Hi all,

Its a 2004 1.4HDI 8v.

I have rebuilt the top end and have to say that the motor sounds better than before, but I have a problem with two low pressure fuel pipes, don't know where they connect too.

1. Fuel Temperature Sensor as a low pressure pipe that has a small non return valve, where does it connect too?

2. The "Leak off" pipe from the injectors, where does it connect too?

Any assistance in the above issues will be greatly appreciated.

Many Thanks
Jose

Seems I have found my problem.

The pipe from the injectors connects to the Fuel temperature Sensor, I also had the one way valve incorrectly installed.

Cheers.
