Hello and Welcome to justanswer....

Im afraid this is an internal problem in the pump unit...usually one or more of the internal seals .

Unfortunately its not a diy job to repair it as once a diesel ump is opened up and stripped it needs special tools and equipment to enable rebuilding it and calibration etc so that it will work once its refitted.

You will likely have a number of local diesel specialists where you live and I would recommend you use one of these as everyday garages and dealers wont strip pumps for the reasons given above - they always despatch them for repair to such places.

If you want or need a contact number of a firm that I have used over the years for such things, I will gladly give you one -they operate a timed pick up and delivery service. But one of the above options is your only way forward on this one I'm afraid..

I sincerely XXXXX XXXXX helps you~I will be back here later today ~ Let me know if you need more help...

Kind Rgds...MIKE
