Hi guys I have an 4.2 intercooled turbo 03 Gu patrol that I've owned since 2005.
Never had a problem until now...
When cold mainly she starts but I have to pump the gas to keep it running. Struggle for about 3 mins then comes good.
Happening more frequently now..

ANY IDEAS GUYS ????

I’d be suspecting a glow plug issue if it only does it when it’s cold. Either that or an air leak in the fuel lines.

More than likely glow plugs, does it start easily or does it take longer to fire than it should?
Could be injectors and could be HPFP

No it fires up no problem first kick.
I would get 100m to a 1km then it would start fluttering. I gotta pump pedal to save it dying or it would stall and I'd re kick her and this happens for couple minutes before coming good ...

PS. I have noticed Diesel smell in cab
So maybe could be air leak in fuel lines.
I'll try check that ...
Let ya know but cheers guys

Dicky little paper element fuel filter back down near the fuel tank crapped itself and clogged the line?
