Hi there, I am Cam. Can you tell me where you are spraying water to cool it off?

Customer: replied 2 years ago.
All over I can not locate the click the upper radiator hose is also pressured and pressure in fuel tank when hot

OK, It sounds like the typical issue on these 6.5L Engines. When the pump mounted driver (PMD) also called the Fuel Solenoid Driver(FSD) get warm, they won't run. This is located on the engine, under the intake manifold, just forward and left (drivers side) of the centre. For this, the fix is to get a remote mount kit and replacement driver module. Then you can mount the driver module out of the engine heat where it will not cause issues and fail like the one you currently have.

It started after done by Gm dealer it's like the glow plugs don't work when running temp the wait to start light don't even come on until cooled
Expert:  GM Tech (Cam) replied 2 years ago.

I am wondering then about there is abad connection or ground it could cause this. If not that then one of the parts they installed is indeed faulty. What warranty have they offered on it when you had this work done?

Customer: replied 2 years ago.
One year warranty I will check for bad ground maybe not enough crank on starter to fire when warm
Expert:  GM Tech (Cam) replied 2 years ago.

I have seen bad connections on the wiring at the pump and PMD as well, pins pulling out and such.

Customer: replied 2 years ago.
Okay I will check all the wiring if I can't figure it out I will have somebody within the next day or so
Expert:  GM Tech (Cam) replied 2 years ago.

Ok, sounds good.
