Hi could you give us a litle more info

petrol or diesel

yes its a 2.8 turbo diesel ive also tried running it without filler cap just to make sure it wasnt vapour locking in the tank

Hi the most obvious possibility would be an air leak in the fule line before the pump alowing the fuel to drain back. also its work checking the fuel filter is installed corectly and that the seal in not pinched.

Another thing to check esp as its starting to get a bit colder in the mornings is that all the glow plugs are working ok
