    confused cannot get air lock out of Diesel fuel lines

    Hi guys,

    CAR .... 2ltr DTI vectra C 53 plate



    I replaced my fuel filter today and now the car wont start. I know i have an air lock .

    Checked manual and it states i need a ( KM-948 ) i have done everything to the best of my ability but to no avail.

    Could getting my car towed do the trick ??????

    Regards,

    Push it down a hill and jump start it lol Worked with our old Vec 2.0DTi
    It will force the airlock through.

    Or you could try undo the injector pipes just a bit and get someone to start the car for you when you look at the pipes for diesel...

    Thank you for your reply.

    My friend has a solid towbar, so he said he would come to mine tomorrow to tow it

    Where i live there are no steep hills to go down.

    I was wanting to know if i got my car towed if this would do the trick.

    So your answer suggests it should work.

    Fingers crossed and thanx again , i will report back after we have tried towing and let you know the outcome.

    Kind regards,

    Steve.

    is it a diesel? when you changed filter did you top up filter housing with diesel? you should do this when a new filter has been fitted??

    Top up the fuel filter bowl,then get hold of one of these...http://www.screwfix.com/search.do;js...n=submit...and prime the system,don't be tempted to keep turning engine over like i did,and was told that this can ruin the fragile pump apparantly.
