Grand Picasso won't start.. intank fuel pump?

Unread post by venbo_ »

Hello everyone. My 2013 Grand Picasso 1.6 hdi stayed for about 6 months and yesterday I have tried but it won't start. At some point turning the engine to start it started and stopped. I have unplugged the fuel line coming from the tank and there is no fuel coming while attempting to start which means - sender(low pressure in-tank fuel pump) doesn't work. Tank half full with diesel. I have tried to find any info where is the sender located- is it in-tank or next to the tank, or at front (engine bay). The most frustrating part is - there's no access to the in-tank basket from inside the car (under the back seat) there is no any cover to open and to take it out. Can anyone please help me with some info where the low pressure pump is located on that model? VIN: VF7**************[VIN obfuscated, can be read by forum staff]
Many thanks for your time and attention.

Does it definitely have a pump in the tank? If there is a hand primer under the bonnet there wont be a pump in the tank.

Thank you. I am not sure- as I have read some technical information - looks like it's without in-tank pump. Yes - I found a primer on top of the fuel filter. Is it possible to check the VIN somewhere in internet to receive info about the fuel tank etc...? Thanks again.

Yes - If you can post your VIN here (it will appear masked), we can post details/diagrams of the fuel system for the car.
You'll need to make a small donation to the forum to cover the costs of this, which will give you the ability to request further parts info (for any Citroen/Peugeot vehicle) during this year and next.
