I have a Peugeot 307 1.4 HDI (year 2004, Europe) that started this morning but right now it doesn't want to start. What do I mean by that? Well, by turning the key the engine cranks but it doesn't run so I can keep doing this until the battery voltage goes under 11V.
What I've checked so far:
- I have enough fuel
- the battery has enough voltage to crank the engine (if not I recharge it until the voltage > 12.7V)
- all the fuse are working (none are blown)
- the fuel pump located on the tank works (by turning the engine I see some fuel flowing through the transparent fuel line)
- I saw some air (thought that there might be some air) on the fuel line so I bled the air from the fuel line manually by using the fuel line (rubber) pump; I mean I pressed that pump until I saw no bubble flowing through the transparent fuel line.
My feeling is that the problem is due to air trapped in fuel line which locks the fuel line preventing the normal supply of fuel into cylinder.
I would appreciate some advise / hints.
Note: I'm not a mechanic but I like to fix the car when I can.
