Hi there, I am Cam. Does it fire if you pump the plunger on the top of the fuel filter housing?

The plunger is hard, I can barely move it a fraction of an inch
GMC Mechanic: Gm Tech (Cam), GMC Mechanic replied 3 years ago
Ok, how does it sound while cranking? Is it strong? IF so then with some help, do this. Unplug the connector on the top of the glow plug relay on the back of the drivers side valve cover, then have an assistant crank the engine, and WHILE cranking, spray no more than 1/2 second spray of brake cleans or start aid to see if that will help it. Small shots without the glow plugs will help prevent blow outs.

Yes, pulling the heavy cable to the glow plug controller does the same.

I am thinking we have an injector issue. These use hydraulic pressure from the fuel system to operate the injector. SO a small amount of fuel is supposed to bypass to open the main part of the injector to make it operate. When these start to fail, this causes to much fuel to bypass and return to the tank. This resulting fuel loss will lower the fuel rail pressure and at a time when the pressure is needed most, during cranking, it takes longer to build the required 1450 psi to operate the injector. SO the test we do is this. Find the 2 fuel lines on the rear drivers side valve cover. Take the smaller one off and attach your hose to the metal pipe coming from the engine. Put the other end into the container and run the engine to fill that line. Then shut it off and remove the IGN 1 relay from beside the starter relay. If the engine will not start at that time, crank it to fill the line, then empty out the container and keep the line full. Crank the engine for 15 seconds fully and measure the amount of fuel that comes out of that line. More than 24cc means the injectors have failed and they need to be replaced.

I replace the injectors already
less than 10 thousand miles ago
GMC Mechanic: Gm Tech (Cam), GMC Mechanic replied 3 years ago
OK, we still need to check if you can please.

I ran my hand around, and did not feel two lines.
There is a lot of wiring etc on top of the valve cover.
You may have exceeded my ability to follow your directions.
I also don't know where the relay is if I got that far.
Sounds like I needed to have some tubing/hose also to perform this.Not sure where to turn next
GMC Mechanic: Gm Tech (Cam), GMC Mechanic replied 3 years ago
Yes we must start with this test.
