yes glo light comes on strait after staring engine

and also after hard axeleration.

Hi there thanks
Ok the most common cause if this issue is a partially blocked fuel filter
Of the fuel presdure deviates + or- 50 braid the desired value Then limp home mode mode is brought in
The fuel filters should be replaced every 37,500 miles and are prone to blocking as under hard acceleration you are demanding more fuel
This should be ruled out first as a preliminary diagnostic as it is a serviceable item
If the fault persists then it's most commonly an excessively wit injector leaking back too much fuel
In this case a fuel leak off test should be done to clarify this
If you need anymore help or advice on this issue please let me know
If you are Completely satisfied with my answer /advice

changed fuel filter & can't bleed sistem having to be towed to garage

to get this done resulting in a big bill

Hi there good morning to you
You need to hand prime the fuel filter to get the fuel up
You did not mention you were going to replace the filter as I would have explained the procedure
I feel it's unfair to rate my advice poor as I was not asked how to replace the filter or I would have given a detailed explanation on its replacement
