Have you checked for power on the fuel shut-off solenoid on the injection pump? There are two wires to the pump. One is the fuel shut-off the other is the cold advance. Both should be hot with the key on when the engine is cold. Do you hear the glow plug relay clicking when you turn the key on?

I have a Ford Fusion 1.4 diesel 2010 when it is cold and i get to a junction the engine dies to a tick over i have to keep pressing the excelerater about 6 time before the engine picks back up.


Diesel engines are cold nature as a rule when first started and need a few seconds of running to wake up if you will. The pre-igniters must have a moment to get themselves hot enough to keep the engine running before starting as well. Turn the key on without starting it for just a second or two before continuing to start it will most likely help considerably.

I have a ford fiesta 2006 diesel manual car , last night when i start my its showa yellow light in the rpm metre and i try to increase the speed but its would not go more than 30kms and my car suddnlt


The light is the engine light and the reason that you cannot go fast is because the CPU is in limp mode. Check the oil and water levels and check engine operating temperature. Have the codes read to find the sensor that put the car in limp mode to protect the engine and gear box.

Ford diesel excusion A/C won't cool


Any performance testing re auto A/C requires consistant engine revs highway revs eg 1800 exit ramp eg idle stop start 800revs leading to much reduced A/C compressor speed and therefore performance output .Also all testing its desirable to close the bonnet to control design air flow through the engine bay .Also check under dash passenger side air flow pos a filter on return air duct or something sucked up into paper etc .good luck!

1994 powerstroke diesel wont start


no wait to start light is a good indication that you need to check you glowplug relay and harness. Make sure you have 12V in and out of the relay. Also if you can check to see if you have good continuity to ground through your glow plugs. This is kind of hard to do on this engine, sometimes it is OK just to check the AMP draw for the leff and right group of wires. Do this by putting an AMP clamp around all 4 wires to the left and right bank. Wait about 45 sec. for the relay to click off (if it clicked on) and then record the amps right before the relay turns off. Let me know what the amp draw is and I can check it against the spec sheet. Se you amp clamp above 100 amps, it might start around 60A and end up around 36A if I remember correctly.
