    Default 405 SRDT 97 Air in Fuel line

    My Car starts after standing over night very badly and there is a lot of blue smoke.I have put a new Battery in it. New Glowplugs. all new O Rings in Fuel filter. I have discovered that when i Prime the system with the the Rubber egg until it is getting hard in the morning the car will start quite easily. During the day withe 2 times Glowpluging there is no issue. Now someone suggested to me to put a electric Fuel Pump near the Tank. It should make the starting much easier. It should also makes the car run better. I have a recondition Bosch Diesel Pump fitted 2 Years ago. What do you think I could do?
    Cheers

    Default second that

    the primer not only pumps, but has a one way valve in it which prevents fuel from running back to the tank if you have to pump it up its, running back PUGS
