Hi, I've got a 54 plate Mondeo that won't start, it starts with a bump start but when its sat for a while it won't go, it seems to be a fuel pressure problem its diesel and had a new management system fitted plus new injectors, it was running fine but as of 2weeks ago it won't fire up its a 2ltr diesel

Hello, the engine seems to turn over fast, it has a new battery fitted, aint seen the glow plug light flashing, don't know what the fuel pressure is, engine only fires on a bump start then starts ok for a while but when its been sat a couple of hours it wont start again, after last years MOT it would not run at all so a fitter changed the injectors still no joy ended up changing management unit, they had the car for 6 months after that it ran fine, just MOTed it and it wont start again, its as if there is no fuel pressure.

Hi there thanks

Ok have you had a fuel leak off test carried out

Can you check the glow plug light to see if it's flashing on crank
