Hi.
Up until Saturday the car was running fine.
Turned the engine on, it turns over, but won't start.
Glow plugs checked, and fine.
Fuel supply is only coming out in drips, as opposed to 1600psi squirts.
I guess it's a fuel pump problem, but I have an issue with the ECU. In that replacing the fuel pump with another 'used' one, it may not be recognised by the ECU.
Is there a way round this?
Any information will be greatly appreciated.
