Mike, UK Nissan Car Mechanic replied 3 years ago.
Hello again -

Im afraid there seemed to be a problem with the chat system so I have switched us out to the QA system..

Basically with the issue you have - the first thing to check would be the fuel filter. If the filter is old / clogging... then it will be the fault. Pumping the primer forces the fuel through so it starts -so a new filter would cure that.

If its not that , then its usually the primer unit itself - the whole unit needing replacing... but the system should be checked for any air leaks first - Remember, air can leak - be drawn into the system and cause fuel to drain back to the tank - and you wont always see fuel leaking - air can leak out / in... and fuel won't leak out because of the weight difference between air and diesel.

So check, work through as above to cure this issue you have.

Let me know if you need anything more on this at all -
