Espace wont satrt with starter motor but starts on a bump or easy start!

2002 2.2 dci espace fuel problem!
Have replaced the high pressure fuel pump due to it braking down and putting filings around the fuel system! Have also blew out the fuel lines and emptied the fuel tank and put £30 of brand new diesil through it and changed the fuel filter! Car winds over but wont start it starts on a bump and drives all day as soon as you turn it offf and try and start it again it just winds over until thr battery goes flat! A renault mechanic has told me it could be the injectors or primary pump! Im £1500 pound down and need help! I can hear the primary pump buzzing as soon as the ignition goes on! Ive tried everything it just wont start normally but starts on a bump! Could it be the injectors have been damaged with the metal filings from the old high pressure fuel pump braking down?

Hello please help...
I have w reg renault espace and there is air in the fuel pipe and when i pump it it works but i need to get the pipe off now to get the air out compleatly?
How do i get the pipe off as its hard plastic and it wont start even when i pump all the air out now. A neigbour suggested to let the fuel pump out the air and that will solve the problem?
Is there a place where the tube will click off easily ?
Please help its costing me so much money ?
I have had a new battery amd glow plugs and it checked out i was told this is the problem ?
Please help as soon as possible thank you x

    If it is the immobiliser problem and the key has not disabled it properly, try to reprogram the key by doing the following:
    1. Put the key in the ignition and turn it on.
    2. Disconnect the black battery lead
    3. Reconnect the battery lead.
    4. Take the key out.

    This worked for me. fingers crossed.
    5. Bingo!

Van wont start, and i replace the starter. you can hear the fuel pump when you turn the key, and it has sparks


Just because you hear the fuel pump run does not mean you have correct pressure at the injectors. Use test gauge to make sure. Have you run compression test to make sure timing belt has not broken?

How do you bleed a diesel pump jeep Cherokee turbo diesel 3.1 5 cylinder 2001


we dont have this engine here, USA.
but i have the WG jeep book,
starting page 12 , chapter 14


FUEL INJECTION PUMP BLEEDING
(1) If the fuel injection pump has been replaced,
air should be bled at the overflow valve before
attempting to start engine.
(a) Loosen the overflow valve (Fig. 18) at the
rear of the injection pump.
(b) Place a towel below the valve.
WARNING: WHEN CRANKING THE ENGINE TO
BLEED AIR FROM THE INJECTION PUMP, THE
ENGINE MAY START. PLACE THE TRANSMISSION
IN NEUTRAL OR PARK AND SET PARKING BRAKE
BEFORE ENGAGING THE STARTER MOTOR.
CAUTION: Do not engage the starter motor for
more than 30 seconds at a time. Allow 2 minutes
between cranking intervals.
(2) Crank the engine for 30 seconds at a time to
allow air trapped in the injection pump to vent out
the fuel injector drain tubes. Continue this procedure
until the engine starts. Observe the previous WARNING
and CAUTION.
(3) Tighten overflow valve.
HIGH-PRESSURE FUEL LINE BLEEDING
WARNING: THE INJECTION PUMP SUPPLIES HIGH-
-PRESSURE FUEL OF APPROXIMATELY 45,000 KPA
(6,526 PSI) TO EACH INDIVIDUAL INJECTOR
THROUGH THE HIGH-PRESSURE LINES. FUEL
UNDER THIS AMOUNT OF PRESSURE CAN PENETRATE
THE SKIN AND CAUSE PERSONAL INJURY.
WEAR SAFETY GOGGLES AND ADEQUATE PROTECTIVE
CLOTHING AND AVOID CONTACT WITH
FUEL SPRAY WHEN BLEEDING HIGH-PRESSURE
FUEL LINES.
WARNING: DO NOT BLEED AIR FROM THE FUEL
SYSTEM OF A HOT ENGINE. DO NOT ALLOW FUEL
TO SPRAY ONTO THE EXHAUST MANIFOLD WHEN
BLEEDING AIR FROM THE FUEL SYSTEM.
Bleed air from one injector at time.
(1) Loosen the high-pressure fuel line fitting at
the injector (Fig. 19).
(2) Crank the engine until all air has been bled
from the line. Do not operate the starter motor
for longer than 30 seconds. Wait 2 minutes
between cranking intervals.
(3) Start the engine and bleed one injector at a
time until the engine runs smoothly.

pump timing is on next page
or tank filter line priming before. above.

Car wont start not the battery


Starter switch, starter relay, or starter motor. If it cranks, but don't start, check fuel pressure. If pressure is not good, then replace fuel filter, fuel pump relay, and/or fuel pump (in that order) If fuel pressure is ok, then its ignition. check and/or replace coil or igniton module.

The engine turns over but it won't start.


Unfortunately the F9Q (1.9 DCi) has 3 common faults, these are as follows

1. MAFS Mass air flow sensor - this will cause initially hesitation but eventually make the car really slow as the turbo waste gate will no longer open.

2. EGR - Exhaust gas recurcultion valve - a result fro the forementioned, the MAFS failure causes high carbon build up, this sticks to the valve and siezes it open, this causes an inlet pressure fault code

3. In-line fuel pump - this pump is a 3bar pressure pump that really plays up then gives up the ghost, hence *non starter* it could be hidden away somewhere on the chassis, you need to look for it, it could be mounted under an wheel arch etc. It is about 5" long and 2.5" diametre, it is inline so a pipe at either end and 2 wires going to it.

I bet my last dollar thats what is up. It fits in with what you said.

Let me know if UK I may help more

Merry Christmas

Renault espace starting problems


I have a 2000 Espace and for years it has suffered from a non-start problem. It can be fine for ages and then, suddenly, there's nothing when you turn the ignition, not even a click. All instruments light up. It's not the battery. Does this sound familiar?

In my case, time and time again it has been what they call the 'firewire' connection on to the starter - the connection becomes corroded over time and fails to pass sufficient voltage.

If the terminal becomes too badly burned, where the voltage has arced because of a poor connection, apparently the only solution is to fit a new starter motor. But so far, in my case, it's just needed a clean of the connector and terminal.

By the way, holding the ignition key in the ON position for some time (30 seconds or more) can sometimes cause it to fire up.
