    i know its easy done got stickers on order.anyway today i tried the priming thing i ran the low pumps half a dozen times the pumps ran for about a minute at a time before cutting off.so i am now thinking of replacing the high pressure pump it seems the most obvious answer now because if i crank the engine with the rail feed slackend off a little the flow increses slightly so i reckon the pumps buggerd.

    Silly question - you've not unplugged the cam sensor while checking everything over have you?

    My local BP has pumps where the writing on the handle is badly faded and, despite the handles being black, they are pumping unleaded.
    Many people have been caught.

    now when I think about this I am more likely to put petrol into my car than me putting diesel in to the wife's I just tried the diesel nozzle and it will not fit into the wife's so she is safe and will get me of the hook and putting petrol in mine I can only blame myself

    Just used it this weekend to do the seals on my hp pump. Nothing to go wrong as far as I can see - screw in the big ring, then the sprocket holder (22mm) without the central bolt. This part goes in quite far. Next, tighten the central bolt and the taper should release with a 'crack' sound. Now loosen the central bolt so the new pump can fit in. Rave says you need to remove the aux belt but you don't.

    Petrol has a tendency to kill your fuel pump as diesel lubricates it and the petrol won't. Had a colleague do the same and the vehicle progressively got worse until fuel pump packed up totally.

    aye the bloke at the scrap yard yesterday reckond common rail diesel comon rail pumps cant handle the pressure as petrols thinner and cuts it way through the seals easier.and right enough it has no pressure surley this new one will do he reckons the injectors should be ok as the seals in the pump will just have split.
