HI,

I am sorry that you have not been helped yet.

So when it starts and runs for a few seconds, are there any warning lights on the dash? And it will not start again until the following morning, correct?

Hi Eric, Vin is WFOTXXTTPT9U71211 Malfunction and engine lights are on both go of with engine cranked over there is lack of fuel to the injectors, have just replaced the fuel filter and have ordered the pipe from the filter to the pump just in case it is drawing air. The full story I bought this van a few weeks ago and the seller had the first start problem he put it in to a local garage to sort they had it for two weeks and when picked it up it started first time and all that day but next morning no start
