You will need to have a diagnostic test on this vehicle which will then provide you some error codes.Then once you get the error code you can start looking where the fault is.Hope this helps.

SOURCE: 1999 f350 diesel engine shut down, turns over but

that fuse powers pcm fuel heater and some other things. when the fuse blows the pcm shuts down. causing it to not run. usually its the heater that is bad. it is located at the back driver side by the fuel pump. you can unplug it and see if it starts. if so you will need to replace the heater

SOURCE: check engine Light won't come on crank but no start

A common problem with this type of condition is the crank shaft position sensor. A defective sensor will not allow the engine to run.

There is supply of diesel fuel from the lnjection pump but it seems no diesel going inside the chamber,,

Not enough information. What vehicle? What year? What kind of injection system? There are basically two kinds of diesel injection - injector pump and common rail.
I did notice you talking about an injector pump, but both these systems need a high compression pump to operate the injectors. On the older systems, the injector pump is connected via a gear system to either the crank or the camshaft, and its task is to supply fuel to the injectors in very much the same way as a distributor does on a petrol car.
Now, do you mean the header pump that supplies diesel to the injector pump, or do you mean there is diesel coming out of the injector pump between the pump and the injectors?
On the other system, which I assume you are talking about, diesel is supplied to a high pressure pump which keeps a rail at high pressure. All the injectors are connected to this rail - from there the name "common rail" - and the timing is supplied by the Engine Control Module (ECM) via electrical impulses. Now ,if you have diesel supplied to the common rail but the injectors are not popping, the problem is most likely with the ECM.
However, there is no way of helping you unless you supply more information.

How do I find out why my fuel makes it to tank is straitht wired to injectors but it wont start,that is why we think it could be a sensor.

Your tank cannot be wired to the injectors. The fuel must come through a pipe, not a wire. If it is a diesel, the fuel must go from the tank to the fuel pump, from the fuel (header) pump to the injector pump, from the injector pump to the injectors
It might be a common rail engine, in which case the fuel will go to the pressure pump and from there to the common rail which is connected by pipes to the injectors, The injectors will then be "fired" by the ECM unit. If this is the case, and you suspect a sensor, there are two or more sensors. The first one is the crank angle sensor mounted somewhere near the flywheel, and the other is the cam angle sensor (or two), mounted somewhere on the front of the engine, near the camshaft.

How do i bleed the air out of the diesel fuel filter on my 2003 C3 1.4hdi?

There is a prime bubble like a small rugby ball on the fuel line coming from the tank. Prime that slowly a few time's will get the air out. It will now take a lot of cranking the engine to get it going. The high pressure pump needs to build up 200 lbs pressure before the injectors will open. Keep cranking it will start. Your next problem is the engine managment light. This will come on because of the low rail pressure. It won't effect the car running but will need a plug in to remove the fault and put the light out.

My mitsubishi L2 4d56 diesel engine common rail direct injection have not start because there no spraying diesel in the nozzel tip,what is the problem of this?

the injectors arte electronically controlled so check the immobiliser. cam crank position sensors. run fault codes. I nothing shows up have an accredited diesel specialist shop check the pump as there may be a high pressure problem ( pump failure-- common in common rail diesels as they will not tolerate dirty fuel, water and some additives in the fuel)

Where is diesel cut off switch located on laguna 1.8

what makes you think there is one.

the FSM (factory service manual) covers this , 100%

buy one new or used.

check fuses first.

why does wiki say there is no Generation II Laguna with 1.8L diesel.

but shows, x6 , 1.9L

all are F9Q-xxx engines. 1,870 cc

so what matters is exactly which of the 6 F9s you have.

all have Direct injection, and works more like gas car than diesel.

but says>

The diesel-fuel is delivered either by a mechanical injection pump or a common rail fuel injection installation.

my guess is common rail.

is it>?

the first job is to check all fuses.

the make sure filters are clean (done)

then make sure the glow plugs all work.

if all that works, then using the proper scan tool see if the PCM

is throwing DTC codes (say for crank or cam sensors)

crank for 5 second scanning. got DTC errors?

if that is ok, fuel pump pressure is key next step.

the next step are the injectors actually firing electrically.

how is that.?

2001 Dakota wont start. Died at a red light and would not start back up. Check for trouble codes but had none.

You don't say what size engine you have, but the two most likely candidates for imminent failure would be the crankshaft sensor or the fuel pump. If you have fuel pressure at the rail, then I'd replace the crank sensor fist, as they are common failure items.

I ran out of diesel in my 2005 Audi a3 now car wont start and the oil pressure light comes on when i try to start engine, should i take it to a garage?

You should be able to cycle the key on and off a number of times to prime the fuel rail. The oil light is always on when you first crank the engine. If it doesnt shut off as soon as the engine starts...yeah, that is good cause for shutting it off and getting a mechanic to check it out.

If you can find the valve on the fuel rail you can check for pressure *(and possibly purge the air out of the rail by pushing the valve and burping off the trapped air)
