I have a daf LF45 2005 need to change fuel pump. does the engine have to be timed ,or can i just take it out

Makes no diff what the vehicle is, changing the fuel pump is not a part of any timing sequence unless it's the fuel injection pump on a diesel engine. Other than that, the fuel pump is actuated only by a bump/lobe on the cam. Nothing to time.

Daf truck xf95 430 wont start? only starts with quickstart

Diesel engines with faulty injectors, poor compression, poor valve seats etc can develop an appetite for starting fluid. Only a thorough investigation of the engine condition will sort these problems. Do this before you do anything else because diesel work is expensive.

VW Jetta vdi diesel won't start after eun out of fuel

There will be 2 reasons. Either the very low level in the tank allowed the pump to pick up some of the sludge that generally accumulates. This would mean a strip down and clean. The other is that you have developed an air lock. This is easier to cure but potentially a bit dangerous to health!! Where the fuel lines feed the injectors, loosen the nuts off, just a bit, to allow any air out. Put new fuel in and try and start the car. DON'T stand near the engine bay as the pressure it comes out of those lines can inject fuel through the skin!! Crank engine until you see fuel escaping on in engine bay. Tighten them up and try and start car properly. If it starts then turn it off and allow discharged fuel to evaporate. After this if it starts but runs "lumpy" chances are still have an airlock in one of the feeds to injectors. DO NOT DO THIS WITH A WARM ENGINE. Be careful of the fuel, at all times

2005 vw polo 1.9 tdi wont start

if it starts when you pour fuel in the intake.. then fuel is not reaching the tbi from the say you put a new fuel pump on this..did you bleed the fuel lines? if not do this because there is an airlock in those lines..either you need to open a fuel line at the tbi unit to bleed it all out.. or be looking at a clogged up fuel filter..

How can I eliminate an airlock problem in the diesel tank of a quantum? Every time i fill up there is a airlock?

check that the air bleed hose from the top of the tank up to the filler neck is not pinched ,squashed or blocked as it is apparently not letting the air to come out while the fuel is going in.

Ford fiesta diesel endura turn's over & try's

Normally, only 2 things stop a diesel from firing:
1. no fuel
2. not enough compression

No fuel can be caused by (obviously no fuel) or a failed fuel pump. To test, have someone turn the engine over and then sniff at the exhaust - does it smell of unburned diesel? (If you've run out of diesel recently, you may have an airlock in the system, this needs bleeding out.)

Not enough compression needs specialised equipment to test - that's a garage job.

When you get some fuel you can unscrew the fuel filter and fill it with diesel. Then put the filter back on without spilling the fuel.

There should be enough diesel to prime the motor and get rid of the airlock. Also with diesels make sure you are using the correct tank if you have a tank switch.
