Poor Starting D4D

Recommended Posts

Help please anyone serviced my D4D yesterday myself as I was p***** off paying garage prices for silly jobs and one of the things I did was replace the fuel filter. Now my rav won't start from cold unless I prime it using the primer pump on the top of the fuel filter, any ideas why it should go from a great starting car to a comlete dog i,ve checked the haynes manual and followed the instructions exactly so i,m lost as to what i,ve done wrong and assistance would be greatly appreciated

Have you missed off the rubber ring on the top of the filter? That will allow the fuel to gravity feed back to the tank while standing.

check with positioning of filter cylinder

it could be wrongly positioned resulting the pump sucks an air.
