Welcome to the forum. :D

I would get TDC's read 1st (error codes).

TDDI's are prone for fuel pump failures (EDC bolted to top of pump)

Yes get code reader. NOT a OBDII one as 2000-2006 Connects are NOT OBDII compliant.

F-Super 2 here will work

Hi I found the problem it was the EDC on top of the fuel pump had that fitted and programmed and it started fine it also had a new diesel filter it was running fine all day just when I when to start it the next morning it wouldn't start then managed to start it after cranking the injectors and there was diesel up and leaving the ignition of for about a minute the turn the key and it starts after about 3-4 turns and Thort it was fine then it done the same the next morning just wondering if anyone else has had this problem it's fine when it's started just when the engine is getting cold just wondering if it could be something to do with the fuel filter being fitted Much help would be appropriated

sounds like could be drawing air possibly around filter area if it was ok before filter changed
