This is very commonly a small leak in the return line to the fuel tank. Also check for vacuum lock. If fuel pressure is less than 35-40 psi than the pump is bad. Hook up an ohmmeter to the glow plug terminal and ground the other end. Was the light illuminated after it was running? That part is good anyway.
You'll probably need a new pump in that case. Fuel pressure internal to the injection pump partially controls injection timing.

I replaced it and drover her for about 2 weeks. I also checked the maf sensor and map sensor. I ordered it this morning around 10, and I got the email confirmation that it shipped after 3.
Sep 19, 2016 Make sure you get a fuel pressure reading to know if you need to replace the fuel pump assembly. I am having trouble starting my 1998 k3500 7. A troubleshoot of this engine should walk through the essential components one at a time. Put your hand around the fuel shutoff solenoid, its the silver small cylinder dildo looking thingie, mounted on the injection pump. There are 2 marks that line up, one on the pump, one on the block. If so you could have a bad wire to the fuel pump or a plugged fuel filter. Or a 'burban, van, etc? Easiest thing to do and might solve your problem.
Compression One or more cylinders that are significantly below the others in compression pressure will lag behind the others in coming up to operating temperature. It turned out to be the throttle sensor which is attached to the gas pedal. Maybe try pulling it for codes anyways, see if anything comes up. Of course make sure your batteries are charged up completely. It should only take a half hour of work. White Smoke Most diesels with an engine temperature below about 80 F. If I try to climb a vertical wall with the front drivers side tire, the truck will climb about 2 inch's and the motor will start chugging and it will not go any higher.
When you Turn the Fan with the Belt off the Pully Wobbles: With the belt off it looks like the water pump shaft is bent. The product arrived when they said, and was a quality product. One or more Glow Plugs not working unburned fuel from one or more cylinders Does it only happen on startup and then go away? The batteries have a decent reserve on them too, because with all my messing around with the truck, i have yet to have them go down enough to need charging. Typically, if running it would stay running until turned off where the relay had to break. I bought it as a non running truck that was driven into storage last winter and would not start this spring.
If not there's a good chance that it's you fuel injection pump. I went to move it again two more times, and it did the same thing each time. If the truck is in that position, it will not restart. On really hot days I will not shut my truck off because of it. What voltage are they showing prior to cranking? Stay tuned because I will address the no spark condition when time allows. For this to happen the normal air intake and or filter would have to have been blocked off.
I was going to suggest the ignition control module but if you are getting spark, its probably not that. High voltage signal assumes your trying to clear a flooded engine and dissables the injectors. There used to be an article on the dieselpage. This happened three or four times on one hill. I immediately restarted it, and parked it. The engine was advertised as new, he received a remanufactured product.
I am getting beautiful spark and plenty of fuel pressure. At no time during any of these 4 occurances, did it run rough or anything. An owners truck that got hydro locked evidently sucked water up through the drain. Water gets sucked into the engine instead of air. That truck needs between 54-66psi of fuel pressure to run correctly.
Use the manual and make sure the right sized fuses are in the right spots. Low engine temperature As mentioned above, during startup, a normal healthy engine will produce some white smoke because of the cold environment in the combustion chamber. Put it to the floor and you get the same. I have tried reading up on this engine as much as I could the last few days, and have a general understanding of how these engines work. This problem happened yesterday and my battery voltage was low.
