Question about 2005 Ford Fusion
I have a 2000, Hiace powervan 2.4. diesel I drove it today aprox 1 mile then parked it for 40 minutes. when I tried to restart it the engine turns over quite fast without firing. a little like a petrol engine without the spark plugs in place I suspect maybe the cam belt. Any help would be good

Have you replaced the timing belt? if not i would highly recommend doing so. these cars need to have the timing belt replaced before it breaks otherwise it can and will cause major engine damage.

SOURCE: quits no spark for a while
It is most likely the thin wire that hangs off the side of the distributor. They often short out and have cracked insulation allowing them to short out. You can get a spark tested and connect it to on of the spark plug wires and crank the car and look for spark. If no spark there, check for spark at coil wire. If you have there but not at plug, you know the problem is between the primary and secondary system-meaning most likely the cap and/or rotor in the distributor or bad wire previously mentioned. Have you changed the cap and rotor yet? These are inexpensive and will often solve the problem especially when the problem is when it is damp outside. The problem is not the fuseable links on the shock tower, like the other person mentioned. It probably is a loose wire somewhere like the distributor wire.

Ok well the glow plugs on a diesel have nothing to do with the engine firing. All the glow plugs do is heat up the combusion chamber on cold starts. Diesel engines fire using high compression. An oxygen sensor won't cause the vehicle to not start and your diesel doesn't have one of those anyways. It could be a fuel related issue. (pump, line, pressure etc.) Have you it scanned for engine DTC's? But based on your knowledge of your diesel vehicle i'm going to suggest you take it to a shop.
