  1. Hi, can someone please tell me the correct spanner to use on the cylinder head star type bolts. I've got what I thought was a full set of this type of spanner but none seem to fit quite right. Any help will be sincerely appreciated' Thanks Ted
  2. Escort 55 Van Starting Problem

    Hi Hth, Thanks for reply, I'll strip fuel filter down and have a look. From what you've said it sounds as though the diaphragm is damaged. Thanks again Ted
  3. Hi, I have a 2001 Escort 55 van 1.8d (non turbo), with an endura engine. After recent starting problems, I fitted new glow plugs - no better. I thought it may be a fuel problem , so I pulled off the pipe from the fuel filter and tried pressing the primer a few times. Very little fuel came out, so I took off the fuel filter to see if that looked blocked. It seemed ok so I put it all back together again and now it wont fire up at all. I suspect this may be something to do with the fact the fuel filter was empty when I refitted it. Any help will be sincerely appreciated. Thanks in advance
