Engine Cuts Out or Won't Start
A common fault showing up on many diesel GM vehicles fitted with
the Isuzu EDU as pictured, is caused by
a fault in the electronic control unit fitted inside.
The pump in question is by Delphi / Delco, as fitted to Y17DT or Y17DTL diesel engines, and the symptom is that the vehicle will not start, or it suffers from cutting out intermittently.
Typical fault code recorded is P0251
If your vehicle has other issues such as poor running, loss of power, excess smoke from the exhaust etc, then this service is probably not for you.
Inside the electronic module (the EDU / ECU), is an electronic
circuit that controls the fuel pump operation.
Over time, the circuit and components start to fail due to the harsh environment.
The usual result is no start or intermittent cutting out, which gets progressively worse.
This can be confirmed by checking for fault codes P0251.
Of course, there can be other reasons for non-starting, including other (mechanical) parts of the pump, but this is a very common cause, and the only alternative if you have eliminated everything else, is a new or reconditioned pump.
