They replaced my car with new battery but still stalling - no power at all. What do you think is the problem?


power?

electrical power, as in dim lights
or engine power, like you can go up a hill fast wide open throttle
is it just quick loss of engine power or constant.
hot engine cold engine or both.?

stalls come on may ways.
1: lost DC electrical power lost to EFI system.
2: lost compresson, fails hot?
3: lost spark , try a 60k mile tuneup now, if skippped, they are critical.
4: bad fueling

there are simple tests for each failure path./
do you want to, do you have tools, ???? or just want guessing../?????

ok , i will guess, warning all of mine are wrong.
1: the Fuel pump regulator is bad stuck wide open and fuel pressures

Transit tipper 05 won't start first time when cold I have just had a Diesel pump fitted for 600 pound as this fault was coming up but it still does exactly the same it will start if it is warm but after...


With a Diesel there are additional parts that you have which affect the Cold start. There is a timer between the glowplugs and the Power relay on the start circuit. The timer cycles the glowplugs off/on for a variable time period. The more cold, the longer the cycle period.
Glowplugs go bad. You remove them like sparkplugs. Testing them is a matter of comparison. When power is applied they can melt, so test with care. Hook battery jump cables to each glowplug taking care to attach one lead to the base (avoiding the threads) and then briefly touch the top of the glowplug.
The quicker the plug glows, the better it is. The darker, the worse it is.
But the timer must provide the juice to the glowplug for it to work. A bad timer will not properly heat the glowplugs. The timer must get its' power from the Power relay. So you can have acceptable glowplugs, and a bad timer.
Ultimately once the engine cylinders have run hot enough, a Diesel fires by compression and not by spark as a gas motor does. That is why once you have a hot diesel, it will start freely.
It is why I explained the needs of a Cold Diesel engine and I hope this helps you.
