Diesel Problem..airjer?

7 posts in this topic

I just put $2300 into my transmission so naturally I'm having problems with my diesel engine. It's a 92 6.5 Turbo Diesel. When starting everything is fine for the first few seconds, it starts up, idles good, then revs up (on its own) and kills. It's almost like it's flooding. To start it I put pedal to the metal and it does the same thing one or two more times, then stays running. It runs fine except going up steep hill when it's cold. Then it seems to "take off" on it's own. Any ideas? Thanks

Sounds like you might have some air or leak in a fuel line some where. Do you know if they had to disconnect any fuel lines when they did your transmission?

By your description, it sounds like the air is getting purged after your second or third start.

Gunflint, do you have the PMD module moved from motor to fender of truck ?

6.5s had many problems with the electronic control of the injection pump, to fix it you had to install the module away from top of motor where it was getting hot.

I had 2 of them and both had same issue which was solved by moving PMD module to left front fender, adding a cooling fin, and of course a harness extension.

When truck acts funny try to get a bottle of water and pour it on left side of fuel pump, if it runs fine for a minute or so, PMD might be your problem.

I once traveled 200 miles using a case of Coke I had in truck to cool off my pump....it was a mess all over the motor but I got home.

Fuel filter.

These are all good possibilities. Yes, they disconnected fuel lines when working on the tranny. Upon closer inspection I discovered a possible fuel leak along the underside of the bed. Also when this problem started it only happened when the engine was warm but now it happens on a cold start. The fuel filter has less than 400 miles on it. So far this sounds like an affordable problem. The biggest issue will be giving up a day of fishing tomorrow to try and track this down.

Don't forget to check your fuel return lines. If there's an air leak you can have problems like this as well.

      i wanted a yellow lab and got over ruled on the chocolate.  Great looking dog!  Does not look 115 pounds
    • JB18
          Thanks!  She is only 40 pounds at 9 months old.  Don't think she will get much bigger. I was hoping to talk with some people at the game farm next month to see if i can get a great price on a pre-buy program.    I have some pheasant feathers and she goes crazy when she see me grab them.  I need to find a field that the grass is not chest high to plant them or better yet get some game birds and tie the feet off and plant those.    If you drive by Round Lake and see a red Tundra stop in and say hello. I am there most nights when it gets this hot.

      Awese thread! I take our golden/lab mix to Round Lake for training also. This pic is from May when it was chilly. We're having an absolute blast working together. She's a sweet dog, will do anything to please me if she understands. Only thing I have to do before the season is somehow introduce her to gunshots and that's not easy without private land. Watching her barrel through the cattails to find that dummy is awesome.

      There are a few small Trout lakes in there as well but not sure how they bite in the summer? I've only Ice fished them.

      Finally making it up for our first trip of the year. Strictly walleye fishing in Frazer Bay with slip bobbers around the reefs. Appreciate any fishing reports. Thanks!

      I believe they take vets living in veteran homes around the area like Silver Bay veteran home ect

      tango loves going to Crooked lake!   Sand pines really works with you well for starting off. I don't know just because they were not busy but the kid stayed out with me and planted one by one until I told him to release them all. Golden meadows is nice as well. Do the pre buy program (I think if you buy before mid Aug) and the birds are a good price. They will flag all the birds if you want.   He still only weighs under 60lbs but I like it that way he is deadly fast and never gets tired   Cant wait to see how he does this season want to make a trip to the Dakotas at least once

      Does anybody know of a local Alexandria shop that would install a Humminbird Helix for me?

      Like Mlaker3 said... go as light as you can. The key is to try and stay vertical. It's the nature of the beast when jigging in rocks that your going to get some snags and loose some jigs.
