Kuga 2010 plate 2.ltr Diesel after doing the fuel filter it would not start , i had presumed that because there was on lift pump it would do it.
I spotted that there was air in the feed to the hp pump and after purging fuel from the tank through the filter and filling the line to the pump, tried again.
ran for 2-5 sec then died, it will not start now, code reader says that there is low pressure at the rail.
Is this the reason for none starting and if so how can i resolve it.
Testimonial: "Perhaps you did not read that I had blead the system up to the pump , so you were not helpful, however for further people how have suffered the same ,
Because of turning the engine over so many times the engine management really stuck therefore engine would not start a simple case of taking it off giving it a chap on the table and replacing . It worked for my mechanic"

This is a technique called spill timing line up the timing marks
remove the pipe to the injector on #1 Cylinder loosen the mounting / adjustment bots on the pump attach a spill cut off pipe (looks like a '?") use the lift pump to supply low pressure fuel. While pumping the lift pump turn the injector pump in the direction of rotation until fuel flows freely then turn the injector pump slowly and gradually against the direction of rotation till fuel stops. lock the pump in this position. this is correct timing
Diesel fuel tends to be sluggish to pump in cold weather and that is why some diesel cars and trucks have heaters in the fuel tank to overcome this problem. However I tend to think that the glo-plugs are not working as they should be. Have them tested . The fuel pressure fault may be the inability of the pump to pump enough fuel to do the job.
Most likely you just have air in the lines.Crack them open one at a time and bleed them with the fuel pump off and on till you get fuel.If it fires dont hit the throttle let it sit and idle and close the line.Does it fire up with a small whif of starting fluid?
P0216 DTC - Injection Timing Control Circuit Malfunction and this means the diesel fuel injection pump has a timing failure. This could be that the injection pump timing needs adjusted OR the failure is internal to the injection pump and therefore non-adjustable.
NOTE: If your vehicle is a Dodge Ram with Cummins engine then be aware that fuel delivery problems frequently cause this code. Prolonged fuel delivery problems can cause injection pump failure!
Symptoms of a P0216 DTC may include: Low power Crank, but no start Hard start Displays an intermittent stumble or miss Engine may start and then stall Engine may appear to drive fine but surge at idle
The most frequent cause of this code is a bad injection pump due to poor fuel delivery. Fuel delivery problems could be: A plugged diesel fuel filter An in-tank blockage Air in the fuel due to a cracked in-tank fuel ine above the fuel level Bad transfer (lift) pump Injection pump out of time
Possible Solutions: First, simply check if your injection pump timing is adjustable. If so, check the timing and adjust if necessary.
If you think that you may have a fuel delivery problem, then check the lift pump operation. On Dodge Ram with the Cummins engine, the lift pump should produce about 45 oz of diesel in 25 seconds of operation. This can be performed by disconnecting the fuel hose from the injection pump and pumping the fuel into an approved container. Bump the engine over but do not start it. Then the lift pump will operate for 25 seconds. If the fuel is aerated, then check/repair fuel line and recheck.
With the fuel hose connected the fuel pressure should be 10psi. If the fuel delivery tests fail, replace the diesel fuel filter and recheck.
If it still fails then verify there are no restrictions in the fuel tank
Then replace the lift (transfer) pump. IT SHOULD BE NOTED that if this code surfaced after a routine fuel filter replacement or if you have any of the above symptoms after routine fuel filter replacement, then suspect the fuel transfer pump. This occurs because even a weak transfer pump can still provide enough fuel for the engine to run. But when the fuel system\'s prime is lost due to fuel filter replacement, it may not restart again without fixing the fuel delivery problem.
If you found your injection pump to be bad, the lift pump should be checked for operation to protect the new injection pump. This is because weak or low output from lift pump are common cause of injection pump failure. There are some aftermarket kits that can be purchased to warn the operator when the fuel pressure/volume drops to level that could damage the injection pump.

duramax diesel trucks do not have a lift pump. start with the simple things make sure your fuel filter is tight and check the shreader vlave on the fuel rail if that don't help check the filter housing for a leaks arround the heater element or a crack in the housing itself
If you have the 6.0 ltr diesel, then check the bowl where the 2nd fuel filter is, see if there is fuel in the bowl, if not then either your fuel pump which is on the frame under the driver's side in the water seperator/ heater has gone bad, or your filters could be bad, or the fuse to the fuel pump or the pump shut off switch which is located on the side panel at your feet on the passengers side, there is a reset button, make sure it has not popped and press it down, hopefully this helps, I had the same prob.
