Ford Transit does not start at the hotel

Transit 2,5D Bj1999 no longer starts - who knows?

Hello, I need some help.

My father-in-law's transit, a 2.5 diesel no longer starts. It started when it was very cold. Then I got hold of a good new battery - well, still not started. The preheating plug probably also got no electricity and no diesel because the relay was broken. I converted everything to buttons for manual preheating. But - still nothing to start. Even towing over a hundred meters didn't bring anything. I have now unscrewed the injection lines in front of the nozzles - lo and behold, nothing comes out! The diesel filter was not changed for a while, but I opened it, looked OK so far ... Now I wonder whether a transit has a pre-feed pump in the tank? It could be broken, then the injection pump has nothing to deliver ... That would also be a reason why no diesel comes from the line to the pre-flame plug, there is a solenoid valve on the filter housing, but where does the pressure come from? Furthermore, I would like to know what the cable at the bottom of the diesel filter is for, what is being queried there?

Does anyone know whether the Lucas pump can handle air, or is it self-bleeding? Maybe the pump drew air into the diesel line somewhere in the extreme cold.?!?

Thanks for any advice ..

this is a water level indicator

No, there is no feed pump ... let the pump draw in directly from a tank (without filter), then you will immediately know whether there is a problem with the filter tank or a line.

The system does not normally need to be vented, but you should still not install an empty filter, otherwise you would have to organ for a very long time ...

this is not a feed pump but the injection pump;)

With a feed pump, an extra pump is meant that is usually located at the back of the tank and transports the diesel to the front, something that doesn't exist with this model / engine ... and certainly not mechanically driven ...

The diesel pump is in the tank, between the nozzle of the return lines.

There are also 2 cables for the power supply.

where exactly should it be installed? And how is it powered?

It is driven by a shaft in the engine on the left under the exhaust manifold in the direction of travel

If interested, I can take a picture

First of all thanks for the verbal help, then I'll probably dismantle the tank, I've already seen the cables that lead over the tank somewhere ...

I have one more question, if you follow the lines from the diesel filter to the tank, they go into a kind of can in the area of ​​the exhaust manifold that is flanged directly to the engine block. Is that some kind of pre-feed pump? I'll try to take a photo later ...

It will probably be. I then installed a new one, but it did not last long or the cam on the shaft is probably worn out ... I then took an electrical one from the accessories and since then no more problems

It is almost desperate ___. The box is still not running. I dragged it 200m, installed a new filter, a lot of diesel arrives in front of the ESP, something out of the ESP too, apparently this Lucas pump must have drawn an enormous amount of air or be extremely difficult to bleed. I entered the ESP directly with a large funnel, then it starts, but strangely spits some diesel out of the entrance before it goes out again ...

Well continue testing tomorrow :(

So, I tried a lot again. The old filter looked OK, by the way, nothing special came out of visible dirt.

I unscrewed 3 high-pressure lines in front of the nozzles, I didn't get on one that well, so only 3s. Put a clean handkerchief under each nozzle and then let it run properly. There is actually only one line of diesel coming out ... either the pump is mechanically in the bucket or clogged. I rule out an electrical problem with the storage compartment, because then nothing would come out at all. Phew, now I don't know what to do next. The car ran until 2 weeks ago, was parked in the evening and didn't start at -15 ° in the morning. No ESP of this actually breaks?!? or? I think about whether it is not yet vented enough. Somebody told me that you have to play the organ for 20 minutes until the air is completely out. I haven't had a nerve for so long, especially when something is coming out of a line. What do you mean ???

There is not enough electricity to organize for 20 minutes.

A suspicion that arises, a broken shaft in the pump?

If that happened, there is still no need for a new pump, a replacement is available.

Did some research on the net yesterday evening. It seems to be quite common to tow the car 2km after a dry run ... Now build a pressure tank with diesel in front of the pump and then let it run again until no more air comes out of the high pressure pipes.

Saturday continues.
