Easy to bypass on a diesel ,,if starter turns and its just the pump ,then to get to the valve/switch get a mini 4inch grinder and cut either side of the shroud on top of the pump so you have a piece about inch wide then cut best you can at the back bit ,wack with a decent cold chisel into the slots to remove ,underneath you will see a switch ,easy now find the 12v supply switchable from ign and connect it direct to this switch and off you go ...

Mercedes Benz 2002 - C240 - wont start.


Most parts stores will have a fuel pressure tester available. This is the best place to start, as presence of fuel at schrader valve does not tell you if pressure is correct. Hate to say it, but without proper test equipment you will have bad luck trying to troubleshoot newer cars. For spark, use a timing light, or a cheap inductive spark checker pen. I got my last one for less than $5.

too many possibilities, from fuel , to ignition,vacuum problems , position sensors , ignition switch

My car wont start, 1997 vauxhall astra 1.7 turbo diesel


This sounds like a problem in the fuel shut off circuit. When you turn the key on, it energizes the fuel shut off solenoid on the injection pump. When you turn off the key, power is removed and the pump is moved by spring to the fuel off position. Check for power at this terminal when you are having a problem, ( with the key on) If no power then I would check the wiring and connectors from this connection to the Ignition key. I believe it is wired direct. That can be checked at http://www.alldata.com/products/index.jsp

subscribe3 and get a wiring schematic for the car and see if it is wired direct to the ign switch of from a relay, I am sure it is a connection problem if you have no power.

A 1.7 diesel even if turboed, is dead slow in any vehicle let alone a van. Enjoy the fuel economy

good luck

Starting problem


If its a 2005 it will be common rail, so you have to be carefull when dealing with this engine. The common rail has extremely high pressures which can harm you, also the fuel injectors are capacitor discharged and are high voltage. Now thats aside, look at the high pressure pump at the front of engine. If the code on it ends in 018 then its fed by an electrical fuel pump. These fuel pumps can fail. if it has another number then the HPP draws its own fuel. The symptoms are air ingress into the fuel lines, causing the fuel to run back to the tank. Its probably worse in cold weather due to the contraction of the fuel pipes in the cold. Check all fast fit connections for security. A trick is to put grease on the connections, it wont last long but might give you an idea where the leak is.
