2004 vw touareg 2.5 tdi the oil sump was full of water and oil mix,also inlet manifold had oil and water mix.number 5 cylinder had locked up and engine would not turn,so i removed glow plugs and cranked...

Can not be water pump, because that has a vent hole to the outside, and does not at all allow access to crankcase or cylinders. Oil cooler is also unlikely because oil is under more pressure than the water, and it would not get into the cylinder.
Water in the cylinder means up high.
That means head gasket or cracked head.
You can tell with a leak down test.
You borrow the gauge from a place like Autozone, and replace the water reservoir cap with it. Over pump it, about 30 psi. And watch for leaks. If same cylinder keeps filling, then you know where the bad gasket or head crack is. Diesels often crack heads. Not hard to do, but new head is not cheap. Probably $500 for part, $400 labor.

How do i fit glow plugs to a 05 jaguar s type 2.7D

Not the easiest of jobs. Remove the engine cover. then remove the oil filter housing wich is the black plastic cylinder with the 32mm nut on top.

You should then see the glow plugs to the left and right of where the oil filter was situated. There is a plastic strip that clips onto the 3 glow pugs on either side of the engine. Remove that and you should then see the glow plugs remove and refit in reverse order

What kind of diesel engine in a 1984 Ford Econoline Class C RV? Are these engines known for head gasket problems and should a rebuild have fixed that?

What you have is a Navistar 6.9L Diesel engine in your van-RV.
They are know to blow head gaskets----nomally its a matter of taking the heads off --clean everthing --check for unusual large crack in the glow plugs pre-cups, check heads for flatness and than slap the heads back with new head gaskets.
This engines if the normal maintenance was done regularily they will do a easy 300,000 miles--with the head gaskets replaced when needed.
the easiest way to check for this is look for bubbles in the coolant resorvoir bottle with the engine running.
Also the other most important thing is make sure that the cooling system is clean--means new coolant on schedule and radiator removed and have it rodded --cleaned out.
You can tell if it needs rodding by draining a little coolant -enough that you can see the tube ends thru the radiator cap neck --to see if they are plugged or open.

2004 Ford f-250 6.0 Liter Diesel will crank but engine won't start. Then the next day it will start.

Hi, i would first try replacing the glow plugs as if you have problems starting from cold then this is the cause you can usually tell if it is the glow plugs if after running it up till temperature then turn it off and then start it again strait away if it starts fine when upto temp then this indicates that the glow plugs need replacing.
If it still has the problem when upto running temp then the chances are the fuel lines and injectors need cleaning.
You can buy a fuel additive and using this will solve the problem just pour it into tank then give it a good run about 3 hours then see what its like at starting if this solves the problem then i would put this into my fuel once every couple of months.
If on the other hand you still have problems then the chances are it could be either the diesel pump failing or could be even worse like head gasket.
If this is the case then this will need testing at a garage as they have testing kits to test if their are any gasses getting into the water system this indicating a head gasket problem.
If you need further assistance then post back.
Hope this is some help to you

Oil in coolant and engine will turn over and will not start...2005 Ford F450 Super Duty 6.0 Diesel

oil in the coolant generally indicates a blown head gasket. If the head gasket is blown, oil and coolant could be getting into the cylinders. You should have a mechanic check it out. I don't know a whole lot about dianosinng diesels. If you can get the glow plugs out, turn it over and see it any water or oil blows out of the holes.
