Angry Boy do I feel like a horses rear

Installed my new VP-44 last night, went very well, started bleeding air out of lines,bled ,bled some more no start. Had the wife drag me around the block with a couple of injectors cracked still no start, well said enough for tonight. Came home from work today changed one of those fany washers on the LP thinking I was sucking air, bled some more, finally I'm convinced all the air is gone, still no start. Stand there scratching my head, this truck should start. I take lid off fuse panel under hood look at relay marked fuel system, take relay that was in tranny relay out swapthem tell wife start it up. the beast awakens, I think I just spent $1200 on preventative maintance. That would have bought a mad ecm and some 275 injectors. I honestly thought that relay was just for the lift pump.
OKready for the ridacule.

We have all done stuff like that. This site helps minimize "mistakes".

What was your reason for replacing the IP? Did you have an 0216 code?

You can change your sig now.
Hey, you can carry an extra IP, like some guys have an extra LP on hand.
I have about 2500 miles on my new VP, but that was under warranty......

Don't sweat it.

You coujld sell the used ip to make up some of the cash. Experience can be measured in dollars spent fixing your mistakes.

I'd be really interested to know if you had any codes before the pump swap.

More than likely he "traded" it in for the core so it can be rebuilt.

.... your wife was pretty impressed as well ( check "OTHER" posts)

It is actually a blessing in disguise, because that pump would have probably given out on you at the most in-opportune time. At least that is the train of thought that I would follow.

You done good, regardless ... just remember to start with the simple things when you trouble shoot.

Water over the dam, At least you didn't pay some idiot @ the dealership to replace the pump. Now you've got some piece of mind, people waste alot more on alot worse habits. A+ for effort

I agree... At least you know it was done right.... So relax and enjoy the diesel...

When mine was done at the dealer I found the fuel filter housing was loose, and several other fasteners were loose too. Strange to hear boost whistling out of a bolt hole.

I learn my lesson... If some else does work on your rig... INSPECT IT CLOSELY! Just a good bit of advise!

fschiola, never checked codes when it quit me, but I did have 216 last summer several times before I made my fuel cooler. I just asummed it had finally give up on me, maybe it did and blowed the fuse at the same time, I don't know. Anyway, now that little thought in the back of mind that was saying is today VP-44 day, is gone. I've moved the lift pump to the tank, 1/2'' lines from pickup tube to VP, and most importantly fuel pressure gauge. Took her for a spin last night pressure never dropped blow 13psi. I 'm very happy!

Jed, I think your bride owes you an appoligy. Your blown fuse was caused by the IP going out. If you had an 0216 last year it was getting weak anyway. No more horses butt! AND your wive needs to appoligize to you. (Like that would EVER happen)
