FTM910 Cranking fine and will fire on ether, no to glow light flashing when cranking, I assume that it has fuel pump in tank ?

Do you have the chassis number as this reg does not come up
Do you mean the engine fires on easy start

yes easy start. we are in NZ so rego won't work. chassis probably won't either??
no fueil issue as tries cranking.
thinking its the shutoff solenoid - do you know where it is on this vehicle?
I can try the vin firstly to see what engine set up is fitted
Unless you have this information. Ie: 2.0tddi or 2.4tdci etc

Hi there
I was just checking the setup
Ok your vehicle is the 2.4TDDI 115bhp ) direct injection) no electrical connectors on injectors (this confirms it is a TDDI )
The TDDI Varient doesn't have a fuel cut off switch or a fuel lift pump in the tank the fuel system
I advise. Hand priming the filter and then the injectors must be cracked one at a time to enable starting (and bleeding the system of air
If the vehicle fires on easy start then we know it's a fuel concern (most commonly a faulty fuel pump )
If you crank the engine and slacken one pipe at a time the fuel should spurt with pressure from the injector pipe If it is just foaming /dribbling out
Kind regards ***** *****
