    Ford Cmax 1.6tdci probs

    Today some one asked me to look at a car for them
    its a 1.6tdci they had Red Diesel in the car but since put over 100L of road diesel in the car an its now not working

    I have taken the diesel filter out an it had some water in it so i flushed out the diesel lines and replaced filter all good you would think bleed the system
    car will not start still.

    so undo the fuel pipe on injectors an turn over I am not getting a lot of diesel out of the pipe

    dose any one know if the Cmax 1.6tdci has a pump in the tank ?

    ps dont buy one dam fords

    yea it does have the pump in the tank.

    suprised he bought it with the 1.6tdci (only 90kw) and a big car.

    tbh might sound harsh but serves him right, why was he/she using red diesel (apart from conning the system as its illegal)

    its a 1.6tdci AUTO dam car was pushed out of work shop an told them to pick it up
    found small bits of Brass in line so pump is dead i think
    Flushed it out an filled up with road derv
    told them to pop it to fords
