A remote mount PMD is often the answer to your 6.5TD diesel problems... but they aren't cheap, and they don't solve every issue.  Careful diagnostics are a must.



Don't buy ANYTHING from duramax.bizhosting.com - this is a scam site, and will take your money with no warranty... if the PMD isn't your problem, too bad, from their perspective.  



Think about it - would a reputable dealer NOT have a street address you could visit, or a phone number you could call?  



Go to www.scam.com to check this out before you buy from this guy.  Good luck with your truck!!

I have several 1995  6.5 litre diesels and I can tell you this:

Most stalling in the 1995 is not from the pump or the driver, but it is the oil pressure switch which when the engine starts turns on the electric pump which feeds the injector pump.

1995 they designed it this way so that if you were in an accident the electric pump would sut off fromm no oil pressure.

This was a very poor design.

I wired my electric pump to a fuse double on the key turn on and I have not had a problem since.

I went through two injector pumps and PMDs when a good friend a local diesel shop told me there are nothing wrong with the pumps.

The electric pump keeps the pump full of fuel which allows for proper working of the system.

SAve big moey try this first.

I have a 95GMC diesel also with the exact same problem. I took mine to the dealership last yr. and they could not figure it out. Mine kept stalling so much, it finally quit running. After sitting for approx. one yr.I found a mechanic who figured it out. I needed an oil pressure sensor, the part was $30. The sensor was telling the engine I did not have enough oil pressure, therefor as a safety feature on the truck, the sensor would shut down the fuel pump. When the truck was stalling and then restarting, the sensor was working off and on, until it finally just quit all together.  Im so happy to have my truck back, good luck on yours.

just replace the driver first.get the 6ft. harness and run it to the front & down under to where you can mount it to your frame behind your bumper.if you leave it under the hood every time you go out & stop somwhere the eng. heat will build up under the hood blanket and youll be forever replacing the driver.
