I would never use starting fluid in my Cummins! Some use it to start after a filter change .

Air lock is a common issues on Mechanical injector diesels (most common after changing fuel filters). Make bleeding air a habit when changing filters. Just "Bumping" the starter to run the pump a couple times doesn't rid the system of air, you need to give the air a place to go. I open the H2O drain while the pump is running, to bleed the filter canister. Then crack the the grease gun line for my FP gauge at the VP$$ to rid the last of it.

Just on my :sb:
