Diesel engine hard starting issues on Dodge D250

Diesel engines may develop a hard start or no start condition due to any one of  the following issues: Low fuel pressure, air entering the fuel system, and loss of fuel system prime. Our technicians tell us that the rubber inlet hose at the back of the injection pump and the lift pump are common causes for these concerns. Lack of fuel to the injection pump can damage the pump due to lack of lubrication, when this occurs it is not uncommon to replace the lift pump, injection pump, and fuel injectors.
