Question about 2003 Renault Sportwagon
Looks like air in fuel (diesel) line car lurches as though someone keeps touching brake
Where do you see the air? If ther is air in the fuel, look on the suction side of the fuel pump all the way back to the fuel tank. Check every connection for tighhtness. If the hoses are old and cracked, replace them and the clamps.
Also for fun tighten the fuel pump lift screws if it is a mechanical pump.

Hi, before the pump it is a loose connection or maybe a pin hole in the pipe, check all the connections and pipes for seepage, after the pump it will be a leak, i knowit sounds the same but after the pump the fuel is under pressure. It would appear that your system drawing air rather than forcing air in. daveg

no it wont but a cloged fuel filter will increase the pressure from tank to filter and overload the amperage in fuel pump and posibly burnt fuse also check for bad engine mounts if engine moves while is under load it might contact some wires and burnt fuse

You should be able to re-route a new section of line w/out any trouble. If the line is leaking due to rust, you might want to replace all the lines at once, since the rest of the system is probably rusting away also. If you plan on keeping the truck for a while, all the more reason to replace it all. I must add, I hate those rusting brake lines! Did mine over 2 times on y 90 F-250, salt and snow plowing do a number on them.
