That sounds exactly like my problem Mike-I had a look at the fuel lines, but I can't get to them all, finding a hole (if it's therer!) is going to be tricky!

ok, i've check the fuel lines as best i can-no leaks that i can see. Less bubbles are coming through now anyway....BUT car STILL doesn't start properly! Just ordered a cam shaft position sensor from euro carparts so will see if that makes a difference. If not will have to concede and to to ford :(

p.s. I only changed the filter itself, not the housing

Ok, so I've now changed the fuel filter...primimg it was a bit of a pain and gave the battery a bit of abuse...Eventually got it to start again though and left it running to helpout the battery a bit. Whilst it was running i noticed that a load of bubbles were going through the outlet pipe every 10 to 15 seconds. Is this normal, or does it indicate i've got air getting in somewhere-which may well be the cause of the original starting problem like mike suggested...not had time to check the fuellines yet though....they also look like a pain to get to :wacko:

Yep same here Ippy, the cleaner didn't help...I don't know if one brand of glow plugs would be better than another? It's a 4 spanner job in Haynes (as is changing the EGR), I only trust myself up to 3 ^_^. I think it also depends on how old they are - if you've got loads of mileage then the glow plugs can become a bit deformed (so i'm told)..this can make them really tricky to get out-if you break them it could be mega-cost to have them drilled out.
I'll have a go at the fuel filter this weekend when there is a bit of spare light!
