You need to install an electric fuel pump to lift the fuel from the tank to the mechanical pump. You can turn off the electric pump after starting or use it when bleeding the lines after changing the fuel filter. You can start the truck after a few minutes instead of a few days. I know from experience and fought that problem for years.

Remove the old fuel filter prepare the new one check the O ring fitted good position fixed back don't over tight just by hand. if you have hand pump you can pumping don't forget to bead the system or start the engine keep going until engine start.

I have a 530D BMW 2005 model, I found that the diesel is mixing with the oil and giving off massive amount of white smoke. The diagnostic report showed glow plug cylinder 5 and 6. We did the service a


I am not to sure what u are asking here but I would say u need 2 glow plugs . I would be checking the dpf filter as that gives off a light colour smoke when trying to regen and if it can't regen that is where the fuel is getting in oil , modern diesels need to have long runs quite oftern driving around town blocks up dpf in the exhaust the car try's to regen using extra fuel to get it up to temp to burn off the soot inside it prob not running long enough to do it. If u got good diagnostic gear u can preform a regen stationary hope this helps

What do want to change the fuel filter for they never need changing here in europe as the fuel delivery pumps in the fuel stations have micronic filters inside the pumps ,europeon law so it shouldnt need changing unless it corrodes away that is if its a metal casing .Their is a gauze filter on the fuel pump inside the tank but if this motror runs ok leave well alone and stop playing around trying to a boy racer sunday mechanic job ,change the oil every 5/6000 miles with a oil filter every third oil change and use the cheapest diesel/petrol engine oil you buy ,gap the plugs every other oil change and it will run like a dream ,stick to putting a boom boom box in and stick go faster stripe and leave it alone

Hi John, These days most oils are formulated to be used in both petrol and diesel engines but those formulated specifically for diesels should not be mixed. If your talking of a top up I suggest a flush with a good quality chemical and a lub service. If you have had a service carried out and changed the type of oil the same applies. Mixing oils can cause fast sludge build up which can block the filter, oil pump and galleries. These days most oils are designed to run both types of engine, but mixing is neve a good idea. Regards John

I Need 2 Know What All I Need 2 Do For A Full Tune Up Cause I Just Bought THe Car From Somebody N I Want 2 Do A Full Tune Up


on a modern fuel injected car a tune up is pretty simple and i would consider a COMPLETE tune up as follows. 1: change the spark plugs and wires (make sure to properly gap the spark plugs and use some antisieze on the threads)
2: change the fuel filter
3; change the oil and filter
4: change the transmission filter and fluid
5; flush and re fill the cooling system with fresh antifreeze properly mixed with water
6: inflate the tires to the proper pressure listed on the tire decal located in the drivers door jamb area.
7: change the serpentine belt if it shows signs of cracking.
these steps should provide you with 3 things..1 a dependable, fuel efficient car 2: peace of mind knowing things are good under the hood and 3: many miles of driving.

I am driving a 2006 KB 250 fleetside, just over 101250km. This is my first diesel vechile and i`m abid worried about my fuel consumption. Done a trip to luderitz recently and used about 38 lts for 390 km...


The injectors have o-rings that will wear and cause fuel leak into engine and cause same smoke problem ,but glow plugs are only for engine firing.........you can change o-rings only but if it has lot of miles i would do injectors...
however make sure the fuel rail isnt leaking at injector connection.also check exhaust for excessive heat or noise inside cat.converter if you can shake it.....some come apart inside.....
it would be worth having the engine scanned to make sure 02 sensors are good..they control air/fuel mix and if oxygen level is incorrect it will burn more fuel and sometimes fuel scent but not very bad.

HARD METALLIC TAPPING ON JAGUAR XJ 2.7 DIESEL ESPECIALLY WHEN COLD OR AFTER BEING STOOD


hydraulic tappets by the sound of it ,three squirts of fairy liquid into engine oil and some diesel say about half a pint then run engine for a couple of days then when noise stops change the oil and filter ,if oil hasnt been changed for ages then when hot and ready to change add some more diesel say a litre then let engine idle for ten minutes and then drop oil .then change oil every 6000 miles with a oil filter every thrid oil change ,Use the cheapest oil you can buy say a 10/40 but even a monograde of 30 or 40 will do ,do not use expensive long life oil as it just causes the engine to clagg up inside bolcking the oil ways causing this sort of problem ,if in the uk then shell rotella is a reasonable priced oil and its a good oil

I just bought an 03 td4 gs freelander and the oil on the dip stick is black, this is my first diesel car so not sure if this is o. always had petrol and it's like golden syrup in them? :-)


diesel engines do run dirty if this was my car i would change the oil and oil filter as a mater of corse, at lest you will know its been done then, also change the fule filter and have a look at the air filter as well
diesels dont like dirty fule or partly blocked filters, for what they cost its well worth the effort if you have only ever run a petrol engine you will find that the diesel need more servicing more often if you leave it unserviced the engine wont last as long as it could so dont skimp on the servicing or you wont be saving pennies you will be spending pounds

Fuel filter


There is no need to change it frequently. If there is a loss of engine power or if throttle cuts out then may be its the time to change fuel filter. It is recommended by peugeot to change fuel filter (but depends on fuel purity) after every 36000 miles.

You can clean it yourself
Dipp the whole filter body in carosine oil tank and leave it in there for about 20-30 minutes
Pour some petrol in filter with the help of plastic piped and apply a slight air pressure (use a piece of pipe to blow) in the reverse direction (marked with arrows) of fuel supply to clear residue and heavy oil composite that clogged in filter.
Repeating the cleaning process 2-3 times will clean the filter to reuse it without the need of a new one to buy.

Probably has a plugged catalytic converter from the misfire that was on cylinder #2, which was indicated by the code. If you wanted to confirm the plugged cat, you could remove the precat O2 sensor and drive it. It will be noisy, but if you get an increase in power, you know you have a restriction
