In my boat, if I run out of diesel, I have to bleed the system up to the injectors. I presume that does not happen with diesel cars. Why? Cormac McHenry
Hi . Thank you for asking your question on JustAnswer. all diesels \ act like this...cars trucks farm tractors....the system gets air trapped due to the injector pump....Thank you again for trusting us with your problem. John aka eauto
Your answer is not clear to me. Are you saying that if a diesel engined car runs out of fuel, the system has to be bled, just like my boat? Surely diesel engined cars run out of fuel as often as petrol cars do? Cormac
as A diesel Technician and certified in every major heavy equipmentengine.You do not hurt the engine running out of fuel..The pickup tube cannot suck up 5-7% of the fuel on the bottom just to keep dirt/water out, and of course you have the primary and secondary filters/separators for anything that got picked up by movement of the equipt. stirring the bottom.I can restart one of these in under 1 min after they have been run out of fuelRunning out of fuel to any real diesel mechanic is meaningless and takes no thought to start it up as we see it happen almost everyday. Many methods to do it...but it is second nature to a diesel mechanic...which they have none there !
