This is a general answer, but it might help. Diesel engines suck the fuel from the tank, so it is possible that one of your lines or fittings has a small hole, or is somehow letting air in. Check the lines for corrosion, kinks etc. and check/tighten any fittings from the tank forward. Good luck!

Bleed deisel fuel lines

On the top of each injector were the fuel goes in there is a nut that you turn anti clockwise about half a turn, this is called cracking the line. This can be done with the motor running (if it will) or as you are pumping the lifter pump if motor wont run. You should see diesel squirting from the top of the nut, when it looks like a good stream with out any bubbles tighten the nut back down. This is done to each injector, if you are doing this with the lifter pump just get some diesel to the injectors and then try to start motor as this is best done with the motor running as you get better pressure.

I had the same problem, have you checked all your fuses. My problem ended up being the heater circuit for the fuel bowl was shorted. I unplugged it. You might need it if you live in Alaska.

Started ran for 5 sec then stopped may be a deisel problem , checked manual said there is a cut out button only on petrol.! found one off the small return pipes came loose top of injector but seems no...

Check your manual for Bleeding the system. Sounds like you have air in the fuel lines. Look in your manual also at Changing your fuel filter. It will
explain the right way to get the air out. Did the manual say where the cut out switch was??? That would be the switch that shuts the fuel off to stop the engine.

2003 Jetta TDI deisel fuel filter change

Fill the filter with ATF, if no diesel fuel is handy. The T section with double o rings and a hair clip was removed, pour ATF in the resultant hole until it was full. Remove the clear line from the filter to the pump by disconnecting it at the filter. With a thin tube fill the line with ATF fluid until no bubbles remained. Reconnect the clear line to the filter. The car should start immediately.

Ford focus 1.8 turbo deisel 1999.

do not understand you what you mean. assuming your car was ok before you changed f/filter you need to bleed the fuel system of air. esiest to do would be to loosen fuel line at the injectors and have assistant crank the engine while you observe for clear fuel leak without any air bubbles from fuel line.tighten fuel lines and start engine. might have to repeat a few times. good luck.
