2.0hdi 57 plate dispatch, dies then won’t start

Post by Christian rocky1 »

Hi my van started fine then I reversed up and it died and then wouldn’t start so I squeezed the primer pump and push the accelerator and it started? It has done this two days running now 😩 any help would be appreciated 🙏🏻

Probably a leak in the fuel system somewhere. Have you changed the filter lately? If so make sure its sealing properly, if not change it.

Thanks Peter, I have only owned the van 2months it was supposed to have been just serviced. It has been fine until the other day, it seems to be once it’s left for a few hours it starts then dies after a few seconds then won’t start until I have primed the fuel pump?
