Also to know is, how do I know if my PMD is bad?
The most common symptom for the pmd failing is a hard starting hot issues. You could be sucking air into the fuel system some how. Do you know how many miles are on that pmd or that injection pump? Those Injection pumps get 90,000 – 130,000 miles out of them.
One may also ask, how do you bleed a 6.5 Chevy Diesel? With the bleed orifice on the fuel filter open, crank the engine over for no more than 10 seconds, then position the key to the “OFF” position and allow the starter to cool for 60 seconds.
Accordingly, what is a PMD on a Chevy Diesel?
PMD stands for Pump Mounted Driver. The same part is also called an FSD or Fuel Solenoid Driver. (One is GM terminology, the other Stanadyne terminology). It is a “black box” about the size of a pack of cards mounted on the driver’s side of the injection pump.
