The fuel motor is part of the fuel pump.
The fuel pump has a fuel sender also as part of the pump. I would have you fuel pump check and changed at you local shop.

I have a mercedes sprinter 313cdi van 03 model turbo diesel what parts on top of motor need to be removed so i can change the glow plugs


Shouldn't have to remove much to get at them. Does the glow plug lamp flash after the engine has started. I'm not sold on it being a glow plug issue, these engines start without them down to well below freezing without any real trouble, if it IS this its more likely to be a wiring issues rather than sudden failure of 4 glow plugs. Leak off pipes on the low pressure side, or an injection problem is more likely.

Why will car not start from key? Just turns over until battery drained, seems too sluggish to start


Has the fuel pressure been tested? Are you sure the ignition starter switch is ok and doesn't have an open that causes a stall out when the key is released. We do not have the diesel engine in this country so repair info is limited. You need to stop guessing and consult an expert, you have replaced parts that I would never replace for this kind of issue, a total waste of money and your time.

Replaced motor, starting hard. runs fine . how do I check fuel pressure


Doubtful you have a fuel pressure problem if the car runs well, poor starting can be a few things , poor air circulation air filter needs cleaning or replacing, poor injector flow warn injectors or just dirty fuel additive sometimes clears this , poor spark plugs not firing under pressure ok when started . for diesel cars you don't say what car it is , poor glow plugs . bad fuel filter , air leaks in fuel pump , poor injectors . and especially with diesel poor compression due to worn rings or head gasket failure . You may even have just have disturbed the engine earth strap when you replaced your starter motor .

1986 ford f350 won't start


The solenoid click sounds very strong, implying that you have a charged battery and the ignition circuit is functioning out to the solenoid. Suspect an issue with the starter motor. Is the starter motor installed and connected properly?

Alternator replaced. car fine until recently


You car is fuel injected. You should not need to pump the gas pedal to get it to start. If your check engine light is on you need to take it to a shop and have the codes read so you can see what the problem is and repair the problem. A change of fuel filter might help. Water in your diesal fuel may also be a source of your problem. A diesal motor works off of combustion and heat, there really isnt an ignition system in the car except for the glow plugs which heat things up prior to ignition. If it is taking 34 times to start the vehicle you may also have a glow plug issue. If these are not working properly you will never get this vehicle to start.

I really think you have a glow plug problem.

My toyota land cruser is poor to start first thing espesialy when its cold , I have replaced the glow plugs and fuel fillter


didyou replace the manifold heater?
have you checked the relay?have you checked to see if there is actualy power getting to the glow plugs? and also the fuse .
It is very srtange ,if the glow plugs are working ,for it not to fire up straightaway .Does it miss when it does first start?If so, the glow plugs are not all working.Last thing try giving it a squirt of aero start, or starter fluid , if with that ,if it doesn`t start straight away, then you better come back to me as i have another idea what could be a problem but I dont think the glow plugs are working properly so try the aero start first "youdoit"
