2004 Chevrolet Silverado 2500 HD Q&A

2004 Chevrolet Silverado 2500 HD Question: How difficult is it to repair the fuel primer on a 2004 silverado diesel?

If I take out the 2 screws from the coverplate, what can I expect? The last time I ran out of fuel, the primer wouldn't reprime the engine until I pushed it extremely hard. Only the last eighth inch of movement produced any pumping action. Can the seals or the valves be replaced or renewed in it? The dealer says the entire assy. comes as a unit. -
Answer 1
poss fuel drain on bottom of filter housing, they leak and are plastic.very cheap repair. -
Answer 2
i would not take it apart. just as the dealer told you, replace it as a unit. Roy -
