What causes hard starting when engine is hot?

Hard warm starts can also be traced to a leaking fuel pressure regulator (FPR) or fuel injector. ... If the fuel lines are hot, under hot weather conditions and a hot engine, the fuel will have room to evaporate inside the line, creating a hard-to-start condition. Other symptoms of a bad FPR: stalling.

Why does my diesel engine struggles to start?

It's the middle of summer and your diesel engine is having trouble getting started. The problems that can occur due to the cold weather are well-known and fairly common, such as using summer-grade fuel in winter, a bad glow plug system, slow cranking, or thick, cold oil.

How do you bleed air out of a 6.5 diesel?

Place the opposite end of the hose in a fuel safe container. If the engine will run, start the engine and bleed any remaining air from the system by slightly opening the T-handle bleed valve until a steady stream of fuel flows out of the hose. Close the valve once this is achieved.

How long does a 6.5 turbo diesel last?

Yes some last longer than 300k, but it's not the most common thing to go much longer. Many of them puke out between 2-300k. If you have the $$ to do so, while its in good running condition, now would be the time to go through it.

Can a car not start because of heat?

When your new car engine is too hot, fuel cannot circulate well, due to the way vapor obstructs its workings and therefore the engine just will not start, as it should.

How do you diagnose a diesel engine not starting?

A diesel engine that cranks normally but won't start regardless of the outside temperature either has low compression or a fuel delivery problem. If compression is okay, check the fuel gauge (out of fuel?). Then check the fuel filters and lines for obstructions.

Can you use wd40 to start a diesel engine?

Actually, WD-40 is safer to use as a "starting" fluid than Ether in a Diesel engine... Ether will ignite too early, possibly leading to bent rods... a definite "Never"... WD-40 has been known to work, but is still a bad idea...

How do I know if my diesel injectors are bad?

Here are the 5 most common symptoms of faulty diesel fuel injectors. Trouble starting the vehicle or uneven idling. The engine cranks but doesn't start unless you crank it for a long time. The engine is using different speeds of revs on idle.

How do you test an injection pump on a 6.5 Diesel?

To test the lift pump start the vehicle. Open the T-Valve for a minimum of 30 seconds and let fuel drain from the line into a container. If during the 30 seconds the engine dies or no fuel flows out of the line then your lift pump is bad..

How do you check the fuel pressure on a 6.5 turbo diesel?

If the engine continues to run and a continuous stream of fluid exits the hose, perform the pressure check below. Install a fuel pressure gauge to the drain/bleed valve hose. Start the engine, then crack open the drain/bleed valve and read the fuel pressure. Fuel pressure should read between 3 and 7 psi at idle.
