Hi my mechanic managed to get it running but it’s pulling air in the fuel system from some where. You can. See from the fuel in the clear line every so often a line of air will rush through

I’ve had a similar issue, our 2014 diesel 2.0 had been struggling to start and then if u sit for a second it would stall. Start ok then it was fine. Been going on for months to be honest although the starting has only been there for a couple of months.
Decided to have the RAC out today and he showed me bubbles flowing along that clear line tube and he said it’s the fuel filter. He didn’t think it was the pump as it sounded too good. Now my only concern is that we had the filter changed in January this year but we really haven’t done a lot of mileage because of the Covid sh1t.
Ford wanted £109 inc vat to fit a filter, local garage £42
Any thoughts
