    Thanks John, I will give that a go & see if that helps.

  • Hi Peter, If the suggestions did not work I agree with you regarding the injector pump. I believe you should have the head and rotor replaced. The usual signs of wear on these parts is difficulty in starting and possibly a loss of power. Before removing the pump please inspect the whole fuel line for any leakage where the system may be sucking air. If you do need to work on the pump, I suggest the injector nozzles should be calibrated with the pump. Regards John

    John, We isolated the primer/water trap and diverted the fuel lines through the filter only and it started virtually right away. Idled a bit rough then the the fuel line filled with no air visable. I will leave it sit for a day or two to make sure the front seal on the injector pump is not leaking air. Fingers crossed :) Regards Peter

Hi Peter, If the vehicle turns on the starter all the time, and sometimes starts and other times fails, check the fuel filter for leakage. Sometimes air gets into the fuel system. When it gives problems, open the bonnet (hood) and have someone pump the pump on top of the filter housing. If it feels soft when beginning to pump, I would suspect either a leakage on the fuel line or the filter housing. If you need to replace the housing and filter, remember to fill the replacement filter with clean diesel fuel first. the glow plugs can also cause problems if one or more have burned out. Regards John

    Hi John, did all you suggested to no avail. Trying bypassing the whole filtering system to check for air ingress. Next step is the injector pump!!

SOURCE: I have a 2001 holden

possibly air trapped in hydraulic clutch system causes pedal to go low and hard like brake pedal,
bleed from bleed nipple on firewall (bulkhead) under bonnet, left side of vehicle then under neath at slave cylinder.
when left for a while or turn vehicle off it comes good again due to air in line shifts position
these can be tricky to bleed also due to pedal doesnt come up when bleeding must pull up with foot or hand do it slowly and pump it for a while before opening bleeder nipple again.
hopefully you put the clutch fork in the right way again if you replaced the thrust bearing and the bearing itself depending on engine configuration.

Ford focus tdci not starting and white smoke coming out of the exhaust


It is a clear case of the glow plugs malfunction. It had happened with my neighbor who tried to start his diesel focus one day.
Even jump starting with another battery didn't solve the starting problem.

You could also check the EGR valve for damages and if you want to save a couple of bucks, then go in for used parts for the focus from Good used Focus Stuff

If i understand you right the truck has been sitting for two years.If it has been sitting that long without running or moving the gas has turned to varnish...I suggest that you drain and refill the fuel tank,and replace the fuel filter located on/in the frame rail on drivers side.

Hi i have an Volvo 2001 s60 d5 turbo, i purchased it about 6 months and in board computer was showing in italian (motore necesita assist) but it was running well and it was starting very nice no sound no...


I would suggest trying to purge the air from the fuel lines by loosening the fuel lines at the injectors (if possible) and cranking the engine for a moment or two, then tightening the lines, try to start the car, if it starts, loosen the injector fuel lines again while it's running, one injector at a time, to purge any remaining air. I hope this helps, and good luck.

About 5 weeks ago after filling with diesel fuel the truck would not start. After about 15 minutes it finally started. It continued to run perfectly for the next 5 weeks until 2 days ago when it dropped...


Did you empty diesel out and just refill if so then you made a mistake which could have damaged fuel pumps

Diesels are suppose to be bled after refilling if have been run totally dry.
