Chevrolet Repair Questions? Ask a Chevy Mechanic for Answers ASAP
This website says that you have requested me specifically. May I ask why did you request me or did you even request me? Have I worked with you before?
Ok, the reason I asked is that I am not a Diesel expert and I see you only had the one post. I will opt out of this, cause like I said, I am not a Diesel expert. Although instead of waiting I could look up perhaps what that mechanic did do and I'm willing to bet he bled the air out of the fuel system.
Here is the procedure,
Bleeding The Fuel System
Open the air bleed valve on the fuel manager/filter.
Connect a hose to the air bleed valve and place the other of the hose in a suitable container.
The Diesel/water mixture is flammable and may be hot. To avoid personal injury or property damage, do not allow the Diesel/water mixture to come in contact with skin, open flame or a hot engine. Do not overfill the container holding the fuel mixture as heat from a warm engine or any another heat source may cause the fuel to expand and leak from the container that may lead to a fire.
Remove the F/SOL fuse from the fuse panel.
Crank the engine in short intervals of 10-to-15 seconds until clear fuel is observed at the air bleed hose (wait for 1 minute between cranking intervals)
Remove the hose and close the air bleed valve.
Install the F/SOL fuse and start the vehicle. Allow the vehicle to run at idle for 5 minutes.
Check for fuel leaks, and clear any Diagnostic Trouble Codes (DTCs)
