Re: 95 f250 powerstroke no fuel in bowl

Have you replaced it? If so where did you get it? And if you haven't replaced it, with almost 333k on it, It's very possible. Check diesel o ring out for a pump. 140$ I think? I've used Autozone pumps but haven't had the best luck.

Could be a pump problem, clogged pickup in the tank, bad selector valve etc. Don't just assume it's the pump.

Re: 95 f250 powerstroke no fuel in bowl

i know this is years later i replaced the fuel pump. when i removed the pump it was broken where it goes into the engine. it started but didn't run correctly. I sadly traded it off and did not have a diesel till i just brought another. This past sunday. I plan on keeping this one.

Re: 95 f250 powerstroke no fuel in bowl

Have you tried switching tanks?

How much fuel in each tank? The fuel pickup has a habit of rotting off on these trucks and won't pick up any fuel when the tang gets around 1/4 of a tank.

Fuel pump is also a likely culprit.

Im going to agree with CSP. Best thing to do is check fuel pressure before the bowl, I have seen this done before but dont know the procedure and Im sure with a quick google search you could find something and while your at it also check the pressure at the bowl for reassurance.
Next I would also cycle through different tanks if you have a dual tank set up (I had this happen to me in Alaska in the middle of freakin no where) come to find out...it was a clogged pickup as CSP describes but again sometimes the selector valve near the frame takes a crap and wont send fuel up or is just clogged up.
If you do buy a pump, I recommend a pump from www.dieselorings.com He always has the RIGHT stuff, with fast shipping and reasonably priced.

Get out your pooper scoopers, cuz these suckas are talkin ####.

He's already fixed and sold the truck.

Re: 95 f250 powerstroke no fuel in bowl

Also people think that the old pump is broken when the tappet comes loose from the old pump and drops into the engine oil pan. This is just normal and the pump isn't broken if this happens.

Even if this is a 4 year old thresd

No no, the information definitely transcends thread age. Was just an observation. Props to the OP for remembering the thread.
