6.5L Diesel Starting Problems

Volume 2 Issue 1 - 6.2/6.5 Issues and Answers

We hope you can help us with our hard starting 1995 Chevy 6.5 diesel. When the wait to start light comes on and stays on the normal amount of time, it starts fine, like always. Often, the light comes on only very briefly and the start up is not so easy, with a lot of extra cranking. Perhaps this additional problem is related and I include it to help in the diagnosis: The truck often bucks and misses under heavy load. Two shops have diagnosed this as a failed fuel transfer pump. Between the two shops, they have installed 4 new fuel transfer pumps: no help. One shop replaced the engine computer: no change. Another replaced the glow plug relay: no change. Yet another replaced the ignition switch: again, no change. Sure hope you can offer a suggestion! Ray S., Maine
