybe try pulling it for codes anyways, see if anything comes up. One wire will have B+ all the time, across from it on the other big post this is the feed to the glow plugs. Cracked fuel lines up to engine-fuel there but not at injectors. Make sure they are corrosion free and tight and secure. Do you have a scanner handy? Also, I have twin Optima 1000 amp battery's and a new starter so it spins hard and fast.
One clue that is sticking in my mind is the engine stall when rounding a left-hand corner. It could be one of several things. Generation one and two powerstrokes will vary in their glow plug control, but I will keep this simple. Please indicate any modifications to the vehicle that might help us diagnose better. On one of the occasions that I actually got it started I went to have the battery and alternator tested and was told that the alternator was good but the battery was low. The best time to use the scan data to snoop out a high pressure oil leak is when the engine oil is hot and the engine is idling. You drained the fuel separator allowing more air into the system.
I was moving it around the other day while working on it, and it just cut off. Replaced the cap, rotor, wires, ignition control module, and now the crankshaft position sensor. Thats fine because when I turn the key, all lights function, glow plugs heat up, and the fuel pump moves fuel. In case you get into an accident, the red plunger pops out and breaks the connection to the fuel pumps, disabling them. Are you using any fuel additives? Use a test lamp, ohm meter, or continuity tester. I don't remember a failed neutral safety switch allows the engine to crank or not, but I suspect not. A closed circuit indicates they are good, with near certainty on a rare occasion, one will show continuity, but still not heat.
I have some mechanical knowledge but no where to apply it i. Give her a shot of starting fluid, not to much because the engine will rev freely until the starting fluid burns off. First step was to open the water bleed off valve on the front of the engine, and tried to start it tis is the procedure for draining water out of the water separator, so it is not supposed to get air in the system. That's just from two guys on one of the Hummer forums. Was driving and running fine, was coming to stop at a light and it died and would crank but not start. It is only a matter of time till all the glow plugs fail. I was moving it around the other day while working on it, and it just cut off.
Next up I am going to flush out the fuel tanks, check the brakes, fix the horn, change fuel filter, air filter, and rear axle oil. Ran and drove fine till it died again pulling back in my driveway just a mile or so of driving. I do not know the full details aside from his grumble. I am not sure about all diesels, because we use it on older tractors all the time. The first step in a 7. Answer: Sounds like this may be a hot start fuel problem.
Heck you recently bought the truck so you might as well do this anyways. The kit looked to be of good quality materials, and the installation went quick. In the world of today, this is a little harder, if not downright impossible. To recap, of the complaints that I found online, the majority originate from one person using 5 or 6 aliases on the dieselplace website. And ran the battery down trying.
