Default 2006 V70 d5 automatic, wont start - fuel related. :Help:!

Hi all,

New to the forum, itís been invaluable over the years.

I have a 2006 V70 d5 2.4 with automatic transmission and 94k miles on the clock. Purchased yesterday privately and when I tried to start it it was a little hesitant but started within 3 seconds. I then did a 200 mile trip and it was near faultless. I stopped the car and started it again about 30 seconds later and again it was a little sluggish but started.

Came to the car this morning and it wouldnít start at all, keeps cranking but nothing. I called the AA and he came out and is getting a load of fault codes which are all fuel system related. After 30 minutes of trying he had no success and Iíve now been towed to a garage. He tried easy start and that helped but still wouldnít hold the start. Battery is fine as well and there is half a tank of fuel in there.

So;

Any ideas on where to start? He said glow plug light goes out too quickly.

Also theí soot filter is fullí light is now on but we have been cranking for 30 mins.

Any help would be appreciated!

Lucas

Whatís the fuel gauge (not range) showing? Anywhere under 1/4 tank could point to fuel pump or filter.

Put fuel in it, and make sure its not on a slope.

The first response was probably right - filter and / or low pressure pump.

It has half a tank in it, the AA guy jacked it up to put it on a slope but no change. It was sluggish starting the night before but would start but now absolutely nothing, just cranks but nothing. Can a dirty fuel filter do this?

A clogged filter can, as it restricts the fuel supply.

Did the AA man give you the actual codes he read?

Hi all,

Just heard back from the garage this second and he says that itís likely that itís the electric fuel pump in the tank. Has anyone had an issue with one of these and can advise costs? Iíve asked him to price it but to gauge it would be handy to hear from one of you guys.

Regards, Lucas

If it's the pump, it's probably a £300 job at a garage but they should be able to flow test it to confirm rather than them guessing.
The in tank pump isn't a common failure whereas a dirty filter definitely is.
Not as much money in it for a garage though.....

It's easy to work out if the in tank pump is working or not - it makes a noise or remove a fitting to see if it flows - so "it's likely" doesn't sound firm enough to me.

Even if it is the pump the car will still start and run - if there's fuel in the right hand saddle of the tank. Stick a gallon in it and keep cranking.

Take the filter off, youíll want to change it anyway, and with a suitable container underneath turn the ignition on and see if you have a flow of diesel.

When I did mine, the pump was around £250 brand new, itís a reasonably easy (but very smelly) DIY job.
