2003 Duramax won't start when hot.

I have a 2003 2500 HD that will not start when hot. It starts fine when cold and runs great. No smoke and plenty of power. Once the engine heats up if you shut it down it won't start for at least 2 hours until completely cooled off.

I have taken it to the GM dealer who tested it and said it might be the injectors but he wasn't sure as they all tested fine. He couldn't find the problem. The only thing he did was replace the pressure release screw on top of the fuel filter housing. That seemed to help a little for a short period of time.

I have replaced the fuel filter (GM produce) five times in less than 100,000 miles so I don't believe that is the problem.

Any ideas how to fix this problem?


Thank you!

Have the return rates on the injectors checked. I heard this has been other peoples problems.

If the return rates are off does that mean new injectors?

Thanks

I would say injectors returning too much fuel is a good possibility also. Do the bottle test when warm, and try a good injector cleaning. There are excellent writeups here about both.

Common problem with bad injectors on the LB7 engine. When the engine is warm, they by-pass to much fuel, and the rail pressure is low.

If a fuel pump was installed would it bring the rail pressure up so it would start?
