Hello and Welcome..My name is ***** ***** say what Transit you have exactly but all the engines are driven by either a timing belt or chain... Given your description of what happened , you could have a broken timing belt / chain... that certainly needs checking anyway at this stage.If its proven not to be that - then you have a suspect fuel pump failure - I know you say you have had the pump checked... but you dont say how... it has to be tested properly. Fuel may be coming through - but it has to be at the right / specified pressure ----Assuming you have / your auto elec has ruled all else out -such as wiring issues , electronics etc , it comes down to one or the other as above... Really if it comes to the chain / belt is ok, you will need proper diesel test equipment on the fuel pump to test that - a local Diesel specialist will have the equipment for sure to test that for you and go from there.Let me know how you go..and / or let me know if you need anything further on this..~>>~~>>~ Meanwhile now - Please do click on the "Exc / Ok rating" for me at this time.. "Thank you" in advance for that ... Note that you can get back to me anytime at all after doing the rating - it doesn't close you out -- Best Rgds, MIKE
