Non starting Diesel X-type.

Recommended Posts

My son's 2008 2.2 diesel wouldn't start at a set of traffic lights despite running fine until he stopped the engine due to a delay at the lights, so it was stopped foe about 5 minutes. Taken to his local garage which couldn't get it started after eliminating the inertia switch and doing other tests, no fault messages came up and still haven't. Taken to my local garage and a newly reconditioned set of injesctors were fitted. It ran for about five minutes and then stopped. Fuel pump was working prior to fitting the injectors but after the five minute running it was found not to be working any more. A new pump was fitted but still the car won't start despite the pump having good pressure. The fuel filter was checked and found to just have good clean diesel in it and was bled for air upon refitting. Has anyone got any ideas what can be causing this, the car was running very well before the traffic lights.
