This must be the turbo version.
The epic pump was fly by wire and suffered from water getting into the plug on the back of the pump.
Try removing the plug and check. If wet dry out and try.

Also the throttle pedal potentiometer used to fail, so the engine would only tickover and not rev up.

Ford Van won't start. Engine turns over but nothing else happens. We think it's the alarm system


Buy some easy start spray, and spray it down the air intake, make sure your battery is fully charged.
Your problem sounds like low compression, nothing to worry about on a ford transit if it is an old modle

Ford Transit warning light.


red spanner means van is due for a service. You can turn it off yourself by turning ignition key to position 2 and then holding down the brake and clutch pedals at the same time til the light flashes then goes out. Should take about 15 seconds.

hi, heres some advice regarding your vehicle, 1st replace your fuel pump for i believe its not working really good, 2nd you might want to check on that engine temperature, when the engine is hot you find your engine very weak and acting really slugish. check for radiator / hose leaks, try replacing your radiator cap for it can be the cause of heat too, make sure your coolant is sitting at the right level and not exceeding, check the auxillary fans for it may be weak and have an oil change, it will really help.

Ford transit 1998 turbo diesel red light


this sound like you fuel injector pump stop solenoid is faulty it has an elec wire attached to it that with ign turned on it opens (clicks ) then clicks off/closes the fuel supply to the pump so engine stops ok? however the seal on the valve may have parted from the operating piston valve on solenoid and although it is free to allow fuel enough for start and running will also restrict fuel flow for more revs resulting in power loss as you mention ? also when ign is turned off the valve will operate but seal being not attached to piston ? fuel can still flow/seep thro to f i p and allow engine to continue to run ? hope you understand ?? this solenoid valve is a screw in type normally on top of f i p with a single wire to energize it looks like a larger type of temp sender unit ?

Transit not starting


The engine in this model doesnt need glow plugs, Its direct injection. If the van is not starting then it will be fir another reason. Ok, can you get a 17mm spanner and loosen the pipes onto the fuel injectors. Crank engine and see if there is fuel coming out. If not just crank it for a few minutes and see if some appears. If fuel appears, tighten pipes and crank for little while longer, see if it goes. If this doesnt work, i have a few more things to try.
