Can won't start :(

Post by Megarett on Sat Mar 28, 2015 12:17 pm

We replaced the fuel filter and part of the main fuel line coming from the filter now our van won't start. It sounds like no fuel is getting to the engine.
We have triple checked the wiring and it is all good.
Any ideas? Is the fuel sender very sensitive to the length of the fuel line going from it to the fuel filter?

This is a 2007 piaggio porter van.

I am sad Sad

Is it a canister type? if it is it will need filling with fuel fist to prime it. Back fill with fuel and give that a try. Also try with the fuel pipe off just turning the ignition to number 2 on and off to get the fuel pump to surge the fuel up the line, no need to actually start the engine. If none comes out you can suspect the fuel pump which should make a noise.

metal weld epoxy will get you out of trouble if it is just a hole you are talking about until a replacement can be had? even halfrauds sell that.
