What model Frontera have you got?
Is it's a 2 litre Sport relatively straight forward, 2.2 a bit more complicated due to twin cam

Hi it's the 2.2 diesel. I am looking for someone who knows there round one of these. It has the fuel problem and I was hopping to get the fuel lines changed or at least sorted out. There has been some sort of non return valve fitted but I fear that this will be stressing the fuel pump when starting from cold. Thanks Ben
