This is a 2005 Chevrolet Silverado 2500hd diesel. Filled it up last night. Turning over this morning but wont crank. Changed out the primer pump 4-5 months ago. Tried priming the pump, bleeding the air out but no use

Hi there, I am Cam.

Had you had any issues prior to this?

Did you drive it after filling it up? If so, how far?

Ok, so I need to ask, are you 100% sure its only diesel in the tank? Any chance nozzle got mixed up or the station changed the pumps around? This sounds just like what happens when it gets gas in it and with the fill up before, its hard to overlook.

I would take a sample of fuel from the filter and verify.
