Hello all looking for help. I have acquired a 2002 zetec a tdci with 99k on the clock. It's a Non runner.

Problem is it won't start. New battery and will turn over but won't kick into life. Have detached fuel pipes from filter to the engine, no fuel getting to engine but is being returned. Even bypassing this an pouring straight from a funnel to ensure diesel is gettin to engine still nothing.

Snap on diagnostic computer finds no faults. Although sometimes when turning ignition in dials sweep up then down. Engine management light stays on. No figures on dash board just dashes.

Anyone give me a step for a hint?

it could be many things on a non start, the car is showing all the signs of a low battery or connection(dials sweep and dashes) if the eml is on there will be a code in the memory, is the reader your using compatable as diesel cars were not obd untill 2004 ?

It's a new battery that's now on the car so shouldn't be the battery. As for the scanner that could be the problem however it's a snap on one which u have to identify the car you are diagnosing. But the EML is not on now.

Does the car start at all now? if you put the headlights on as you try to start the car do they flicker like mad, and does the car click repeatedly?

Sounds like the batteries gone again, if your turning the key and getting barely any life and nothing more than rapid clicks then its not getting enough juice to attempt turning over the motor...

Have had the car connected to a brand new battery and still nothing. Just turns over doesn't burst into life.

ok given that its trying to turn over and fails, have you taken the plugs out and seen if they spark or glow?

my suspicions are fuel delivery, I suggest start with the fuel filter, replace that, the housing and seals. if the fuel flows up to their, theres your problem, if not, then you could have a blockage up at tank level...

That's my next point of call.

As I said took the fuel pipe off from the filter to the rail and there was no diesel coming through. But even with attaching a funnel and pouring diesel directly to fuel tail still no life.
