  1. Thanks for this information, it does appear there isn't a fuel cut off switch. It would appear there is no fuel getting to the injectors or fuel pump, and I have been told by a mobile mechanic that my high pressure fuel pump is knackered! Which is going to cost the best part of £1000 to fix. I have been advised by a different garage, however, that there is a low pressure pump in the tank which is more likely to be the culprit. On getting a quote from another garage, I have also been told that there is no low pressure pump on the 1.6 diesels and everything is driven by the crank driven high pressure pump. I am therefore very confused and unsure where to turn! Does anyone know if there is a low pressure pump on the 1.6 dielels? To make things worse, the high pressure pump is now making a horrible noise (from the solenoid I think). Does anyone have any words of wisdom?
  2. Please help! I have a 2006 Focus 1.6 tdci, which I recently jacked up for an oil change, but on dropping the car back down off axle stands the car won't start! I am pretty certain I have narrowed it down to a problem with the fuel system, but can't get it to work. I believe that the previous model had a fuel shut off switch (or inertia switch), but I can't seem to find it on this model. Does anyone know where it is, or if this model even has one? Thanks in advance, Rick.
