Your ecu engine computer is bad. It's what sends the signal to the fuel pump to turn on, prime. Have your ecu checked and replaced if necessary.

12ht wont prime

filling the filters before installing will make priming go more quickly.
once the pump is primed crack open the fuse line at the injector while cranking until you have fuel pulsing out, close it then move on to the next injector.
keep doing this until the engine runs smoothly.
it may start running before all the injectors have been purged so keep clear of all moving parts and a fire extinguisher handy would be a good idea.

It sounds like you are talking about a diesel engine as gas engines are self priming. Lift pump or primer pump may be defective. Check for loose fittings or lines and damaged o-rings at filter housing. Sounds like you are sucking air somewhere.

I ran my peugeot 406 out of diesel and i think there is an air lock as it starts but doesnt keep running? i had to click on 2006 peugeot 405 as it wouldnt let me select a product. my car is infact a 1996...

406 1996 Diesel would either be 1.9D, 1.9TD or 2.1TD

Each of these use a vacuum type distribution pump, which means once the fuel has managed to get to the pump via means of initial priming it looks after itself by constantly sucking fuel. If the engine stops after a a short time it could be a blockage caused by running very low on fuel. First thing to check is the primer system. You may have the squeazy balloon type or the purflux set up with a hand primer button. The issue is common to be at this point but hard to diagnose.

What I have done in the past is disconnect the pipe going to the main pump and given a seperate feed from a pipe submerged in a can of diesel, if it runs fine then it rules out mechanical and pump issues leaving it only to be a supply issue.

I have a 1998 gt mustang i recently put a 255lph pump in alls been fine since, had a tun and all for all the mods. but the other day the car wouldnt start. primed the throttle body and was able to get to...

A couple of extra checks are turn the car over and try to start while some one squeezes the fuel return line,At the rail,with tool that doesnt damage fuel line.It eliminates fuel bypass through the fuel rail.No need to undo anything.Have someone confirm you have power while Cranking at the fuel pump end.It eliminates power supply issue.If these two test work out ok then the pump is looking very much like the culprit

Starting problem

If the hard grinding noise is a metallic sound only when you start it, sounds like your starter bolts are loose or the starter itself needs replacing. fuel pressure doesnt cause any particular noises like that. If your fuel pressure or pump had problems, your vehicle simply wouldnt start
