Wasn't sure there was a fuse as the research I have been doing says the supply pump from tank is mechanical. Like most diesels will I need to prime and bleed the system ?
Technician: Wayne, Journeyman replied 5 months ago

Hi

Thank you for the reply

Yes, if it is the pump, you will need to drop the filters

fill with clean fuel and start , to bleed the system

I need to know the year ,Please

Customer reply replied 5 months ago
No nothing.
Technician: Wayne, Journeyman replied 5 months ago

OK, Neal

That is saying that the ECM shut down the fuel

if you have WD 40 spray into air intake, if runs 1-2 seconds

your ECM crashed

I hope this helps you

Customer reply replied 5 months ago
Ok. Unplugged ECM also disconnected all battery posts for 1/2 hour. Will hook it all up here shortly. Won't that allow ECM to reprogram. ? Any thing else I may be able to do ? I live in the Keys Florida. International is north Miami. Trying to hit all bases before tomorrow and drive two hours for exercise ?
Technician: Wayne, Journeyman replied 5 months ago

Hi Neal

No that won't update it

but it may clear the fault code

Would it be better to take to Cummings dealer shop. Or international ?
Customer reply replied 5 months ago
They can check it out and reprogram. Correct. Which would be better ?
Technician: Wayne, Journeyman replied 5 months ago

HI

I suggest Cummins ,hands down

Dealer Mechanics are not that good with the ECM,

also most of them send them out to Cummins

I have also had an ABS light going on and off after the Lubrifiner was replaced. It just recently, like last 300 miles has been staying off most of the time. In my reasearch I have noticed technicians saying the ABS will effect ECM also. Do you concure. ??
