Question about Ford Tempo
Hi as your engine is diesel then their is no electronic fuel pump so if you are getting no fuel and you have fuel in the tank then the only problem could be the pump.
if how ever you have ran out of diesel and have filled the tank up and still having problems starting then what your going to need to do is undo the fuel pipe on top of the injectors then you can either turn the engine over until you have fuel coming out the pipes or if you have a hand primer on the engine you can pump this until you have fuel coming out then tighten the pipe back up then it should start.
you could also undo the fuel pipe from the injectors just to check if you do actually have fuel their or not.
have you checked if the diesel filter is getting any diesel is the diesel filter full or empty, if its empty and you are sure their is fuel in the tank then this would point towards the pump being at fault.
dont rely on the fuel gauge being correct this could be faulty or stuck so it may be worth just putting some diesel in just to rule out having no diesel in the tank.
if you have ran out of fuel it will take ages for the fuel to pump through so undoing the diesel fuel pipes from the injectors will allow the fuel to pump through faster and once you have diesel coming out of these pipes it should then start first time when you have done them back up.
let me know if you have fuel after you have undone the fuel pipes, let me know if the diesel filter has fuel in the filter holder,
let me know how you get on or if you need further assistance ok
