Default 307 starting problems.

After just joining the forum, I feel wrong asking for advice straight away, but I have hit a brick wall with my 307 2.0 HDI.

Basically on the way home from work 3 weeks ago, the engine just died. No bangs, no cloud of smoke out the back, just stopped working. Had to get towed home.

The starter turns the engine over ok, but just don't start up. I asked for advice from a breakdown mechanic, he said try easy start spray. It worked great, but when I stopped spraying into the air inlet the engine just died again. So tried the spray again, it started, but no response from the throttle. Again stopped spraying, engine stopped.

So I am assuming that I have a fault with the fuel system, i.e. not pushing fuel up to the injectors.

I am stuck at the moment, having to use my VW camper everyday at the moment. Any advice would be greatful.

Never really thought about how reliable the 307 was, till it broke down.

Hi

A you need number of things for your HDI to start you need crank/cam to be in sink, min fuel rail pressure, immo pass, min 10.5volts cranking ect.

The best way check cam belt and that fuel is getting to HP pump, after that get someone to plugin PP2000 it will workout much quicker.

Thanks Vpug

Thanks guys.

I have my own diagnostic tester, but it won't register on my car, works on other cars though.

If my crank/cam were out of sink, would it still start with the easy start spray?

I also tried pumping the rubber manual fuel pump, but that's already solid, i.e. already pressure in the system.

I have PM'd a local member to see if he can help.

Hi
When you say start if it just runs on easy start when spaying and stop seconds after spraying, all that tells you is you have compression.
Is the mill light on.

Thanks Vpug

Yes, we did have clutch problems, think it will need changing soon, pedal is very hard to push down, but always has been since we bought the car.

What is the mill light.

Probably not but its not starting anyway its just burning the easy start
