Customer Question
I have a 1995 chevy...
I have a 1995 chevy 6.5 diesel. When I start it, it runs fine for about 20 seconds then dies. It is hard to restart but when it does restart it misses and sputters for 35 to 45 minutes until motor warms up to temp. I have replaced the injector module and the relocate kit. I have also replaced the glow plugs, glow plug relay and heat temp sensor and lift pump. It is still doing the same thing. Can someone please help? Out of ideas....

Can not access my database at this time to check for bulletin's. They must be updating the servers.

Have you changed the fuel filter?

Check condition of fuel it filter housing when filter is removed?

Unfortunately changing the filter as you suggested did not correct the problem any other advise
Chevy Mechanic: Daniel Jones,
 replied 2 years ago

Since there was no issue with the filter. The problem has to do with the Optical sensor in the Injection pump, but the pump should be replaced as assembly.
