Check the fuel filter lid. I ran out of diesel, I'm embarrassed to say, but I primed the system and didn't have any tools and could barely get the fuel filter cap on tight enough. It was spraying fuel out of the cap just a tiny bit but it was enough to reduce pressure, put diesel on the ground, and not allow the truck to restart.

Free bump too... hope we get more thoughts up on here!

Where is he at? If he is between Dallas and Houston we are leaving to go to Sealy. Maybe we can help Cell number 972.310.0890.

he said that everthing is tight, he thinks it might be high pressure fuel pump on the back of the engine.

Yeah it's actually a high pressure oil pump. with these trucks it's what gives the injectors motivation to work. I know of a few that have gone out. Unfortunatly theres no fix on the side of the road that I am aware of.

But she said it was fuel that was leaking right?

Could it be another fluid or no?
