Does a toyota hilux surf 1995 diesel have spark plugs and points as in the days of yore??


Diesel engines don't have spark plugs. They use compression and heat to fire the diesel. Most diesel engines have glow plugs which are designed to preheat the combustion chamber to help burn the diesel fuel when you start it up. Hope this helps.

Firing order for a ford 250 2004 6.0 diesel


Diesel engines do not have a firing order. They run off of compression and not spark.

Surf 1KZ-TE Diesel wont fire


Typically, the glow plug light not coming on indicates that you have some bad plugs or poor connection. You need to replace the plugs and check the wire connections. It is interesting how picky diesels are when they aren't warm.
Hope this helps.

Ford fiesta diesel endura turn's over & try's


Normally, only 2 things stop a diesel from firing:
1. no fuel
2. not enough compression

No fuel can be caused by (obviously no fuel) or a failed fuel pump. To test, have someone turn the engine over and then sniff at the exhaust - does it smell of unburned diesel? (If you've run out of diesel recently, you may have an airlock in the system, this needs bleeding out.)

Not enough compression needs specialised equipment to test - that's a garage job.

I have a 2004 excursion diesel drove it all day stoped at a clients turned it off for 20 min came out and wont start the starter is going but its just not firing could it be a fuse I dont smell fuel but I...


Ok well the glow plugs on a diesel have nothing to do with the engine firing. All the glow plugs do is heat up the combusion chamber on cold starts. Diesel engines fire using high compression. An oxygen sensor won't cause the vehicle to not start and your diesel doesn't have one of those anyways. It could be a fuel related issue. (pump, line, pressure etc.) Have you it scanned for engine DTC's? But based on your knowledge of your diesel vehicle i'm going to suggest you take it to a shop.
