    Default quick 3ltr v6 diesel question...

    right one for the tractor lotion boffins my mate has a 3ltr v6 o5 reg in at his work and it wont start, it has been bumped up the back end lighty and has been repaired at the garage but it wont start at all,i was wondering if these motors have a fuel cut off switch? if so where would it be found???? its just turning over and over,
    its been on the computer and its saying no fuel getting to the rail,the pump is working as you can hear it.

    Sounds like some sort of fuel cutoff, no idea where you'd find it though and don't have access to my Haynes...

    Fuel cutoff switch

    Open the bonnet
    Back of the engine
    Plunger looking item, with a button on top
    Press firmly

    However, since this is a diesel, if you have been running the engine before resetting the fuel cut off switch then you may need to reprime the fuel system

    Don't suppose a 2.2DTi would have this would it? Mine tonight as decided it doesn't want to start, seems to be an incurable problem which is getting on my goat now, it is on a VERY mild incline facing up

    If you get it to a filling station, fill it to the max and then don't let it drop below a half or 3/4... Had this on my old 2.2 DTi Vec B and put it down to a dodgy tank sucker-upper pipe type thing. Always filled it at 2/3's and never had a problem after that...

    Hmmmph!!!! Thanks for the advice, I get this issue normally around 1/4 left, but in this day and age I should be able to park a car up hill, on reserve and leave it there for more than 24hrs!!!! ARRRRGGGGGGGGGGGGH!!!!!

    My borther's gonna tow me round the block a few hundred yards tomorrow morning, I'll fill it up then too. Cheers!

    I think that maybe something had come loose in the tank - without knowing the makeup of it it's hard to say, but it cured it...
