Good evening Mike,
Details of the vehicle are as follows: Jeep Grand Cherokee CRD Overland A. 2685 cc. Diesel. First reg. March 2004.
reg no. YR04 ZGS.
My local garage thought that the problem might be an air leak in the tube that connects the fuel filter with the injection pump. We replaced the tube but the problem still persists and after the car has been standing for an hour or so it runs for a second or two on the first turn of the starter and then dies. It then requires about fifteen seconds of turning on the starter motor before it will fire, it then runs normally.
The car had a full service, immediately before the problem started, which included a fuel filter change
