This system should be self priming, however if it did run out of fuel, I highly recommend changing the filters.After doing so have an assistant turn key to run as you listen for fuel lift pump running,(under drivers side floor attached to frame, one of the fuel filters is part of pump,the other filter is on top of engine) Could have hurt pump by running dry. They are notorious for hard start after filter change and/or out of fuel.Hope this helps.

SOURCE: what oil should i use for ford mondeo turbo diesel

5 litres of Ford SAE 5w -30w (Formula E ) ...available from Ford (or sometimes a lot cheaper off Ebay).

If you try and use anything else,( eg 10w-30 etc)  then the turbo does not like it and the running becomes slightly sluggish

How to bleed the fuel system in the 2009 Mondeo after changing the fuel filter on a diesel

You don't. You just crank the engine until it starts. Modern vehicles work on a pressurised system with a return back to the tank. The fuel is pumped from the tank to the injectors and excess fuel is returned to the tank.

My ddiesel Cleo is dripping diesel from around tank erea put another jubilee clip round pipe that goes in to tank but still leaking anybody have any idears its a Clio 1'5 thanks

it may well be coming from the fuel lines or the tank sender unit seal , remove rear seat base and there will be a plastic cover , remove this and you will have access to the sender unit and fuel line , note the fuel line conection to the sender unit required particular pliers to remove without causing damage , you may well see there is a pool of diesel there so start engine and see if any diesel leak is visable and take the appropriate action ,there is also a anti theft type design to most fuel tanks, this being a small tank that if filled first when refueling, then the fuel transfers to the main tank so i'd check for that as well , usually behind wheel arch liner , hope this helps

How to repair 2008 ford F-350 diesel showing code P2033

code p2033 refers to exhaust gas temperature (EGT) sensor 2 bank 1 circuit high === causes wiring short to ground --EGT sensor . check the wiring for shorted / broken wires and replace the sensor . If there is no problem with the sensor or the new sensor fails early I would be checking the fuel settings on the pump ( pump timing and cc ratings ) as a hot diesel exhaust indicates over fuelling or pump timing too far advanced.

Fuel wont get to the fuel tank from the intake hose.

By "intake hose" are you referring to the filler neck? If it's not going in the tank, where IS it going? If it's not spilling out onto the ground, it can only be going into the tank. Is it possible that your gas gage on your dashboard isn't working properly? More information, please.

How do i put diesel into my ford mondeo from a diesel container when it has a security feature which prevents syphoning and therefore will not take a plastic nozzle??

You will find the diesel pump at the petrol station have slim nozzles that release the safety feature and the other petrol types a wider nozzle thus preventing you from putting the incorrect fuel in your tank. Your spare tyre compartment should contain a special funnel to use that releases the safety catch for you to fill from a can.

When you get some fuel you can unscrew the fuel filter and fill it with diesel. Then put the filter back on without spilling the fuel.

There should be enough diesel to prime the motor and get rid of the airlock. Also with diesels make sure you are using the correct tank if you have a tank switch.

Low Fuel Pressure on Landrover Freelander TD4

From 53 reg onwards, diesel pump is under R.H. rear wheel arch, hidden by the plastic wheel arch liner. Older versions have combined fuel pump/sender in the tank (under R.H part of rear seat).
You should be able to hear a faint purr from the pump when ignition is turned on but engine not yet running.

Need to find the fuel pump for a 1989 mercedes benz 300e

that particular model has an external fuel pump
is located underneath and if you take the rear driver side wheel you will get to it easier but not if you are going to replace you fuel pump replace the fuel filter also or otherwise the new pump will not last.
and have a large container handy because wend you take the fuel pump off. you will spill a large amount of gas .
the tube going from the pump to the gas tank in on the bottom of the tank and will spill all the gas in it unless you move quickly.
