prime the fuel system, there should be a priming bulb near the fuel filter in the engine compartment

thanks mat, i found the answer on the estima owners club. just like you said there is a black plastic on the fuel filter and i think its used to take out airlock. i pressed it a few times and the car started with no problems.

keep priming until button goes very stiff, as you are turning the key to start get someone to keep priming and should start. Diesels get air locked wich is why they have a primer.
