Replacing the engine fuel filter on a 2005 E320 CDI is one of the easiest things you might consider doing yourself. It's located near the front of the engine right on top. You have to remove the plastic covers over the engine manifolds, (also easily done but don't lose the bolts that hold it on). Once you do that you'll see it right in front of you. The replacement part from MB comes with everything you'll need - O-rings, gasket, etc. Once you have the filter installed you have to "bleed" the air out of the system. The filter unit has a bleed screw on top. Just loosen it and crank the engine until all the air is out of the system, then tighten again.

Jeep diesel problems


Has the fuel filter been changed? It sounds like a fuel starvation problem. Not familiar with the Mercedes diesel I had a Dodge Cummins 24 valve diesel and had the same trouble when the fuel filter had gotten to dirty. Another issue could be the fuel pump itself is starting to go, not a usual problem but would cause the engine to cutout if it is not providing enough fuel. Which in turn would make it hard to to start after since there is not enough fuel in the system. Also check if there is a filter in the fuel tank could be plugged. Check the fuel also, see if it has started growing algae in the tank if this happens it will plug filters quickly. Good luck

Jeep will not start


First thing i would do is change the fuel filter. diesels need them changed more often then a gas engine. if that doesnt help it could be the injector pump\ fuel pump. pull a fuel line off somewhere at the engine ( at an injector ) have someone turn it over and make sure its getting fuel

Sluggish diesel engine


diesel fuel run in the winter is a lighter grade fuel to help is from freezing, and hard starting in the winter. You mnay have to replace the aircleaner. And may have to replace the fuel filter located on to of the engine, just under the air cleaner housing. The diesel fuel now sold in the summer is a little thicker and having a hard time getting thru the old fuel filter.

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

My 2005 Ford F 350 6.0 diesel starts quits runs quits. Goes a short distance stalls out hard to start again runs and stalls again. Also check engine light is on. Problem is getting worse after 3 days like...


Sounds like a compression leak from one or more injectors into the fuel system. I am guessing that you already changed both the frame and under hood fuel filters in the last 15,000 miles? Be sure the cap on the frame fuel filter is tight, any gap between the cap and housing can cause fuel to return to the tank instead of going filtered o the engine.

WARNING LIGHT CHECK ENGINE COMES ON ABOUT 5000 REVS LIFT OFF


your question before about fuel starvation may be correct. diesels have a habit of clogging fuel filters and spark plugs, they get overgapped. Try these items, if changed already, try looking up the engine light code, autozone does this for free, this will definetly lead you to the problem.
