Not starting

Postby Dooley on Sat Mar 11, 2017 1:57 pm

I need help with my 2.5 tdi sport 97plate, she won't start, new batterie, starters fine, alternater fine, new glow plugs, leads in good order, egr cleaned with new gaskets, new/second hand pipes, new manual fuel pump that primes fine.
So I try to start it turns over for at least 5 to 10 seconds then starts but stalls almost immediately, I keep getting air in the manual pump breather bolt, I bleed then more appears, I've filled fuel filter with fuel, prime system so no more air bubbles and start again, same thing long turn over starts then stalls.
Is there a pump in the fuel tank could this be the problem?

I had a similar problem years ago on a pajaro 2.5, it was poures fuel lines letting air in. Replaced the lot from the tank forward with rubber line and it ran perfect I would suggest the same for yours

Also the fuel pick up line in the tank can perish and if the fuel level is below the point it's perished all you will get is air being sucked through.
Is there much fuel in her? May be worth getting some in with Jerry can
