Hi! You may want to check on the fuel filter. The fuel filter may be rusty that may clog the fuel flow. Please write back on the progress. Hope this helps and thank you for using FixYa!

It seems strange that the car stalls in periods. I think the possible areas to check are:
1. Check if the fuel was good that was loaded , any impurities or water.
2. If there is air lock this can happen . So after fitting the new pump does it take in air from a loose joint of the new fuel line you have put in or the joint at the tank..
3. Check the new pump by itseld , being new can also be faulty to give problems so maybe a check up /calibration
the fault seems evident to be a fuel block.

Landrover tdi 110 fuel pressure non start


When you run a diesel engine out of fuel ,it needs to be primed in most cases,see if you can locate the fuel filter and and fill it with diesel fuel,And depending on the yr and make, your engine could be demanding higher pressure then you would think is normal from your lift pump in the tank.

I accidently poured 5 gallon of road desiel in my 06 hybrid. how do i get the diesel out?


Well, the good news is that filling a gasoline engine with diesel is not as bad as using gasoline in a diesel engine. There is likely no permanent damage.The bad news is that you're probably looking at several hundred dollars (perhaaps up to $500) to drain the fuel tank and engine and
flush the fuel lines. If the diesel gummed up the spark plugs and filters, they'd probably need to be replaced, but those are minor costs.
First, you won't be able to easily drain the fuel tank. I don't think
they put drain plugs on the tank as most imports do. The best way to
get the fuel out would be to remove the fuel line, extend it with a
rubber hose or something, and run power to the fuel pump. The best
place to do this would probably be at the fuel filter. The electric
fuel pump will pump enough fuel out of the tank to allow the engine to
start. It would be a good idea to run the tank dry, fill it with
another gallon of gas or so, then use the pump to remove that
gas/diesel mix also. Fill up with gas and you'll be fine.
As to replacing parts, or aving parts destroyed by the diesel, I don't
think that will happen. You might wanrt to change the fuel filter,
but even that wouldn't be mandatory.
Since your car is fuel injected and the fuel runs in a "loop" (the
injectors get fuel pessure from the in tank fuel pump, and the excess
pressure is fed back to the tank) any residual diesel will be flushed
out of the lines almost immediately. Just run the fuel pump with a
bypass without starting the engine, just like you did to drain the
fuel. As it runs it will circulate fuel through the loop and clear
out any diesel in the fuel loop. The engine should then start up
immediately.
One downside you MIGHT experience: the "honeycomb" catalytic
converters used by Jeep and many others are quite sensitive to
clogginbg with carbon, oil deposits, etc. Although in all probability
you haven't done any damage to the cat. conv. this is a good reason to
get as much diesel out as possible before attempting to start it.
If you take it to a shop and they want to drop the tank, etc. I'd
suggest to them using the pump to drain the tank. Like I say, I've
used this method many times with great success. You should be able to
find someone to do this for $100 or so. (Maybe less).

How to fit a diesel pump on a landrovertd5


Firstly, remember the TD5 is a common rail engine. It's only fuel pump (unless you have a webasto auxillary heater) is the in-tank high pressure pump. This is accessed through a panel in the boot floor.
