Hey got a 6.6 gmc lily Duramax. 300000 Alison auto. Had a quarter tank but decided to stop at gas station and pop another $20 in. Put my fuel in, and then, an unusual start. Took longer to start. But it did after a couple tries. I drove about 20 ft and it stalled. It just cranked but no start. No rpm on the gauge. I opened the bleed screw on the filter and pumped it about 40 times and got bubbles and diesel. Closed the bleed screw and then tried it. No go. No difference. Codes are PO670, PI404, PO401, PO404, PO405. Although egr was deleted. Must be old codes the egr ones. Checked under hood fuses. All good. Gotta check relays but gotta get it home first. Any help would be appreciated.

No RPM? If that's the case you should be looking at the crank sensor.

Ok. Yes. With how fast these batteries spin the engine, there should be some rpms. Ill go back and check that pump to see what was put in tank. Ill also check out the rag thing. Thanks guys. Ill post back when I get to it.

Question. Shouldn’t the fuel line into the filter be pressurized? I loosened the banjo bolt and nothing. No pressure

Yeah, cranked it with the bolt loose. No pressure. Then tightened and pumped up the fuel filter bulb. Then loosened bleed screw again. Got bubbles. But still no start

I sprayed starting fluid into it and it started then died. Twice. Does this truck have a lift pump in tank or just the cp3?

Fixed! I pumped the button on the filter about 20 times, opened the bleed screw slowly and got bubbles then diesel. Pumped 20 more times. Turned the starter over and it started.

They don't like air in the system. Glad to see you are good.
