    Make sure the housing is full before resealing
    Crank the engine no more than 10 times, then stop
    Repeat
    It shouldn't take more than 3 times
    Allow the engine to idle for about 90 seconds

    Take the lid off again and pour derv slowly into the middle of the filter (in situ obviously) through where the bolt goes right to the brim.

    Refit lid, carnk over as m8internet says and when it catches put the throttle to the floor for a few seconds. It may well still cut out after doing this (mine did last week) but persevere .

    Crack an injector pipe a bit and crank the engine. When you see diesel dripping out of the nut, tighten it back and crank the engine again. This should help..

    Thanks for the advice guys. Luckily my mate popped by with his car and we had to use the jump leads and managed to get the car going after a few tries Since we failed with jump leads with my neighbors 1 litre fiesta - not enough juice and he said he car was smoking.

    So glad that it doesn't need to go to the garage.
