Dear customer, thank you for choosing Justanswer. My name is***** would like to help you.

The problem is that the injection system is completely empty, venting it takes forever.

First of all, the diesel fuel filter must be refilled. This is best done by vacuuming the filter connection for the return line to the tank.

Once the filter is vented again, the nuts on the injectors must be loosened slightly. While one person is starting, the second person watches when the diesel comes and quickly tightens the screws again.

But it is best if a workshop does this, they have experience and usually also the equipment for such a thing.

I would be very happy about a rating with 5 stars over the star bar at the top of the page, without this rating the site operator does not pay us experts.
