[Engine] Help please 1.9d NOW SOLVED!!
Thumbs Up 
I recently bought a 2001 1.9 diesel van and until yesterday everything was great but then it lost power and wouldn't rev so I pulled over and tried checking for air in the fuel by pumping the priming pump, which is wet with diesel when used. Now it will only fire for a second and then dies has anyone had a similar problem or got any ideas please? It has only done 86000 miles.
Hi Oli89 and welcome to the forum you will find a nice friendly bunch here.
Thanks, also I think the she is stuck as when I turn it over I get white smoke from unburnt fuel out of the intake . But a stuck egr shouldn't stop it running surely?
The primer shouldn't be wet with diesel so there must be a leak there and a leak will allow air into the fuel system ..... air leaks stop engines.

Try and stop the fuel leakage first then bleed the system via the primer and then bleed at the pump itself.

It has been few years now but I'm pretty sure there is a bleed point at the injection pump.

Look on the Forum search for a downloadable Haynes Manual - free - which should help you.
Thanks does anyone know the procedure for bleeding the pump and fuel lines on this engine?
Bleeding is in Haynes Manual ..... have a search on Forum and download for free.
Just a quick update, when the van initially lost power it would still idle but not rev and stupidly I thought air in the fuel lines and went searching for the pump , which was dry and when I first pushed it seemed stuck (likely pushing it after probably years of it not being primed has nackered the diaphragm and that is why it is now wet)
Not 2 minutes later I noticed a vacuum pipe had come away from a diaphragm underneath the eye valve butterfly I have put this back but now cannot get it to run.
Am I likely right in thinking
The initial massive loss of power was due to the vacuum pipe coming off
And that
Because I fiddled with the priming pump It is now letting air into the fuel system and this is preventing it from running?

Has anyone else had issues with the priming pumps?
Just want to know if anyone else has had issues with these before I go and spend 100 pound on a stupidly over priced piece of plastic.
Sorry the above post should read ...." Butterfly valve underneath the egr " stupid autocorrect
Try putting the pipe back on first, is the other pipe there as well - should be two of them.
Both pipes are often removed and blanked off to isolate the egr.
Yeah did that at side of the road, both pipes are there but still will only fire and then die almost immediately, which seems like a fueling issue to me? Hence the new filter housing as with the plunger being wet it must be letting air in
