Engine stopped while climbing steep hill at 60mph and cannot get it going again. There is no fuel in the fuel filter although I do have half a tank of diesel, I have put a syphon pump on the pipe from the filter to the fuel pump and filled the filter with diesel, but on using the syphon. it just empties filter. I am now putting diesel into the pipe from the tank to the filter (from the filter end), and hope this will provide the suction needed to pull the fuel from the tank. Could be a blockage between the tank and the fuel filter. Has anyone come across this problem or have any idea how it can be solved. Shame the only pump on the fuel system in this model is in the engine and it is very expensive to replace. Hope it doesn't come to this!
