Hi, My brothers 250 had the same problem and is now fixed.The fuel pump in each tank has a check valve that allows the fuel to run in one direction only. When this valve fails to close fuel runs into that tank when the other pump is running. We replaced the pump and all is well. Dan

SOURCE: Rover 200 overheating

Check the usual things: like a stuck thermostat, a slipping water pump belt and a clogged radiator.  Then check that the cooling fans are turning on...they consist of a temp sensor, a relay and the fan motors.  If all these are correct brace yourself for a blown head gasket.  This is indicated by exhaust smell in the coolant and a lot of pressure in the cooling system.

SOURCE: Fuel leaks from rear tank to front.

The leaking from one tank to another was covered by a recall from Ford. Not sure if they still foot the bill for installation of the required check valves. These are still available from the dealership. The rear one is the hardest to install. The check valve can be installed without pulling the rear tank. As for your front sender I would clean all of the connections to the sender and make sure it has a decent ground. If it still only reads at the 1/4 tank level you will have to replace the sender to rectify the problem.

My ddiesel Cleo is dripping diesel from around tank erea put another jubilee clip round pipe that goes in to tank but still leaking anybody have any idears its a Clio 1'5 thanks

it may well be coming from the fuel lines or the tank sender unit seal , remove rear seat base and there will be a plastic cover , remove this and you will have access to the sender unit and fuel line , note the fuel line conection to the sender unit required particular pliers to remove without causing damage , you may well see there is a pool of diesel there so start engine and see if any diesel leak is visable and take the appropriate action ,there is also a anti theft type design to most fuel tanks, this being a small tank that if filled first when refueling, then the fuel transfers to the main tank so i'd check for that as well , usually behind wheel arch liner , hope this helps

Water is constantly getting into my diesel. There are no leaks in the diesel tank. Can you suggest where the water is coming from

I'd bet your tank Cap seal is not good. Lots of rain? And or moisture is condensing inside the tank. Another thing to check is the fuel return line from the injection pump to the tank is properly sealed. Water in injection system is deadly especially to the pump. So find the problem soon. you may want to put "fuel dryer" (methanol) to remove any residual water. Oh, Did you stop along the way? Is the cap locked? Or lid locked. With that much water you may have had some vandalism. Any enemies?

Oh wise ones...please help me. I have a 2001 Land Rover Discovery II LE-7. Where is the fuel pump located and what is the process for changing it? Thank you in advance. Have a Great Day!

The fuel pump, like all vehicles these days, is located inside the fuel tank. To replace most of them, you have to drain and remove the fuel tank. Luckily for you, yours can be accessed from the top by removing the carpet etc. from the rear cargo area.

200 freelander diesel bmw engine wont start

The Freelander diesel is notorious for Fuel pump failure, most commonly the one in the tank, access is via under the back seat, Pump replacement is an easy job but get an aftermarket pump as the OEM units are pricey. Fuel pump life seems to suffer if you drive around most of the time with a low tank level, say 1/3 or less, or if the good lady screws up and fills it with blokes would never do that would we??
A quick roadside fix is to vigously pound the underside of the fuel tank with a flat mallet, even a fist...not a hammer as you'll dent the tank...that should jump the pump into operation for a while to get you home
Good luck, David

Low Fuel Pressure on Landrover Freelander TD4

From 53 reg onwards, diesel pump is under R.H. rear wheel arch, hidden by the plastic wheel arch liner. Older versions have combined fuel pump/sender in the tank (under R.H part of rear seat).
You should be able to hear a faint purr from the pump when ignition is turned on but engine not yet running.

Fuel leak

Check the flexible tube between the tank and the filler cap and the outlet hose from the tank. It's probably a slow drip which means it's leaking all the time though.

1999 landrover range rover 2.5 diesel put petrol

I would start by looking for the valve on the fuel rail (or at the filter housing), if you disconnected the fuel pipe from the filter feed you will have a lot of air in the system (and diesels do not like air in the feul system) you will need to have someone crank the motor over while you push in on the schrader valve to release the air out of the system until you get fuel to flow steady out of that port (this may take a short period of time), then you should be able to start the vehicle... would also recommend replacing the fuel filter as well. Hope this helps.

Strong Diesel Smell inside HJ Turbo Diesel Landcruiser

Since you didnt notice any change in the performance of your engine, ill presume there's nothing wrong with your fuel injectors.
look for moisture around your gas tank cap, the hose and clamps going down the tank, around the fuel gauge sending unit of your tank. have your fuel line checked from the tank to your fuel injection pump, give particular importance around the connections of your fuel filter, fuel pump, and the return hose from your fuel injection going back to your tank.
Diesel do emit strong hazardous odors that may stick on carpets inside your car.
