hi all got the motherinlaw's c3 1.4 hdi and it had a leeking injector washer.
fixed that no problems gave her the car back and it stopped on her.
got air in the fuel squeezing the primer you can see it going back and forth inthe pipe.
question is should the primer have a one way valve.
and is there any populer places for air to get in the feed side.
vac checked the fuel system on the engine and it held steady
so i am ether not moving the air or its some thing else
