MB c220cdi 2002 engine stops

Have a problem. When My MB tank is full of diesel, car is very good to drive. But when fuel level become about 25% of tank - engine stops, especially somewhere when car is not running - traffic light for egz. Looks like fuel system sucking air, because before engine stops, I feel little vibration in engine for second.

What do I need to do to get rid of the water in the fuel system?


Hi is it a diesel or petrol fuel ? On diesel ther is usually a drain tape on the bottom of fuel filter . But if that won't work siphon out the fuel tank or remove tank both job not clean and need good bit a clear space, Quickest and leanest would be to use a vacuum pump the ones used to the oil out of engines, but they can only hold about 6Lts so if tank is full you will Nee need empty container for fuel

NO POWER ON MY 2007 F650 . RAN OUT OF FUEL AND EVER SINCE THE TRUCK DRIVES 25 MPH ONLY. CHECKD FILTER OK.


YOU STATED YOU CHECKED YOUR FUEL FILTER. YOU CAN'T JUST LOOK AT IT. DIESELS REQUIRE FUEL ON DEMAND. IF YOUR FUEL FILTER IS NOT FLOWING THE REQUIRED AMOUNT OF FUEL YOU WILL NOT GET THE PERFORMANCE FROM IT. THERE HAS TO BE A FUEL RESTRICTION THERE SOMEWHERE. CHANGE THE FUEL FILTER OUT WITH A NEW GOOD QUALITY FILTER. ON CAT DIESEL ENGINES A CAT PRIMARY FUEL FILTER WILL OUT FLOW A GENERIC FUEL FILTER EVERY TIME. TRUST ME, YOU HAVE A FUEL RESTRICTION PROBLEM. YOU GOT TO THE BOTTOM OF YOUR FUEL TANK AND SUCKED UP SOME GARBAGE TO FINISH THE FILTER OFF. FUEL FILTERS IN DIESELS SHOULD BE CHANGED EVERY 15,000 MILES AT MINIMUM. I RECOMMEND EVERY 10,000 TO KEEP PERFORMANCE AT PEAK LEVELS.

Had some gas in a can, so i poured maybe a gallon of it in my tank to make it to station. then found out it was diesel fuel. i only drove it a block and noticed it tryin 2 boggle out on me so i parked it....


Diesel should not hurt your car as long as you did not put to much in your tank. I would recommend that you buy a good bottle of octane booster dump it in your tank then fill it up with a high octane full like 91 octane. That should make up for the difference. Your car may smoke a little bit until all of the diesel is out of your system but it should be fine after that. I hope this helps and if you have any other questions please feel free to ask.

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 petrol...us 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

Fiat doblo 1.9 diesel year 2007. engine stop when low fuel tank


There is a possibility that your fuel transfer pump has quit and fuel is getting to your engine by gravity only. Have your tranfer pump flow rate tested. Also renew your primary fuel filter.

Have the diesel version 1996 e class. something


With the diesel engines you have to let the ignition coil warm up before you will have any luck cranking it. Diesel cars are no good in subzero temperatures. I had the same problem with my 92 300D Turbo and when i took it to MB they told me it was because i wasnt letting the coils heat up long enough.

I have put 8 litres of diesel in my 2005 renault scenic i have topped it up with 25 litres of petrol and run it for about 20 miles so far will this be ok once the the tank is empty


The 8 liters of diesel mixed with the 25 liters will make the vehicle smoke a little but if you continue to dilute the diesel/petrol mixture with petrol as your tank level goes down you should have minimal problems. When the tank gets to half you should refill it with petrol for at least two times. The main two problems I could think of that would cause you any concern would be the fuel filter getting partially plugged and the injectors gumming up. By continuing to dilute the tank with petrol you should be okay because the filter and injectors will clean themselves up while you drive. Just make sure you do not take any short drives. Let the engine warm up to operating temperature until you have ran at least two complete tanks of petrol through it.

Gas gage constantly says full when it's not!


Unfortunately this is most likely the fuel pump module, which includes the fuel level sensor also. This should be diagnosed more thoroughly with a scanner, a good scanner will be able to check instrument cluster separately to confirm the gage is working right,and check for trouble codes that may not light any warning lamps. Hope this helps. Rate me please.P.S. Dont use that fuel station any more.
