Diesel fuel pump PDF Print E-mail
Dear Barbara,
 
My truck is a 1993 6.5 turbo Diesel, is the fuel pump located on the frame? We ran it out of fuel and now it wont stay running, I think it caused the fuel pump to go out, It runs for a while then it starts surging and acts like it is not getting fuel, because it still has air, so we have to bleed it, We have done this several times and it still will not run for very long.
 
Thanks Sandy
 
Dear Sandy,
 
The first thing is since you know how to bleed the system I would try changing the fuel filter. Then bleed the system and see if the problem persists, and if so then the fuel pump is located on the inner frame rail. It is possible you will not have to bleed the system after changing the fuel pump but not always true.
 
Thanks for writing in,
